Golf Tournament 2019: A Phun Success

From Joyce B., CalPHC Prez.
Sept. 16, 2019

After what seemed like a continuous rainy day after rainy day, for what seemed like the whole summer, we finally were blessed with sunshine and half decent temperatures on the day of our Annual Golf Tournament. Forty-eight golfers showed up in their finest “Parrot Head” clothing to help raise money for the A.L.S. Society.  Each signed up golfer was given a Registration Gift which included our very own "Calgary Parrot Head Club Golf Towels"!!! Thank you Cathy & Steve for organizing all of these handouts!

Calgary Parrothead Golf Tourney 2019There were all sorts of palm trees, margarita glasses, shark fins, tropical flowers, leis, flamingos, signs for Margaritaville and anything else that you could think of, when you think Jimmy Buffett, that covered golf carts. Everyone was in fine spirits!

We headed out to tee off in an orderly fashion, but once out there, there was no holding back with some antics! Some even dressed as Margaritaville Police officers and had a police siren that was sounded just as another person was about to drive the ball! Ahem...Ahem!!!

We had fantastic prizes that were gathered from local businesses as well as really great donations from a few brewing companies. The gifts were fantastic! A special thanks to Top’s Pizza & Steak House for picking up the tab for free beverages once out on the course and donating so many of the larger prizes.

Also, thank you to Pam for the wonderful Raffle prize items from Pottery Barn. As well, thank you to the many others for the donations, and especially Dustan who took the bull by the horns and worked diligently to make this event happen without a snag! We sure couldn’t have had such a successful tournament without all of them.

We played 9 holes with Best Ball. There were competitions for our golf tournament that were filled by many. The Best Scoring Group consisted of Wayne W, Pam W., Ryan W., and Ashley W, all who are long time Parrot Heads of our club. Congratulations go to all of them!
 Another important competition was the Best Dressed Parrot Head! Our own Parrot Head member, Donna G. won for the ladies, and Roy R. won the men’s competition. There were so many prizes that went out to so many Parrot Heads!!!  A huge THANK YOU to all of you!!!!

After playing the 9 holes, everyone had four different tasty options for dinner at the clubhouse as soon as they were finished golfing or whenever they wanted to place their order. The meals were great and all the staff at the golf course was exceptional!

Golf stories were shared as the libations were disappearing. We had Jimmy Buffett’s tunes blasting in the clubhouse for all to enjoy!

 Every year we have a 50/50 Draw, but this year we also had Door Prizes (Hockey Jerseys mostly) and two Raffle Draws (two gift baskets worth over $700 altogether). Thank you to everyone who bought tickets for these draws! The total amount raised from the Raffle Draws was $525 and the 50/50 Draw made $155. We sold many Mulligan’s for $5.00 each which raised $365. Hmmm! We really are so competitive! I wonder if anyone else found some in their pocket the next day too?

Thanks goes out to all who entered the tournament as well as the organizers! Something like this doesn’t just happen without hours and hours of work behind the scenes. Cheers to all who helped, and participated!

The total amount raised was $1502.26! This amount will be added to the other funds raised this year for this worthy charity. There will be a cheque presentation on September 28 at 2 PM, Top’s Pizza & Steak House on Fairmount Drive SE. Come on out and enjoy some tunes, catch up with old phriends, and be part of the BIG Cheque Presentation to the A.L.S. Society.
We sure hope that you can make it out to this important event!


Addendum: Cheque Presentation:

We raised our “Tin Cup Chalice”s on September 28 at Top’s Pizza &.Steak House as we celebrated handing over of a cheque to the ALS Society of Alberta!
“Everbody’s Talking” about how fantastic and phun it was to “Party With a Purpose”!
We were definitely “Here for a Good Time, Not a Long Time”!
Dustan and Joyce entertained with a couple of sets to make it feel like “5 o’Clock Somewhere”, although there weren’t any “Nautical Wheelers” gliding ‘cross the floor! No “Lone Palm” in sight, or “Harvest Moon” either... only snow coming down!
Thanks to all of you who came out for this event!
It truly was a “Lovely Cruise”!
