Men’s Member-Guest Invitational draws nearly 100 golfers

March 19, 2012

Competition was fierce at the latest Men’s Member-Guest Invitational at Old Palm Golf Club, but you’d never know it because everyone was having so much fun. The festivities began with a day of practice rounds, cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres, and a spectacular stag dinner. The atmosphere was light and lively, as nearly 100 competitors mingled and welcomed guests, many of them from other clubs in the Palm Beaches. Over the next two days, it was nonstop action. Trick shot artist Dan Boever dazzled the crowd, juicy steaks sizzled on the grill, tropical smoothies were whipped up in blenders and, of course, a lot of 9-hole matches were played on Old Palm’s Raymond Floyd-designed golf course. One of the members even aced the 15th hole. The competition came to a close on Saturday evening with a lavish awards dinner, where the winners in each flight were given beautiful Waterford Crystal trophies. The top prize was awarded to a team of retired military colonels, Old Palm member Colonel Underwood and his guest, Colonel Schwanda.
