  • BLARNEY BLAST - Sunday, March 14th


     A whopping 59 members participated in this year's Blarney Blast St. Patrick's day golf at the Pompano Municipal Golf Course. This year's event was dedicated to our favorite leprechaun, Celeste Methot, and her life as well as her contributions to the group and golf in general. RIP Celeste. You will be in our hearts forever.
    One of Celeste's wishes is that we throw a big party, which will be in August on her birthday. The invite list will include those who go to her obituary and sign her memory book.
