7/1/2019- Today, the “Purdy Brophy Two Balls of Four”event was held at Ballston Spa CC. We had a great day! The women arrived ready to play, the Ballston Spa members welcomed us, the pro shop treated us to some fun pin placements, and the food service gave us a great lunch. And, some of us got to shop after winning some chits. I’ve always thought we are winks on the first tee: a day of golf, the fun of the competition, and lunch…and, then, bonus…there may be a prize!
