Held the last Saturday of August at the luxurious Pinewood Country Club in Ogden, New York, the Past Prime Golf Tourney will be celebrating it’s 14th anniversary in 2012.
Originally the brainchild of a drunken bender betwixt our venerable veterinarian, Doc and resident alumni drunk, Pete “Hoe” Morris in the mid early 90’s, the dream became a reality in 1999.
Foursomes are drawn the night before by Tourmaster Vujo and revealed at the pre-tourney “prayer” session the morning of the tourney. The cost for this “scramble” event is now $75.00. This includes 18 holes of golf, riding cart, steak dinner & beer. Prizes are provided to all paid participants. Beer/water/soda is also placed strategically around the course for golfers thirst needs. Occasionally, our brethren from the North Country bring along a batch of the official Past Prime beverage (Caeser's) to be consumed as part of the pre-event festivities.
Each year a few chosen active members receive an authentic Past Prime jacket. After being handed out in 2003 and 2004, but missing 2005, these eBay collectibles were once again given to a few lucky individuals from the current softball and hockey contingent in 2006 - 2011. A vote amongst the Past Prime board voted to allow alumni to be eligible to receive them starting in 2007.
.Prizes are awarded for:
Lastly, the illustrious Frank R. Calle "Get the F*ck out of here" award - is given to the Tourney player that best exemplifies showing utter disregard for either their own bodies and/or their golf mates for the entire day. Tour favorite (and two time winner), Vic “spoon” Hannak, DID NOT SHOW in 2011 and the award was not presented as there was no positive influence for the other golfers.
