Former Orioles set for tournament


September 19, 1993|By Blair Holley | Blair Holley,Contributing Writer

A marvelous slate of almost 30 celebrities -- and maybe more -- is scheduled to appear and play at the American Express/Toyota Celebrity Golf Tournament at Eagle's Landing Oct. 22 and 23 to benefit the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department youth program.

The latest pair to join the list -- both former Orioles and now with the Detroit Tigers -- is Storm Davis and Dave Johnson.

Play will be in the familiar scramble format with each foursome teamed with a celebrity. The entry fee is $175 a person or $700 a foursome. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Call Tom Perlozzo at (410) 250-0125 or Andy Loving of Eagle's Landing at (410) 213-7277 for more information.


Mary Boteler of Ocean Pines fired her second hole in one in two years in a fun round at Ocean Pines Golf Club. She had played for 20 years before scoring her first ace last year.

This time the perfect shot came on the 95-yard seventh hole, as her 5-iron shot from the tee box rolled unseen into the cup. Both Ann Reed and Bobbie Feenick, Boteler's playing partners, had hit into the trap, which guards the green, before they discovered the hole in one.


The women of the Ocean City Golf and Yacht Club held their senior (ages 50-64) and super-senior championships (65 and over) recently. The gross winner in the super-senior division was Jane Emich at 87, while the senior action went to Sandy Andersen at 91.

In net action, top senior was Kate Davis at 73, and Mary Twigg and Bella Gordon tied for super-senior honors at 76.

The Ocean Pines Ladies Golf Association-9 Holers Match Play tourney produced a final-match victory by Florence Taylor at 2 and 1 over Marietta Bosco. An evening scramble saw the threesome of Anne Hiner, Gerry Martin and Nancy Wells win with a 42 gross.

The winning foursome in the first Chesapeake Rehabilitation Hospital Invitational Golf Tournament at Nutter's Crossing was Gordon Gladden, Cindy Pellegrino, Dan Akin and William Donatelli.


Ken and Maryann Rakestraw of York, Pa., have not been to Ocean City for more than 10 years, but they came to town recently to enjoy the golf opportunities.

The couple played two rounds of golf -- one at Eagle's Landing Golf Course and the other on the Bayside Course of Ocean City Golf and Yacht Club -- and said it was a beautiful experience and that they plan to come back and try the other five courses in the Ocean City area.


A double foursome from Millsboro, Del., were recapping a golf day at a local restaurant recently.

Howard Marshall, Paul Hitchens, Frank Wiley, Norm Rader, Larry Tutek, Howard Hoffman, Herky Hirneisen and Bob De Gour had been playing at Eagle's Landing. "Great course but bring lots of balls," they said with a laugh. Hirneisen had the best card of the eight with an 84.


A reminder that the Preston A. Pairo Memorial Outing will held Thursday at the Beach Club Golf Course in Berlin with a 9 a.m. shotgun start and a Calloway system format. The tournament will be followed by a meal at Waterman's Restaurant on U.S. 50 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will also be a raffle to benefit the Worcester County Humane Society.

The cost is $75 a golfer. Checks should be made payable to Negotiations Inc., 12507 Sunset Ave., No. 11, Ocean City, Md. 21842. For more information, call (410) 213-0022 or (410) 213-2112.

Also, the Gary Player/River Run Youth Benefit Tournament will be held Tuesday at River Run with Player in attendance. Player will take his turn on the links in the afternoon with the winner of the morning tournament.

The tourney benefits the local Showell and Ocean City elementary schools and the Blair Atholl School in South Africa. The South African school was established by the Gary Player Foundation in 1988 to focus attention on rural schools in Player's native country. For more information, call (410) 641-7200.
