A Look Back at the 23rd Teddy Bear Classic!

On July 24, 2017, the 23rd Teddy Bear Classic was held at the award winning Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland to benefit the J. Philip Berquist Children’s Dyslexia Center for Greater Boston. The Chairman of the Board of Governors, Bernie Goulding, thanks the volunteers, players, sponsors, and many long-time loyal supporters for a great day! Overall, the day brought in over $14,000 for the Learning Center! 
 
It was a dark and stormy day… Ok, it rained, hard! it was windy! It was cold! The brethren and supporters still came out in full force. Twenty-three teams registered and twenty-three teams played! Some even completed all 18-holes! The staff at Sandy Burr Country Club could not have been more accommodating!
 
Awards were made for the longest drive to two very loyal, long-time players. The men's winner was Bro. David Dill, while the women’s winner was Judy Eburn.  The Closest to the Pin award for men will be announced on September 9th at the Mount Lebanon Lodge Installation. There was no submission for closest-to-the-pin for women! A classic New England bar-b-que buffet, a warm beverage and finally drying off capped the day. Mulligans were available for any shot. Both a silent and live auction were held, and both went well! Past Grand Master Harvey J. Waugh was the highest bidder for Bernie Goulding’s Chef Catered Lobster and Clam Grill to be at his Nantucket Island cottage. 
 
Plans are already starting for next year’s Teddy Bear Classic on Monday, July 23, 2018, at the Sandy Burr Country Club. The Board of Governors is in the early stages planning for the 25th anniversary in 2019! Check the website at www.teddybearclassic.org.
