June 12th,2017  Navesink Country Club

Nearly 100 participants in this year’s Parker golf outing were greeted with a warm, sunny day. The Navesink links were beautifully groomed and a pleasure to play. Following the golf portion of the event, our players were treated with cocktails, a sumptuous buffet dinner, and a bounty of glorious prizes. Prizes included a gift card for Lusty Lobster in Highlands, plus golf packages at area clubs, such as Navesink, Manasquan River, and Eagle Oaks, as well as two foursomes at Due Process.

Topping the field in the special events competition were Sue Dahabsu and Alex Papcavase with long drives, both monster shots. Closest to the line awards were garnered by Nancy DelPriore for the women, and Chris Tamayo for the men. The sharpshooting Petillo family won the closest to the hole awards with Gina at 30’ and Robert at 13’ 1”. Ed Reitzel captured the putting contest prize.

The team competition was hotly contested. The mixed team crown went to Carol Graham, Danielle Graham-Lyons, Drew Lyons, and Peter Graham. Peter, of Navesink Wealth Management, along with John Horl, Parker’s Treasurer and former Vice President, were this year’s honorees.
