Cost is $25, payable to Par Tee Golf, and includes salad,pasta, entre, dessert, unlimited coffee (cappacino, expresso) and soda.
Choice of entre includes: chicken francese, baked salmon or NY shell steak. Bring your check and choice of entre to the golf course on August 26th and give either to Marilyn Higgins or Betty Monahan.
And finally, here’s a little slice of golf history that you might enjoy. Why do golf courses have 18 holes—not 20, or 10 or an even dozen?
During a disscussion among the club’s membership board at St. Andrews in 1858, a senior member pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of scotch. By limiting himself to only one shot of Scotch per hole, the Scot figured a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out. Maybe that is what I need to improve my game!!!
God love you!!
