This year’s Oscars presentation will take place February 22, and as a prelude Old Palm Golf Club recently held a Member Guest Invitational golf tournament for ladies. This was the 10th annual event commemorating the Academy Awards, and as always the Better Ball for Partners event was played on Old Palm’s spectacular Raymond Floyd-designed golf course. The ladies were invited to dress as their favorite actress on the red carpet or as an Oscar-nominated movie character for the pre-event party at the Club. While the paparazzi were on hand for the party and Friday’s tournament, fortunately no cameras snapped mid-swing. As expected, the ladies’ costumes were highly creative tributes to the Oscar nominees. Fortunately, no one looked like they had just walked 1,000 miles like Reese Witherspoon in “Wild,” became a witch like Meryl Streep in “Into the Woods” or grew a beard to look like Mark Ruffalo in “Foxcatcher.” In other words, everyone had a great time.
