Successful Golf Fore Red Day!
Update: Golf Fore Red will be writing a check in excess of $6000 to the American Heart Association, with all the money raised by the golf tourney. Nice job, ladies!
Sunshine, blue skies, great course. Talk about a successful Golf Fore Red tournament for the American Heart Association today at Trilogy at Redmond Ridge. Picture perfect weather, the course was in terrific shape, great people, and did I mention the weather? We couldn’t have ordered up any better weather. Sunshine and 85 degrees.
My Foursome. I had a great foursome put together by event Chair Mary Robinson! Even though my own personal game was not quite up to par, Beth Harwood, Lise Northey and Suzy Heffron were terrific partners, and even I managed to come through on a couple of crucial shots. Beth was our strategist — where to use our mulligans and whose shot to play, I tried to hit where Lise did and even on a couple of drives – came only a foot or two away. (But that actually gives me more credit than I deserve). Suzy was our monster driver, and while we did play by the rules and use the required number of drives from each team member – on one hole, Suzy cut the corner and drove the ball like there was no tomorrow, racking up a 274 yard drive!! The tourney low score was a 61, while we came in with a very respectable 64.
American Heart Association benefits. The best news, about 130 women had a great day on the course, had a lot of laughs, and a lot of fun, made new friends, and managed to do it for a great cause. I think this year’s Golf Fore Red tourney can be called a huge success!
