A Perfect Day for Golf

The weather was practically perfect for the 12th annual Saint Vincent’s Day Home Golf Tournament held on May 12 at the Sequoyah Country Club in Oakland. A field of 84 golfers enjoyed a round of golf “Fore the Children” in addition to competing in a putting contest, closest to the pin, top overall foursome, vying for the Corrigan Cup and the Ladies team trophy.
