On September 14, Alumni and Friends gathered at the historic Saint Andrew’s Golf Club for the 2017 Alumni Golf Invitational to raise money for Student Financial Aid. What started as a misty morning was overcome thanks to the beautiful surroundings and high spirits of those in attendance.
“We had an outstanding time and played some good golf, but the highlight was truly the generosity of Ted Eppenstein ’68 for hosting us at his beautiful course and spending the day with all other wonderful Stony Brook Alums. The Alumni Association and Invitational Golf Committee’s hard work showed off as it was a highly successful event and I look forward to defending the cup next year,” said Steven Mazzurco ’09, one of the day’s winners.
Saint Andrew’s Golf Club is the oldest continuously operating golf club in the United States and one of the original founding members of the USGA, making for a special treat for the golfers.
“A course that has so much history and a layout that you will never forget! Amazing event, great to meet other alumni and also have a fun competition. I will be there next year to win again,” said Michael Poch ’05, another of the day’s winners.
The four winners of the day were Bryan Gaff ’02, Steven Mazzurco ’09, Michael Poch ’05 and David Rothenberg ’91.
In contrast to the Alumni Scholarship Golf Classic held earlier this summer, this Invitational was more competitive. However, that’s not to say that the novice golfers were not welcome. For those who did not wish to compete, a learn and dine option was offered, in which Golfers could take lessons with a pro instead of joining the competition.
