Breezy Point Par-Tee News
Last Thursday’s Guys and Dolls Tournament was a blend of skill and fun on an absolutely perfect day. After nearly a week of beastly hot, humid weather, the temperature dropped and a breeze picked up for the 79 men and women who joined in the scramble play. Taking over the entire course, each of the 20 foursomes played best ball which moved the action quickly and smoothly. Joan McNally and Barbara O’Brien with their willing committee managed the event masterfully.
Peggy Ansbro, Artie Mayrose, Mary O’Rourke and Joe Foftus were the winning foursome with the astounding low score of 45, nine below par. They made an eagle, eight birdies and all the rest were pars. Unbeatable. Three other foursomes were runner-ups at 49: Dottie and Bob Chandler, Nancy and Jerry Heffernan; Mildred and Tim Murphy, Joan and Larry Cawley; Pat and Jim Wheeler, Peg Hurley and Pat Gaffney.
The rest of the foursomes turned in score cards they could be proud of:
Barbara and John Caramelli, Tina Spina and Bill Mullaly: 51.
Kay and Joe Miller, Anne and Jim Dowling: 52.
Muriel and Ed Hellreigel, Carolyn Bennett and Tom Crawford: 53.
Tess and Tom Kearney, Helen and Bill McDonald: 53.
Anne and Bob Ross, Pat Powers and Dom Auditore: 55.
Ethel Savarese, Don Joyce and Tom Haugh: 57.
Nancy Garito, Anne Dufficy, Evelyn Gannon, Anne Lane: 60.
Marie Morreale, MaryEllen Pfaff, Marie Alleva, Anne Amadeo: 63.
Eileen Watson, Bob Zelek, Don Guiney, Helen Currlin: 51.
Peggy and John Honahan, Gloria and Frank Tropea: 52.
Doris and Al Neimeth, Pat and George Disch: 53.
Joan McNally, Barb O’Brien, Millie Duffy, Marge O’Leary: 54.
Millie Donnelly, P.J. O’Rourke, Vera Lynch, John Gavin: 55.
Marge and Tom Manzo, Marge and Myles Driscoll: 57.
Theresa and Joe Bean, Lil Keim, Bob Casserio: 61.
Anne Prior, Luella Clark, Dottie Dunne, Annette Deschler: 66.
First place prizes plus applause were given to the winning foursome, Ansbro, O’Rourke, Mayrose, and Loftus, during the luncheon at the Catholic Club following the game. Awards were also presented to the man and woman whose tee shot landed closest to the pin, to John Caramelli on 10, and Barbara O’Brien on 17. Tina Spina had a noteworthy, though not prizeworthy, round. She made up for that, however, by winning not only the top split club cash award, but the second place as well. That left the third place amount for Eileen Watson…whom I have been calling Emily since the season began. I now stand corrected. Eileen Watson.
We were happy to see Guy Clark at the luncheon. He’s been missed at the golf course for the past two years. Peggy Joyce was also not in the tournament, but touring Ireland with her family instead. And speaking of Ireland, right after playing Guys and Dolls, Peggy and John Honahan were on their right way to the Emerald Isle. I wonder if golf is on their agenda there.
