Golf League Outing ~ Greenbriar ~ October 8, 2019

Blake Critzas

What a great Rotary golf outing at Greenbriar Hills Country Club!  If you missed Tuesday’s outing, well you missed another one of the best ones we’ve had all year!! Once again Mother Nature cooperated and it was a beautiful day, not too hot or cold and Sunshine all day long, Perfect!  The golf course was in excellent shape and the greens were FAST, FAST which made it difficult to score well, but even with that it’s always a pleasure to play. I believe the food was to everyone’s liking, well prepared and delicious. Starting with a dinner salad, Chicken Piccata, with Angel Hair Pasta and broccoli, and we topped it off with a very tasty Chocolate Cake, yes, all good to the last bite!  Wow it really was an excellent golf day and dinner event to end the Rotary Golf Season!   

A big thanks goes out to Mr. Wicks for setting up our groups, handicaps, scoring and communication with the multiple venues.  Also thank you Mr. Poe for dealing with all the banking and sorting out our financial responsibilities.  Kent Steinbrueck and I will still be handling next year’s outing’s along with our third new President Terry Werner.  Matt Weiss will be stepping down from the office and is looking forward to just enjoying the 2020 season, thank you for all you do and have done!

Thanks to everyone that was able to join the Rotary Golf League this year and especially to all the volunteers.  I’ve been playing golf with our Rotary group for 26 years now and have to say I hope to play 26 more! It’s hard to beat dining and playing at some of the best golf club’s in St. Louis.  These are outstanding courses and you enjoy it all with some of the greatest people you ever want to meet!  Join us next season for the experience!     

Already looking forward to the new season, so happy Rotating until then……
