Mayor's Golf Outing Runs Smoothly Despite Threat of Rain

David B. Corbin for The Westfield Leader and The Times

The Westfield Mayor’s First Annual Golf Outing came off as a success at Jumping Brook Country Club in Neptune after having been rescheduled from August 21 to August 28 due to severe rain and flooding conditions and despite having the constant threat of inclement weather.

GOOD, CLEAN FUN Joanne Rajoppi holds her Teddy Bear which she had been awarded for her golfing prowess during the Westfield Mayor’s First Annual Golf Outing held at Jumping Brook Country Club in Neptune on August 28. Pictured behind Rajoppi, left to right, are: Bob Ellenport, Mayor of Clark; Thomas A. Jardim, Mayor of Westfield; Norman "Dutch" Sevelle; Lawrence C. Goldman, Westfield Councilman.

Friends, associates and acquaintances of Westfield Mayor Thomas C. Jardim were in attendance. Although there were no "Legends of Golf" produced, fun was had by all who attended and several individuals came home with some "one upsmanship" awards. Everyone survived the outing and everyone had a good time.

Clark mayor Bob Ellenport captured the Longest Drive award, Helen Karamus won the Closest to the Pin by a Woman award and Norman "Dutch" Sevelle won the Closest to the Pin by a Man.

The Lowest Score for a Foursome was won by Ken Fromer, George Kraemer, Donald Gray, Jr. and Donald Prendergast. The Highest Score was turned in by Joanne Rajoppi, the Lowest Gross Score was turned in by Ken Fromer and the award for the Lowest Net Score was given to John Moore, Jr.

FEAR STRIKES OUT...
Reportedly, this little known golfer had to be lifted to his golf cart and awarded a free drop in the fairway after freezing over the ball.
