Breezy Point Par-Tee News
Last Thursday’s round was a good one since the sun didn’t start to warm up the course until after the first hour and a half of play. We also had the largest crowd so far, 55 members, and the lowest score of the season, 60, with Doris Neimeth responsible for that. Nancy Heffernan, Muriel Hellveigel, Peggy Honahon, Theresa Gearity and Mildred Seligman rejoined us for their first game of this year, along with Eileen Watson, new to our membership but not to the game.
Doris’s round was consistently excellent, 13 pars and the remaining five holes just one over par. Barbara Caramelli in her best game was only one stroke behind at 61. Joan McNally also scored her season lowest, 65, just ahead of Terry Gearity’s 66 and Nancy Heffernan’s 67. Mildred Duffy and Annette Deschler were delighted with their finest rounds, 68, which was also the score for Barbara O’Brien and Eileen Watson. Peggy Hurley, Muriel Hellreigel and Mildred Seligman finished at 69.
Joan Cawley, another happy golfer, had her best day so far, shooting 70 along with Pat Disch. Then Mildred Murphy in her season’s best came in at 72. Peggy Ansbro was next at 73 followed by Tina Spina, Anne Ross and Helen McDonald, 74, and Helen Currlin, Pat Powers and Nancy Garito at her lowest, 75. Sally Fitzpatrick, Marge Driscoll, and Marge O’Leary made their rounds at 76, Dorothy Chandler and Anne Dowling did their best, a 77, and we end with Marie Alleva, Vera Lynch and Kay Miller (her best, too) at 78. Although Anne Duffiay did not make the list, she was THIS CLOSE playing her best game since joining Par Tee, finishing at 81.
There were a flock of birdies last Thursday, two of them chip-ins as Mildred Seligman started her game with one of the first hole. Barbara Caramelli’s came on five, followed by two regular birdies on seven and 11. Eileen Watson got her membership off to a good start with two, on 11 and 14. The remaining birdies were made by Annette Deschler on three and Joan McNally on 10. Marge Driscoll’s might have been memorable though she couldn’t recall on which hole.
Mildred Seligman’s second chip-in was made on four, mine came on eight, Mary Sullivan’s on 12 and Marie Alleva’s on 17. Peggy Honahan’s chip-in on 12 earned praise but not a pay-off since she forgot to put into the "pot".
Lil Keim "joined" us at the Apre’s golf lunch/meeting in the Catholic Club and she hopes to get back on the course as soon as her knee problems subside. Sign-ups were started for the July 8 "Guys and Dolls" tournament. The meeting’s 55 winners each week seem to follow a pattern since once again it went to one of the workers. This time it was co-chair Joan McNally.
And speaking of workers, Barbara O’Brien wants to recognize members who have helped her to keep Par Tee running smoothly this year. Anne Dowling, Kay Miller, Peggy Ansbro, Mary Sullivan, Eileen Klein, Mildred Murphy, Pat Disch and Bernice Carroll all played a part. She is also very appreciative of Timmy Murphy’s handling the lunch details at the Catholic Club.
Millie Donnelly, Vera Lynch, Mary Sullivan and I have been pretty busy rehearsing for the parish show scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 25 and 26. And we hope the rest of the Par Tee membership will be out there in the audience cheering us on.
