The first Men’s Night of the 2014 season, April 10, had a definite Masters theme as a ball skipping across the pond contest preceded a Par 3 course set up on the back nine. Also, the after play buffet included a Clifford Roberts favorite from the Augusta National clubhouse menu.
A total of 50 golfers came out on the balmy 70 degree evening. Mike Alyea won the event’s low score with a one over, 29. Closest to the Pin contests were taken by Steve Hurst and Mark Pratt. Skillful skippers of a golf ball across the putting green pond were: Andrew Fleenor, Dick Peck, Kevin Sears, and Marty Schmidt.
Chef Shane surprised the golfers adding peach cobbler and ice cream, an Augusta National favorite, to the buffet table.
The next Men’s Night is Thursday, May 8th, first night of the Tour Players Championship. Play gets under way at 6 pm, preceded by a 3-Putt contest on the putting green. Call the pro shop, 317-776-4653, to book your spot in our next men’s night!
