Blast of the Past ...

 Wednesday, March 17, 1999

Saturday, the South Gulf Cove Yacht Club held their 2nd,. Annual Invitational "Goofy Golf" Tournament , at the Rosebud Circle Country Club. In 1988 a few South Gulf Cove home owners met and discussed forming a boating club. January 1990 their first officers (Bridge) were elected and the club was officially named South Gulf Cove Yacht Club. June 1998 they became a non-profit organization. Their aim is to educate their members about boating in a safe and sensible manner and to enjoy each others company. Members receive a monthly newsletter, "Fish Rapper", which details information on the locks, waterways, by law changes, schedule of activities and any items concerning boating and members. They meet the first Tuesday of every month at the Rotonda American Legion Post.

Finale: "Surf City" WOW what a group of very imaginative people.


When the South Gulf Cove Yacht Club members decide to have their 2nd annual fun gala, they set the date for March 13th. They brain stormed on how to improve this years event, if that was possible because last years invitational was a real blast. The rules were very creative and the longest hole was 36 yards. Only one club, of choice, was used for the entire game. Par for the five hole Rosebud Circle Country Club course was 16. The pro that set the par for that course must have been a real winner. The score cards were ingeniously fashioned and had a professional look. Green fees were $1.00 per person, and good for all day. Tee off's started at 12:30 PM, making time for a play off, if

Entertainment arrived from Timbuktu and everyone had a "Blast Of The Past."
