The Summer Return of Par Tee Golf News

By Peg Ansbro

"There are two things you can do with your head down- - play golf and pray," -Lee Trevino.

The Par Tees now have a shotgun start thanks to the efforts of our copresidents Sheila Schaberick and Alice Mateos. They would like to thank the manager of the golf course, Anthony Esposito, for his cooperation and expertise.

The clinic held on June 5th at the Brooklyn Golf Center on Flatbush Avenue was well attended, and each participant was very pleased with the instruction, courtesy and patience of all the instructors. We returned to the Catholic Club and had a wonderful fare of bagels, pastry and coffee. Many thanks go to Margaret Danbury, who made all the arrangements.

Our winner with the lowest score of 68 was Marie Campbell. She was followed by Dolores McAleer with a 69. Scoring in the seventies were: Nancy Heffernan (71), Pat Lunny, Lorraine Pierson and Barbara Caramelli (74), Pat Livingston and Ruth Gallligan (75), Marilyn Danese (76), Alice Mateos and Pat Kelly (78), and with 79 were Kay Miller, Mary McDermott amd Marge O'Leary.

Chip-ins is credited to Betty Monaghan and Ruth Galligan. Chip-in Birds were scored by Joan Williams, Dotty Dunne, Marie Campbell and Nancy Tutolo. Pat Kelly finished with two chip-in birds. Marilyn Danese and Chris Brunner finished with a chip-in bird and a birdie. Lil Hanratty had a bird on #11.

Congratulations to Nancy Tutolo, who was closest to the pin on number 18. The winner of the 50/50 was Kay Miller.

Welcome to our two new members, Pat Lunny and Joan Hart. We are so happy that they are joining us and we look forward to having many more ladies join us. There is no waiting period... just give a call to Sheila (945-5231) or Alice (945-1066) and come out to Riis Park on Thursday mornings for a fun game of golf with no pressure!!!

Mary and Paddy Sullivan had their son, Patrick, memorialized with a street named in his honor. The street is on the corner of 79 Street and 4th Avenue in Bay Ridge. The sign reads: "Patrick Sullivan 9/11 Memorial Way". The family lived in that neighborhood for many years. Patrick's brother, Gerard, who is currently running for State Assembly in the Rockaways, was instrumental in getting the dedication accomplished.

The Par Tees mourn the loss of Muriel Hellriegel. Muriel was an original member of the group, which began 26 years ago. Muriel was a lovely, intelligent, caring and loving lad. The world will miss her. Condolences go to her four daughters Nancy, Diane, Susan and Barbara and grandson, Eric.

LAW OF GOLF: The last three holes of a round will automatically adjust your score to what it really should be. And remember the words of Lee Trevino: "If you're caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron."

God Bless. Have a great week!!!
