Two Rivers Country Club member Mike McDonald finished second in the latest Society of Seniors Championship (SOS) held at The Landings in Georgia October 27-29. Allan Small birdied the last hole to beat Mike by one shot in the John Owen Super Senior division (65+). The third place finisher was 7 strokes behind Mike. In his final round Mike was one under par and finished the three rounds of the competition at 217. This was an outstanding accomplishment given the quality of the field.Founded in 1983, the Society of Seniors is home to the finest senior amateur golfers in the world. SOS tournaments are played at scratch and provide strong competition on the finest courses. The 916 members of the SOS include every living U.S. Senior Amateur Champion, numerous Walker Cup players and captains, and former U.S. Amateur, U.S. Mid-Amateur, British Amateur and British Senior Amateur Champions.
It was a beautiful day yesterday at Keswick Golf Club and Member Dave Pulk and his partner defended their title.
Today begins this year’s TRCC Men’s Member-Guest Classic, the premier tournament at the Club. The 42-team field is set, the course is in outstanding shape and it will be a great weekend of fun and spirited competition. There’s a welcome cocktail reception and stag dinner to kick-off the event. Tournament play consists of five nine-hole matches by flights over Friday and Saturday. It all culminates in a gala dinner and awards Saturday evening with spouses.
Two weeks ago we hosted the 13th Senior State Open of Virginia, one of the state’s biggest and most important tournaments of the year. Bob Heintz, Middle Atlantic PGA Entertainment Director, praised Chris Warring and his team for their leadership and Superintendent Brent Graham and staff for the great course condition. The kudos included the food and beverage folks for enjoyable meals over the two days.
Buck Brittain made a 48-foot birdie on 17 and became the event’srepeat champion. Our own Dave Pulk came in fourth.
One of our own is saying farewell for now. Two Rivers Country Club staff member Marin Warring has been more than a familiar face here over the last 10 years. Members have watched Marin’s growth and personal service beginning as an Outside Service Attendant and rising to Assistant Golf Professional. Along the way, she’s been a wonderful connection for our children who enjoyed the PGA Junior League, which Marin conducted.
Over the years, she was also the Golf Team Captain and Sportsmanship Award winner at Lafayette High School. Following that, she led as the Golf Team Captain throughout her four years at Bridgewater College including competing in the D3 National Championship.
Marin learned to play golf at age 10 from her father, Chris Warring, Head Golf Professional at Two Rivers. They share a passion for golf and Chris says, “I am proud of Marin learning all the business, golf and people skills to advance to her new position.”
Join us in congratulating Marin on becoming Assistant Golf Professional at Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville. Members will miss Marin’s smile, positive attitude and stylish influence on our Pro Shop merchandise.
