Hard to believe a year has passed since the last summer sports event.
Guess what? It is that time again so put this on your calendar and get ready to set your sails for Canonsburg, PA for the FOCA Summer Sports event Golf Outing hosted by the Canonsburg O’ Club!!!
We will be Tee-ing off this year’s festivities a day early for a Meet & Greet warm up round at a nationally recognized golf course north of Pittsburgh that is ranked in the top 50 Public golf courses in the US by Golf Digest Magazine* and one of the Top Ten Unique Golf Courses in the US. Olde Stonewall is a very intriguing, picturesque, and memorable place to tell your friends about. Bring your camera phone to remember some of the breathtaking views but keep moving or you will get lost. There is no walking this course unless you bring hiking boots. If you do, we will laugh. Anyway, we will golf there on Thursday (T-time TBD).
We have also reserved a block of rooms at the HILTON GARDEN INN at Southpointe in Canonsburg for everyone’s stay. Stockman got us the hook up on doubles and Suite’s, but you must reserve and book ASAP under “FOCA Golf Event”.
The Friday Challenge and fun stuff will begin at Hickory Heights Golf Club in Bridgeville, PA – very close to the Hilton Garden Inn. Get ready for more elevation changes, it will make your brakes fade. The course is really fun and challenging; yet can be welcoming to the novice golfer with a conservative attitude. After golf, we can hang out for a bit in Sammy’s Pin High Club, then off to the hotel to get cleaned up for some relaxing.
As in the past, the Canonsburg Group will be hosting a post-round fellowship hour at the world-famous Club Leaf & Bean on Friday evening. The Club Leaf & Bean is known for hosting some of the most prestigious events and special guests on the planet. From Rocky Patel and Hamlet Paredes – cigar entrepreneurs, to Smokey Robinson – Entertainer and Wine aficionado, Vincent Pastore – from the Sopranos HBO series; Paul Cullen – Bad Company band member, Chef and Sommelier. We have reserved the lower level of the club as well as the bocce ball court. All our golfers will be able to relax and enjoy the Club’s amenities and ponder their Saturday round.
Saturday will prove to be an additional challenge as you will need to bring your “long” game for a re-do of our last time finishing course at Quicksilver Golf Club. No, this course is not named for your host’s hair color transition, it is named for how fast you can lose some coin betting on each hole. If you remember this course, it is wide open and well worth you swinging out of your shoes!
Get ready, stretch a lot, and remember...... “muscle memory”
(I forget what that means)
