Patriot Day & Olney Invitational News!

Olney Invitational Golf Tournament at Orleans Country Club

Saturday, September 22, 2018

This was the first year of an annual event.  There were 80 players, which is a great turnout for the first year.  It will certainly grow moving forward!

One of the highlights of the day was the music that was playing outside while people played golf, it could be heard throughout the entire course, thank you to Nick Bourassa of NIX MIX!  Also thank you to Barr Hill Distillery and to Jasper Hill Farm for their delicious samples on the course!  And a HUGE thank you to the many sponsors for this event.

Another highlight was WWII and Korean War Veteran Pete Gonyer who joined us for the event. At the end of the day,  Josh shared Pete’s military background and countless awards and medals pictured in the above photo. A perfect way to wrap up a great day.

After it was all said and done, between the players, the hole sponsors, and the raffle donations, $3,855 was raised for local area Veterans and their families for heating assistance for the upcoming winter.

Also a big thank you to Katie Haley who will handle the actual donations to these families.  Thank you to everyone, hope to see you again next year!

Jankowski Wins Vermont PGA Stroke Play Championship

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

After two days of play at Stowe Country Club, Dave Jankowski brings home the VT PGA Stroke Play Championship Trophy which now resides at Orleans Country Club until next year’s tournament.

As Wednesday’s round started to reach its eventual conclusion, Jankowski could see a possible win when he got to the final hole. “I knew that I needed to make par on eighteen, and I was able to sink an eight footer for par to win it. It came down to the last shot and Dave Bennett finished one shot behind me at one under par and I was fortunate enough to edge him out at two under par,” said Jankowski.

With the win, Dave gets a glass trophy to keep for himself, and the big trophy will get a plaque added to it with Dave’s name on it and will be on display at OCC.

One Heck of a Golf Story

On Thursday, August 23, 2018 the “early morning group” awarded Ray Giroux with a trophy for his “Double Roof” shot birdie on Hole #18 this season.

According to unnamed witnesses, the ball was hit with a hybrid club onto the roof over the ladies locker room, then bounced high in the air coming down on the porch roof facing the green, then rolling off onto the ground and ending up 4 feet from the hole for an easy putt. The trophy was presented by Cincinnati Ron.

The members of the early morning group are Charlie Killian, Mike Kelton, Walt Raymond, Don Putvain, Mark Hallam, Pat Clarke, Pete Bertoletti, Ray Giroux, Stephen Plume, Bob Fair, Cincinnati Ron and Darryle Mongeon.
