The Wednesday Morning Men’s 9 Hole Golf League is a great avenue for introducing you to golf at Southport.  If you haven’t played recently and would like to begin again or continue your golf game in a non-competitive, non-handicap group, please join us for a relaxed morning of golf. Wednesday at 8:00, call the Clubhouse (508)477-7911 or come in to sign up.


 


18 Hole Women’s Upcoming Events

Women’s 18 Hole Golf League Opening Day for our league is Thursday, May 2, and registration days were April 24 – 26. If you plan to play later in the season, we will accept registrations throughout the season. Please Note: The annual registration fee for the league has been increased from $15 to $20 to accommodate the increased cost of providing the services we have enjoyed for social aspects, prizes and competitions. We also anticipate additional competitive events for our league.

Judy Sanford has graciously volunteered to be chairperson for our tournaments; she will be invaluable in organizing our competitions. Our League Committee includes: Kathy Hubbard, Nancy Gaudin, Cathy McCarthy, Sue Rodenberger. We look forward to a great season and hope you will join us Thursday, May 2 at 8:00 for coffee and pastries and to kick off our season at an 8:30 Tee Off. Happy Golfing! Charlene McCabe, League Committee Chair


 


A Look at Golf’s Health Benefits:

  • Walking 18 holes of golf is equal to taking a 5-mile walk or running 3.5 to 4 miles.
  • Playing 18 holes of golf burns roughly 2,000 calories when walking and 1,300 calories in a cart.
  • When walking 18 holes of golf, blood glucose levels fall anywhere from 10% to 30% depending on age.
  • Older people who golf have better static and dynamic balance control and confidence.
  • Golfers exceed 10,000 steps during a round of golf which meets the recommended guidelines for daily exercise.

tOM tUTTLEMeet Tom Tuttle
Superintendent, Golf Course & Grounds

Southport’s superintendent for golf course and grounds, Tom Tuttle (left), joined the staff in October 2015. Following his graduation from the Institute of Applied Agriculture at the University of Maryland in 1990, Tom launched his career as an assistant superintendent at Caves Valley Golf Club in Maryland and then at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey. Both facilities have held significant professional golf events for the PGA and LPGA. His first position as golf course superintendent was with the River Downs Golfers Club in Maryland, where he oversaw and managed the complete construction of the golf course and maintenance facility.

From River Downs, Tom moved on to become golf course superintendent at Trenton Country Club in New Jersey. He spent 15 seasons there, managing all golf course and grounds maintenance operations and overseeing various course construction and renovation projects. Tom left Trenton CC in 2011 and was a sales representative in the golf market selling plant nutrients, sand products and custom soil mixes and consulting with clients on nutrient programs and soil core testing. And that has led him to his new position with Southport on Cape Cod.

Tom and his wife of 21 years, Colleen, are the parents of three children: James, currently a sophomore at the University of Rhode Island; Thyra, a junior in high school; and Elizabeth, an 8th grader. “We all are excited about beginning this chapter of our lives here in Cape Cod,” he says. “I look forward to getting to know the Southport community in the coming years and I want to thank Southport for providing me the opportunity to work for such a well regarded community. ”

I look forward to the challenge of maintaining and sustaining the standards that have been established. I know all of the skills and abilities accumulated during my career will help me in achieving our goals together.”

Golf Committee

Golfer’s Creed Golf is a science, the study of a lifetime, in which you may exhaust yourself, but never your subject. It is a contest, a duel, or a melee, calling for courage, skill, strategy and self-control. It is a test of temper, a trial of honour, a revealer of character. It affords a chance to play the man and act the gentleman. It means going into God’s out-of-doors, getting close to nature, fresh air, exercise, a sweeping away of mental cobwebs, genuine recreation of tired tissues. It is a cure for care, an antidote to worry. It includes companionship for friends, social intercourse, opportunities for courtesy, kindliness and generosity to an opponent. It promotes not only physical health but moral force. – David Forgan (Circa 1900)

Whether you’re an avid scratch golfer or someone just considering learning the game, golf at Southport offers something for everyone. The Golf and Tennis Clubhouse is open seven days a week during the regular season. Tee times are recommended, but not always required. However, we suggest you call ahead to be sure there is not a league playing when you wish to play.

Coincidentally, your Southport Scholarship Committee is looking for new members.

Veterans’ Committee

Southport Veterans Committee has invited the Barnstable County Veterans Service Representative to address a meeting of all Southport veterans in September (date and time TBA). To prepare for this meeting, it would helpful to know what subjects or questions our veterans would like to be discussed. Topics might include loans, aid and attendance for housebound, disability, nursing home care, burial and burial flags or medical benefits, dental, etc. Please email your suggested questions or topics to Bob LeBel at navy3xplankowner@gmail.com.

Each year, on Veterans Day, the service flags flown in front of the Village Center are retired and awarded by the Southport Veterans Committee to a Southport veteran who served in the branch of the service represented by the flag. New flags are mounted and flown during the following year. Residents are invited to honor a deceased family member or friend who served in the United States military by funding the purchase of a new service flag. The cost of a flag is $75; both the donor and the honored veteran will be recognized at our Veteran’s Day ceremony on November 11, 2016. Contact Neil Harris at 781-254-4873, or hneilharris@comcast.net for more information.
