Augusta National Golf Club is the home of golf’s first major tournament, The Masters. The Champions Dinner, the Par Three Challenge and the Green Jacket ceremony are traditional events. The Green Jacket is awarded to the champion by the previous year’s winner. The winner keeps his jacket at home for one year. After that, it is kept at the club and only worn by the recipient for special events.
The spirit of the Masters is alive and well at Harbor Hills. Recently, Harbor Hills MGA golf members competed in the Member-Member Stroke play tournament. First place in four flights were won by (Flight 1)-Chape Chapin and Don Winefordner; (Flight 2)-Bill Dashiells and Larry Skoch; (Flight 3)-Jack Wright and Shad Shadoin; (Flight 4)- Joe Cervoni and Cliff Murphy.
The Harbor Hills 4-Man tournament was next. Congrats to the First Place winners Ron Nisun, Mike Reyome, Jim Wohrley and John Nelson. The Member-Member Match play tournament will be played on April 20, 22 and 24.
Our Ladies Swingin 9’ers had their Sadie Hawkins tournament last month. Congrats to first place winners Bob and Lorraine Kasse and Fred Saxine and Bridget Templeton. A fun time was had by all! Congrats as well to flight winners Diane Raymond, Carol Langan and Carol Ryan who grabbed winning scores in the 9’ers Ringers Tournament.
The late professional golfer Payne Stewart has said, “In the end, it’s still a game of golf. At the end of the day, if you can’t shake hands with your opponents and still be friends, then you missed the point.”
Wishing all our friends and family a meaningful Passover, a memorable Easter and a season filled with good health and happiness.
