Club Chronicles: Tales From Golfers Across Massachusetts - MASSGOLF

A Collection Of stories & Achievements from Mass Golfers Across The Commonwealth

What’s golf without making fond memories (good and bad) along the way? The season is coming to a close, and we know there’s an abundance of amusing and touching stories that have been made during these past few month, whether they’ve been witnessed or just heard through the grape vine.

With that in mind, for the first time, we’re asking that you share these tales with us so they can be shared on our platform with the Mass Golf Community. If you have a spectacular golf story from this year, whether it’s a long overdue golf outing/reunion, a noteworthy club championship victory, a marriage proposal, or just one of those once-in-a-lifetime shots, we welcome you to pass it along to us.

Please note, if you are celebrating a hole-in-one, please go ahead and submit that on this page, to receive your custom bag tag!

We do have some Local Rules in place: 

-All submissions must be 100 words or less.

-Limit all submissions to one photo

-Must be appropriate for all ages (Mass Golf’s Communications & Marketing team will have the final say on that.)

If your submission meets all our criteria, you can share it using our online form. CLICK HERE to send us your submission.

Again, your entries must be 100 words or less. 

Each month, we will share these stories in Mass Golf’s Weekender newsletter. The newsletter is available to all Mass Golf members every Friday morning. If you do not currently receive the newsletter, please send a note to: sderderian@massgolf.org


OAKLEY COUNTRY CLUB

Bob Malcolm, 61 years old, won our Club Championship for the 23rd time! Pretty cool but not the unique part. He has now won the club championship in five different decades. — Scott Johnson


PINEHILLS GOLF CLUB

Julie Schumacher and Brennen Carroll got engaged Wednesday, August 3 after finishing 18 holes on the Jones Course. How did they celebrate? They played the Nicklaus Course the next day. — Pinehills Golf Club


BLACKSTONE NATIONAL GOLF CLUB

They did what? Owen Egan and Christian Emmerich, two close friends who compete for the Holy Cross men’s golf team, pulled off the rare feat of making an albatross (double-eagle) on the same hole in the same group, the 494-yard, par-5 8th, during a practice round Monday, September 5 at Blackstone National Golf Club in Sutton. Emmerich sank his using an 8-iron from about 180 yards, while Egan used a gap wedge and drained his from about 120 yards. – Holy Cross men’s golf team
