Brothers, based on the feedback, the first annual Hilton Head Island Presidents Cup was a great success! 14 Brothers, 8 spouses/significant others, and a few special friends attended. For those of you who came, you know what a great weekend it was. For those that couldn’t attend please plan on coming next year.
The weekend started Thursday evening with a welcome gathering at the Tiki Hut on the beach. As Bob Jones said “cocktails with good friends at the beach, 70 degree weather, what’s not to like?”
Friday golf was a scramble format at Dolphin Head Golf Club. Closest to the pin, longest drive, and first and second place winning team prizes were awarded. We followed golf in the evening with an informal gathering at Reilleys South, a local outdoor watering hole.
Saturday golf was medal play, modified stableford scoring format at Atlantic Dunes, a newly redesigned and just opened course by Davis Love III. Closest to the pin and longest drive prizes were awarded. Tim Thurin won the Presidents Cup. As Tim said “what a wonderful weekend! My trophy has a place on my front porch with a huge spotlight focused on it. Drivers by were honking all night long!”
Saturday evening we all gathered at Long Cove Club for cocktails, awards, and a farewell dinner.
As Jack Schrader recapped the weekend ” Hilton Head lends itself to “spouse/significant other” participation. The golf and evenings were great…the evenings really seemed intimate allowing for good conversation with everyone.” Rich (Whitey) Winkler said “Cheryl and I had a ball…and we will be back next year!” Danny Perugini, who flew in from California said “one of the best weekends ever!” And John Geraghty summed it up best “truly outstanding, and we get to save the DTN bail money for another time! It’s events like this that brings out the uniqueness of being a Brother of DTN.”
For next year, we are targeting the second annual Hilton Head Island Presidents Cup for October 26 through October 29, 2017 (one weekend earlier than this year). Please mark your calendars. Additional details to come in the new year.
The DTN Hilton Head Presidents (Ken Fischer, Dick Kramer, Rich Miskewicz, Jack Schrader and Joe Sommers) wish everyone the best for the holiday season! How ‘Bout Them Delts!
