18th Annual Golf Outing Recap

 

Another MAJOR Success!

If you missed our 18th Annual Golf Outing, held at the ever popular Norvelt Golf Club, on Friday, May 19th, 2017, you missed a wildly successful day! Nearly 80 individuals and teams competed on the scenic course in skills prizes & contests, a chance to win amazing prizes, and name recognition on the Chamber Pot Trophy.

A Hidden Gem in the Laurel Highlands

Norvelt Golf Club comprises 27 beautiful holes on the western base of Chestnut Ridge. Conveniently located between the three towns of Greensburg, Latrobe, and Mt. Pleasant, NGC features the 6,417 yard 128 slope championship course and the 2,347 yard par 33 Luke’s Links.

NGC is open to the public and also has 350 annual members who participate in exchange programs with other courses, enjoy preferred tee times, and special events. They also host 26 leagues including nine women’s groups.

The lovely clubhouse lodge features “Norbert” the elk, a one-of-a-kind antler chandelier and great food. The deck overlooks the golf course and provides gorgeous panoramic views.

 

A sincere THANK YOU to owner of Norvelt Golf Course, Larry Liprando, and his team, who went above and beyond to host an incredible event – not to mention the mouthwatering steak dinner!

 

Congratulations to Our 2017 Winning Teams!

Both the club and the course were full of talented and eager golfers, ready to hit the green and claim their bounty. The player highlights of the day included Sanner Concrete & Supply’s battle to defend the championship from last year. They were successful in their quest to claim First Place again this year and we just couldn’t pull the thrilled team consisting of Adam Sanner, Ralph Demartino, Tim Sanner, and Nick Demartino away from the Chamber Pot Trophy!

This year’s Second Place winning team was Ritenour Lumber Company.

Last but certainly not least, Marlene Kalp / Al Meucci Real Estate secured the title for this year’s Ladies Winning Team.
