RSVP: Fore St. Clement’s

By Trina Lucas | Entertainment

McGregor Links Country Club was the site of last Saturday’s 15th Annual St. Clement’s Golf Classic to benefit the regional Catholic school. More than 100 golfers grabbed box lunches provided by Hannaford before taking turns to win a 40-inch flat-screen television in the putting contest. Dan Munn won, but others seen trying were Fr. Paul Borowski, Shawn Voland, Mike Naughton, Jeff Koppi, Keith Manuel, Ray Bryan, Chris Zieker, Dan Warren, Ed Spickler, Anne Conklin, Jon Tellstone and John Fuller.

After a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m., Principal Jane Kromm witnessed each golfer attempt to sink a hole-in-one for the featured car from New Country Toyota. Some came close, but none made it. Closest-to-the-pin prizes on that hole and others went to Kyle Kinowski, John Scherer and Joe DiVivo. 

Everyone enjoyed a fun day on the links, followed by a lively social at the club as spouses and friends joined the golfers for dinner. John Rogan of Saratoga Eagle rallied the crowd, raising bids for several items in the live auction, including private parties at Druthers and the Saratoga City Tavern. Among the winners were John and Judi McSwieney, claiming an in-home performance by acoustic guitarist Mike Perkins; Shirl Penney, bidding highest on golf for four at Saratoga National Golf Club; and event chair Rick McGinn, who will be taking over a box at the Times Union Center for an upcoming Siena basketball game, thanks to Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. 

The tournament itself was won by the low grossing team of Bob Burke, Kyle Burke, Jim Mitchell and John Scherer. Darryl Leggieri and Jen Iannotti boasted the longest drives. 

This year’s Golf Classic net more than any before thanks to the leadership of longtime committee member McGinn and many generous donors, including Verizon, The Flaherty Family Foundation, Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, Knights of Columbus, High Rock Realty, Raymond James, and the Bielefeld and Kakaty Families.
