After the Party...

   Thank you to all Club Members and Guests who attended the 
36th Annual 2019 President's Ball.  By all accounts it was a great
  
success!  Approximately 200 attendees enjoyed a full evening.

The Clubhouse 5 "Ballroom" was lavishly decorated from floor 
to ceiling by volunteers.  Upon arriving guests made their way to 
the entrance under
clouds of festive lights, then greeted at the 
front door
by Club officials (& spouses) John & Annette Soule 
along with Paul Santoro and Pat Thatcher. 
Each arriving lady
guest was presented with a very long stem red rose.  Upon 
entering the main ballroom each couple had their photograph 
taken by our resident professional photographer Peter Battin.  
These photos will be available in the near future via a link on 
this website.


Guests then enjoyed a full hosted open bar, a great sounding 
orchestra and a fantastic complete dinner, preceded by 
circulating appetizers, all catered by Jolanda's Catering. 
Bottled 
wines were provided at each table for the rest of the evening. 
The
dance floor was quite busy for most of the evening before
and 
after dinner.  Who knew golfers could dance?  Actually there
were 
some real dancers there who happened to also play golf.  

After dinner Board Officers made presentations to major 
tournament winners from 2018, along with commendations to 
individuals for specific accomplishments furthering the success 
of the men's club .

You can see the photos from the Ball HERE.

the 2018 VILLAGE CUP


The Annual 27 hole Village Cup was held Nov 21st at LWGC.  
This team competition pitted an International team comprised 
of non-USA born players against the hometown USA born 
players in a Ryder Cup like match play event
.


The first 9 holes played as a "Foursome" with 2-man teams facing 
off in an alternate shot format; cumulative low net score wins the 
match (team gets 1 pt.).  The second 9 holes played as a "Four Ball" 
match with each hole's best net team score winning that hole: match 
win =1 pt.  The final 9 holes are
played as two Individual matches - 
each match winner scores 1 pt.  


The cumulative scores for each 20 man team are tallied to determine 
the winner of "the Village Cup".  This year the USA
team bested the International team to win back the Village Cup Trophy... 
Congratulations Team USA. 
Following the end
of play both teams 
joined together to enjoy a buffet lunch
prepared at Tony's Club 19.

2017 Annual Derby - 38 Players - 19 Teams
The November Annual Derby Largest in 2017
The Derby was a big success in November with 19 teams teeing off for an exciting time for all.  For the golfers who take part 
most say it is one of the best Men's Club events.  The format is simple, high handicappers are paired with low ones to form two 
man teams.  Then it's alternate shot until the ball is holed.  Depending upon the number of teams involved, at least one team 
is eliminated on each hole until the last team standing.

   

The winning team for the last Derby of 2017 is:

Sam Murad and Dennis Bourdreau
