Breezy Point Par-Tee News
Borrowing a phrase which starts a Sunday Liturgy, last week was Par Tee’s Tenth Thursday in Extraordinary time. It brought out 48 members, our largest group for the season 2000.
Top honors were shared by two players who have been in the number one spot one or more times this year. Both Pam Armour and Barbara Caramelli completed their rounds at 60, a season low for each of them. Nancy Heffernan and Peggy Ansbro were next at 66, followed by Barbara O’Brien and Joan McNally at 67, Terry Grearity 68, and Helen McDonald and Doris Neimeth (her lowest) at 69.
Bernice Carroll had her best game, a 70, which was also the score for Pat Disch and Peggy Hurley. Pat Wheeler finished at 71, then Muriel Hellreigel (her best), and a new member, Janice Murphy, scored 72. Inez Moriarity played her best so far, a 73, as did Mildred Seligman, and Marge O’ Leary shot a 74. Anne Prior, Tess Kearney and Marion Lynch (her lowest) came in with 75, Dorothy Chandler and Pat Powers followed with a spirited 76. Anne Ross made her round at 77, and Mildred Murphy, Kay Miller, Mary O’Rourke and another new member, Bunny Ganun, end this low scorers list at 79.
Three chip-in birdies sparked last week’s game. Peggy Ansbro started of with one on the first hole, Joan McNally made hers on two and Pat Disch made her skillful shot on seven. Regular birdies were made by Terry Gearity and Barbara Caramelli on seven and Barbara O’Brien on 18. Regular chip-ins were skillfully executed by Bunny Ganun and Doris Neimeth on 10 and Bernice Carroll on 15.
At the lunch/meeting Bunny Ganun and Janice Murphy were welcomed, new to Par Tee membership, but definitely not new to the game. Peggy Hurley returned to the fold, following an extended vacation in Ireland. And now Kate Hanratty is taking her turn visiting the Emerald Isle. It seems to be the place to go for a number of our members.
Our Guys and Dolls Tournament scheduled for Thursday, July 27 has a shot-gun start and requires 72 players. Brunch follows at the Catholic Club. Total cost is $20 per person. See Peggy Ansbro. The Hunterdon Playhouse outing planned for later this month has been cancelled.
I was deeply touched to learn that the Catholic Club golfers have scheduled a George Bennett Memorial Tournament on Wednesday, July 19, at the Riis Park course. Playing with the golfers was an important part of my husband’s life in retirement, and this is a fitting way to remember him. The bench on the first hole will be dedicated that morning in memory of all the deceased Catholic Club golfers.
