Breezy Point Par-Tee News

by Carolyn Bennett

Pam Slams on 14th. There was a hole-in-one by Pam Armour last Thursday on 14, the third longest in the Riis Park course, 112 yards. She made that perfect drive and knew the ball had landed on the green but couldn’t follow it further. The others in the foursome, Peg Hurley, Eileen Klein, and Sally Fitzpatrick, weren’t watching, so they proceeded on the fairway and played their balls onto the green. When Pam couldn’t find her ball anywhere she pulled the flag out of the hole and out popped her ball. It was a startling discovery, and since no one really experienced the excitement of seeing the ball drop into the cup, it was suggested she do it again. Pam wisely said she’d take it sight unseen.

Several years ago Mary O’Rourke aced that hole but since it wasn’t during an official Par Tee game she received glory but no award. The last hole-in-one was made in May ’97 by Peg Hurley on 2.

Forty-seven members came out to play last week and were relieved to keep their cool with the comfortable breeze. Pam’s 61 (tying her earlier score) secured her number one spot for the day, Eileen Watson was next at 64, Pat Wheeler 65. Pat Disch had her lowest score so far, 66, along with Barbara O’Brien and Peggy Ansbro. Doris Neimeth and Nancy Heffernan followed at 67, then Evelyn Gannon and Lynn Canavan at 69.

Anne Prior and Peg Hurley scored 71, Terry Gearity, Mildred Murphy and Muriel Hellreigel 72, and Dottie Dunne 73. Finishing at 74 were Tess Kearney, Lil Keim, Anne Ross, Joan Cawley and Sally Fitzpatrick, followed by Mildred Seligman and Pat Powers at 76. Mary O’ Rourke and Marge O’Leary shot 77, Peggy Joyce and Helen McDonald 78, then Kay Hanratty and Luella Clark (her best) end the list with 79.

Six chip-in birdies graced the games: Doris Neimeth with two, on 5 and 18, Pam Armour on 2, Joan Cawley on 7, Dottie Dunne on 17, and Pat Powers on 18. Regular chip-ins were made by Anne Prior on 3, Pat Wheeler on 4, Pat Disch and Mildred Murphy on 10, Luella Clark on 16, Emily Knox on 17, and Marge O’Leary on 18, Anne Dowling and Peg Hurley started their games with regular birdies on the first hole, Roz Borelli, Anne Ross and Sally Fitzpatrick on 2, Eileen Watson on 9 and Terry Gearity on 12.

Back at the Catholic Club following the game, Pam was cheered. So she spread additional cheer by announcing to the players "The drinks are on me!"
