Good golf tourney for a good cause on Martha’s Vineyard


The 17th annual Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club golf tournament, to benefit of the Big Brothers-Big Sisters and the Boys and Girls Club, was played Sunday by 110 golfers at Farm Neck. It couldn’t have been a nicer day for the very nice event.

The winning team included Larry Stewart, Joann Mettler, Steve Mettler, Fred Buehler, and Chris Morris.

In second place were John Rancourt, Barry Lopes, Rene Mathieu, Jarda Kral, and Don Welty.

Don McGrath, Richie Yuen, Cal Fiori, Al Eville, and Rich Peterson came in third.

Driving nearest to the pin at the several par three holes were Jim Geary, 3’7″ at the fourth; Jane Barbini, 1’9.5″ at the sixth; Fred Buehler, 8’6″ on the ninth, and Jarda Kral, 3’10” on the fifteenth.

Nick Jerome sank the longest putt, a 33’6″ monster.

Beneficiaries expressed their appreciation and gratitude to all sponsors and especially to the Farm Neck Golf Club.
