Par Tee Golf News: Guys And Dolls Tournament
I think the 70 golfers that played in the Guys and Dolls Tournament last Thursday would call this a misnomer. These hardy souls braved the heat and humidity to play the 18 holes in Riis Park.
The camaraderie, laughter, sportsmanship, luncheon and golf are all part of this wonderful day! Many thanks go to Betty Monahan and Marilyn Higgins for all their efforts in making this day such a success.
The decorations and table arrangements were awesome and included gifts for all the entrants. And the prizes and the raffle items were numerous and useful. And the joke telling added to the hilarity of the day. The golf quiz for “women only” was informative and enjoyed by all! The luncheon was catered by Franny Jamin and, as usual, was delicious and well presented and enjoyed by 74 guests. Doris Neimeth managed to take photos of all the groups and will add these to her Par Tee album.
Thank you, Doris!!
AND THE WINNERS WERE: Would you believe that four groups tied for first place with a score of 51!! The winning foursomes were: Pam and Danny Armour, Joan and Frank Mc- Nally, Jr.; Maureen and Neil Wilson, Charles and Joanna Beck; Joe Purtell, Joan Fallon, Al and Doris Neimeth; Betty and Bernie Monahan, Marilyn Higgins and Buddy O’Neill.
Congratulations to all on a well played game! Closest to the pin honors for the men belongs to Jim McEnaney with a score of nineteen feet and one inch. For the women the winner was Doris Neimeth who landed four feet and 13 inches from the cup. And the winner of the Peggy Wheeler 50/50 was Gerry Hunt.
An ardent golfer dies and finds himself at the pearly gates. St. Peter tells the man he has lived an exemplary life and that he can go right in. The man asks, “St. Peter, where is the golf course?” “I’m terribly sorry,” replies St. Peter, “but that’s one thing we don’t have here.” The man turns and decides that he will see if the situation is any better in hell. On the road to hell, he is greeted by the devil who has already heard of the golfer’s rejection of heaven.
“This way, sir,” says the devil, “the finest tournament-quality 18 holes you are likely to find this side of Augusta, Georgia.” The golfer looks around and agrees that it is the finest course he has eve7r seen and decides he’d rather spend eternity there than in heaven, so he signs up for the full package.
“So,” he says to the devil, “why don’t you go get me some clubs and balls and I’ll have the game of my after-life.” “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t have any.” “What?” says the man? “No balls or clubs for a fine course like this?” “No, sir,” says the devil fiendishly, “that’s the hell of it.”
God Bless. Have a great week!!
