Junior Jamboree

The first-ever Maine Junior Golf Jamboree, held on Saturday, June 24, 2017 and sponsored by Junior Golf of Maine, was a huge success. Forty junior golfers and fifty family members from southern Maine participated in this fun event.  Two Chebeague juniors--Quinn Federle and Philip Traina--were in foursomes that took top prizes in two divisions. The weather was glorious, the course got rave reviews and our member volunteers were in top form.  A golf day to remember on Great Chebeague Island!

Hole-y Cow! Four Aces in Eleven Days

It took until September for a hole-in-one to be recorded on our course in 2017--and then there were four in eleven days--all on the club's signature 7th Hole, all with the cup on the lower level, the spot that offers the best chance of a hole-in-one on the course.   

Kathy Maskell, club Vice President, scored the latest one on Tuesday, September 12.  It was her first ever.  Kathy was playing with her father, the venerated Chuck Hilly.  

 

Three days earlier, Mike Dyer of South Portland thrilled to watch his nine iron send his ball to the 7th green cup. Mike was part of an outing to the club organized by Pete Rauscher of Port Harbor Marine.

The first of the four occurred on Friday evening, September 1 and was achieved by Bob "Birdie Bob" Scheele of Sunapee, New Hampshire.  

Club member and past Men's Champion Corky Clarke scored the second in dramatic fashion during the club's annual Labor Day Swatfest.  Jim Van Fleet had already won the Men's Swatfest competition.  Clarke and Bob Buxbaum went to the 7th tee to play-off for second place.  With a gallery of Swatfest aficionados looking on, Clarke's high arcing tee shot landed well above the pin, hesitated for a nano-second, then funneled into the cup.  Buxbaum was next up and, astoundingly, his ball, landing on a similar spot, took the same tantalizing journey toward the hole, only to brush the pin and continue past the cup.  He made the come-backer to finish third.
