Par Tee Golf News By Peg Ansbro
A good partner is one who’s always slightly worse than you.
The Guys and Dolls tournament was a huge success thanks to the efforts of the co-chair ladies: Helen Mele and Marie Heffernan. We were each warmly greeted with a gift as we entered. The food was catered by “Harbor Lights” and was delicious and plentiful.
The day itself was HOT but that didn’t stop the foursome of Danny and Pam Armour, Meg Feerick and Al Loyola from finishing with a 47 and, thereby, taking first place. Their score was so good, as was that of the second place finishers who scored 50 and included Jane and Charles Higgins, Maureen and Jerry Walsh. And third place belongs to the team of Clare and Dan Moran and Pat and Mike Burns.
Bragging rights go to the teams of MaryEllen and Al Hogan, Eileen Watson and Ed Deacy; Joan McNally, Joe Purtell, Doris and Al Neimeth. Closest to the pin on hole #7 was Dan Moran and on #9 the winner was Jane Donnelly Higgins. The 50/50 was won by Jerry Walsh. Mention must be made of the contributors for their gift certificates: Anthony Rodriquez of Brooklyn Golf Center, Country Heart Cooking, Sand Castle, Breezy Liquor, Breezy Hardware and Deirdre Maeve’s. Table prizes were contributed by Ridgewood Savings Bank and Joan Wilmarth.
And honorable mention goes to the young lady who patrolled the golf course offering an assortment of cold drinks. Again, many thanks go to Marie Heffernan and Helen Mele on chairing such a spectacular event! Congratulations to their committee that consisted of Kathleen Joyce and Jo Sullivan. And much gratitude is extended, also, to Maureen McGuire, Valerie Phillips-Jablons and Dick Mele for their valuable assistance.
There was some discussion as to whether we should return to the earlier tee time of 8:30 a.m. or stay with the 3:30. Please let our president, Jane Donnelly Higgins, know your thoughts on this subject.
Top signs you’re golfing too much:
1) When you pick up something off the floor, you have to lean on your putter.
2) The only number on your speed dial is 1-800 TEETIME.
3) You have your priorities in order: food, shelter, greens fees, job
4) You tell the lost motorist that the gas station is only a par 4 away on the left.
5) You’d like to take off your glove but hey, why bother?
6) Whenever you see a hole in the ground, you squat, squint and read the line.
7) You’re vaguely aware of living with a woman, allegedly your wife.
8) You ask the shopper ahead in the checkout line if you can play through.
9) Before you pick up the salt shaker, you mark its position with a dime.
Best wishes go to Coach Don Kent as he recovers from recent surgery. He’s a man who works hard, cares deeply, and gives his best for the people in his life … hope he always knows how much that means to all those whose lives he touches.
God Bless. Have a great week.
