Brick Landing Fall Couples Trip
The 11th Annual Fall Couples Golf Trip took place on September 30 to October 2 and a good time was had by all. The site this year was Pinehurst. The group stayed at Talamore and played golf at Mid South, Long Leaf and Talamore golf courses. Dinners took place at Squires Pub in Aberdeen and Beefeaters in Southern Pines.
The group has been gathering for an annual fall golf fest since 2003. Destinations have been Charleston, Wyboo Plantation, and Pinehurst.
The format for the first day and the third day was by points (modified stableford) with both individual and team prizes. In the middle day of competition, the ladies played together and the men played together in a captain’s choice.
The overall event was a “battle of the sexes” with points accumulated by both the men’s and women’s teams. This year the women won!
Attending were Tom & Linda Bianco, Elsa & Gene Bonstein, Bob & Sharon Brown, Cal & Dale Calhoon, Billy and B.G. Daniel, Mike and Sharon Deutsch, Chuck and Mary Dixon, George & Irene Dowdy, Rick and Billie Ellwanger (from Farmstead/Meadowlands) , Bonnie & Dick Giehl, Buddy Hollowell & Martha Cullen, Ralph & Jackie McLean.
Ralph McLean brought his guitar and provided entertainment on Tuesday evening singing both his own compositions and country classics. Thanks, Ralph!
Bonnie & Dick Giehl were the scorekeepers and tournament chairs for the trip. Thanks for all your hard work.
