Vineyards Golf Course

Friday Night Couples League — It was a beautiful Friday night for our final get together for the Friday Night Couples at the Vineyards Golf Course. There were 14 couples enjoying golf and then after golf a beautiful turkey dinner with all the trimmings provided by Manning’s catering service. The golf scores ranged from 30-37 with closest to the pin on hole No. 3 by Steve Lundine and No. 9 by Bob Manning. After golf five gift certificates were awarded through a random drawing. The couples would like to extend there thanks to owner Rich Mancuso and his staff for keeping the golf course in great condition especially the excellent condition all the greens were in throughout the year. We will continue this outing in 2018 so keep an eye on the observer in the spring for information as to when the couples outing will begin.
