This is the season of traditions and Harbor Hills has a few traditions of its’ own. Twenty-five years ago, Harbor Hill’s premier golf event, the Sider Cup, was created. The October tournament brings together our golfing community to enjoy the 10-day event. This year, the captain of the Blue team was Bob Neese and the Red team captain was Dave DeCoster. Their respective assistant captains were Mike Reyome and Joe Pulsone.
Sixty-four players participated, thirty-two on each team. The Red Team scored 26 ½ points in the first two matches. On the final day, Red needed only 5 ½ points to retain the cup and that they did. Thirty-six competitive and exciting matches went down to the 17th and 18th holes. Congratulations to both teams for an exciting finish!
The annual Ladies Red/Blue Tournament has become an integral part of Sider Cup festivities. Blue team ladies won this year, beating the Red team by ten strokes. President Deb Markey, Vice President Wanda Kurka and Chairperson Becky Hanner along with LGA members, did a great job organizing the event. From the Captains Dinner to the Awards dinner and everything in between, the Sider Cup has become a lively tradition at Harbor Hills.
