Breezy Point Par-Tee News
The reporting staff of the Par-Tee ladies really did a great job of collecting information for this article. Thank you!
I was unable to golf Thursday as granddaughter, Adriane Bringe, a former Rockaway-ite, graduated from Rutgers University. Nothing, including golf, could keep us from attending such a special event. Congratulations Adriane, and may your future be always as happy as that day!
We’re gradually being joined by new and old members of the club. This week Marie Alleva played, as well as Lillien Hanratty and Marie Monreale. Welcome back, ladies! One of our new players this season was headliner of the week – Janis Murphy with a 67 and a chip-in birdie to boot. Breathing down her neck was long-time member Lil Keim, with a 69. Kudos to both of you
Two of our veteran players edged up right behind… Peg Hurley and Marge O’Leary (one of our new leaders) with a 70. Inez Moriarty, Evelyn Gannon, Evelyn McDonald and Annette Dreschler all had 72. Mary Sullivan hit the 70’s with a 74, as did Vera Lynch, Anne Prior and Pat Powers who finished up with 75. Dorothy Dunne and Cathy Benoit scored 76. Barbara O’Brien and Mildred Murphy scored 77. Tina Spina and Eileen Klein each ended with a 78. Evie McVeigh scored a 79 on the day. Great going, gals, and keep up the good play.
Peg Hurley was birdie champ of the day, scoring the 1st and 12th holes. Anne Dufficy had one on the 1st hole and Inez Moriarty not only birdied the 12th, but also chipped-in on the 10th. (Apologies to Inez for omitting her name in the first column of the season, when she scored a 75 on her first day out and keeps lowering her score.) Dorothy Dunne joined the chip-in players with one on the 14th hole. Helen McDonald had one on the 3rd, Marie Alleva had one on the 17th, and Sally Fitzpatrick had one on the 8th. The only chip-in birdie was scored by Janis Murphy on the 5th. Since we were back to our chip-in pot, I can hear those coins clinking in all your pockets. Be sure you don’t let all that gold burn holes there!
Back at the Catholic Club after the game, bagels, rolls and coffee were a big hit. We’re looking forward to more of the same. Thanks to Myles Driscoll who was there instructing Frank Tropea and Bob Kimmeth in the set-up procedures. The ladies are indeed fortunate to have your assistance, and we are all very grateful.
As a final reminder – the Coffee-Poetry Hour is in honor of Carolyn Bennett this month. It will be held after the 10 o’clock mass on May 27 in St. Edmund’s Hall. Don’t miss it… it’s an hour to be remembered, demonstrating the humor, sensitivity and hidden talents of our Breezy Point neighbors.
