June 2021

 

As we approach the month of July, I want to report that we have received $3,775 in donations to the McDonough Foundation Scholarship Fund from fifty-seven contributors through membership applications this year.  All of these funds are being applied to endow the Eastman Named Scholarship, bringing the total to $18,086.  Thanks to those who have contributed!!

 

 

We also identified a hole in our on-line membership application, because there is no line to make a donation to McDonough.  So, while we take steps to fill that hole, I would kindly request that anyone who has submitted their membership application on-line, please consider making a donation to the McDonough Scholarship Foundation.  We are only $2,000 short of fully endowing this scholarship, which will be awarded annually to one of our Eastman Golf Links employees.  Donations can be made by check, payable to THE McDONOUGH SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION, or on-line by logging into the McDonough website, mcdonoughgolf.com, and following the instructions on the DONATE menu tab. Please help get our total over the $20,000 threshold.

 

This year, the Foundation Board approved an award program to acknowledge the achievements of our scholars who have completed degrees.  Each graduate received a logoed YETI tumbler and a framed certificate.  EGL had one of its scholars graduate this May.  Naomi Nelson, who has worked for four years on the Maintenance Crew, completed her degree in English Literature with minors in Writing and Journalism.  She is presently working with Billy’s crew for the next couple of weeks, before heading to Connecticut where she will be teaching at a Charter School in an underprivileged community.  If you see her on the golf course over the next few weeks, be sure to congratulate her.

Golf in New Hampshire is a lousy topic for the spring of 2020. Covid-19 is wrecking havoc with the sociability of golfers. Sorry, Zoom doesn’t cut it just like hitting a golf ball into a net doesn’t substitute for a high flying 220 yard drive outdoors. How about we conjure up a happy thought for golfers? Group play!

One of the big reasons people don’t play golf is because they don’t have a friend to play with them. At Eastman Golf Links there are at least a half dozen play groups to participate in. Groups are available to men and women each week. Either the golf shop or a particular golf member directs each group. Sign up by a certain day and time and you are good to go. Foursomes are made by the group leader and typically emailed to you with at least 24 hour notice. Simple.

          Check out the weekly EGL groups here.

From a business perspective these groups have been instrumental in attracting new golf members to Eastman because the group play allows new friends to made almost instantly.

Andy Padden is a great example of the camaraderie that occurs within the groups.

“There are many things I like about Eastman Golf, but the people are the best part! When I joined 5 years ago, I hadn’t ever played much golf, and really didn’t know what I was doing. I was encouraged to join several of the golf groups, but felt funny about it because I was such a beginner. Five years later I play in 3 groups, have learned a lot about the game, and have made many friends. The groups are different in level of play, but all are welcoming, and have just the right amount of competition for me.”

Golfers have many different reasons to join a group but whatever your reason is we can guarantee you’ll make new friends very quickly. Most of the work setting up the weekly game is done for you, too. As a golf member all you need is a smile, a willingness to laugh, a few extra golf balls and an email address. Winners of the day are determined immediately following golf in the pub.

Email Mark Larrabee, mark@eastmannh.org Golf Professional at Eastman Golf Links, if we can answer group golf questions for you.

See you when the Covid-19 fog lifts.
