The month of June is a great month for golf in New England and Lake Kezar Country Club has been the venue for some wonderful events. It started with the 1st Annual Lovell Library Tournament. I would have to say that Lynn Hurd orchestrated a spectacular fundraiser for the Library. The tournament was very well run and everyone that played in it was impressed.
The second fundraiser of the season was the Jim Hadlock Scholarship Fund Tournament. For those of you that may not have heard, LKCC has set up an annual scholarship at Fryeburg Academy for a graduating senior in memory of Jim Hadlock. Jim worked at our course for many years and was well known in many “golf circles” all over the State. What you may not have known is that Jim was a gifted athlete and student at FA. He earned 12 Varsity letters and was a proud member of the National Honor Society. This yearly scholarship of $2500 will certainly help a graduating senior towards whatever goals they set for themselves. My sincere gratitude to all that came out to support.
Today I played in the Conway Rec tournament. It is always very organized and well run. They had their largest field to date (17 groups) and hopefully raised a lot of money.
I wrote many years ago that the golf world is still waiting for a player to take the place of Tiger. Well it seems like that is not going to happen. There are so many young talented golfers that the leader board often looks like a Nike tour roster. It was great to see Bubba Watson win for the 3rd time this year at his favorite tournament, The Travelers. The summer is here and it’s time to go golfing. Thank you for your support of LKCC and the worthy organizations that flood our course with early season golfers.
