Don’t forget that the Carolina Colours Invitational golf tournament will be hosted by the Carolina Colours Golf Club October 18 and 19. The format includes two man teams, with the first day a traditional scramble, and the second day a Texas scramble. The weather forecast is great, and October golf in North Carolina cannot be beat. Signup ends on Wednesday the 23rd, and spots still remain in what promises to grow into a major event on the regional golf calendar.
The annual Carolina Colours Golf Club championship played to beautiful weather this past weekend. After two days of competition, Maureen LaFrance was crowned ladies champion, while Dan Beasley took home the trophy for the men. Gale Biers was the men’s senior champion, in a playoff. Other winners included Sandy Berberich in the ladies second flight and Ken Kirkman in the men’s second flight.
Runners up included Denise Plourde in the ladies championship flight, Nancy Filipow in the ladies second flight, Danny Gaston in the men’s championship flight, Ed Czernik in the men’s senior flight, and Karl Berberich in the men’s second flight.
Prizes were awarded immediately after play Sunday, accompanied by another great feast from Chef Katherine!
Following a rainy week, the sun shone brightly for the 2014 Carolina Colours member guest golf event. As usual, the food and the camaraderie were outstanding, as was the golf course. The format consisted of 5 nine hole matches against the other 5 teams in your flight, full handicaps, with each of the five matches worth 10 points.
The overall champion was Charles Kassay, with his guest Roger James. Other winners were Pat Phillips and her guest, Alvina Diello, who were the overall women’s winners. Finishing second overall were Peter Farkas and his son Chris.
The players gave the course rave reviews, and all look forward to returning next year.
The Carolina Colours Golf Club regrets that health and family circumstances have led Jeremy and Susan Bruno to return to Ohio to be closer to their family. Jeremy will be missed; he has been a great asset to our club. All of us involved with the Carolina Colours Golf operation were thrilled to see this in Jeremy’s notice:
“We have enjoyed the four years that we have had with Carolina Colours. The management team is the best I have seen in the 60+ years that I have belonged to golf clubs. The attitude of the people and the progress that has been made on the course during difficult economic times is something you can be proud of.”
We at Carolina Colours take great pride in the quality of the work our team of home builders provides our home site owners. We provide a survey to each resident who builds a custom home a few months after move in, allowing them to evaluate on a confidential basis their building experience. We then use these surveys to insure that the builders that are a part of our team can be recommended with confidence.
We are pleased that of our last ten surveys, representing 5 of our custom builders, 9 stated that the quality of their custom home was outstanding, and 1 rated it good. Of the 80 total questions (relating to quality, communication, timeliness, cost effectiveness) only 3 questions were answered “average” while the other 77 were either “good” or, in the majority of instances, “outstanding.” Not a single owner reported any part of his or her experience as poor.
Many of our current home site owners are nearing their targeted construction time. Please call any of our sales agents at 1.877.356.2304 to discuss building options, or take a look at carolinacolours.com to learn more about our builder team.
The 2nd Annual Carolina Colours Pool Party took place on Sunday, June 22nd, with a great turnout of residents, children, grandchildren and guests. The kids competed in games while the adults took their turn at horseshoes, croquet and Bocce Ball. With beer, wine, a delicious BBQ dinner and a DJ playing everyone’s favorites, a good time was had by all!
Two state of the art Har-tru tennis courts are now open for play at Carolina Colours. With its automatic watering system, maintenance is easy and the surface is great for those of us whose legs and ankles have a few years on them. Located near our swimming pool at the Pavilion (clubhouse) complex, accessibility is great.
The first of what is planned as an annual fund raiser for law enforcement, the Crime Stoppers Tournament, was held at Carolina Colours Golf Club on May 22. Blessed with perfect golf weather, the 4 man superball (scramble) event was greatly enjoyed by all players. The winners were Damon Libby, Kelly Clark, Al Drake and Mike Raferty, while the runner up team consisted of Bud Bennett, Barry Pearson, Tom Saunderson and Christian Desmarias.
112 golfers recently played in the 2nd annual Carolina Colours Kay Wilson Memorial Golf tournament for the benefit of Relay for Life and its battle against cancer. The day was ideal for golf, and Chef Katherine’s sumptuous meal, partaken by nearly 200, was befitting such an event. The after dinner raffle and silent auction, combined with the proceeds from golf and its related activities raised nearly $23,000 for the charity. Relay for Life has been adapted as the prime community wide charity for Carolina Colours, and numerous resident volunteers put in countless hours to be sure all went smoothly. In only its second year, the donation grew greatly from our initial foray into this fund raiser, and we feel that the sky is the limit in coming years.
Our winners were: 1st-Shawn Parson, Jeff Robinson, Bob Conway and Ted Frigon; 2nd-Mike Neill, Tommy Dale, Jon Davis and Jeff Womack; 3rd- John, Jim, Max and Nate Reed; 4th-Herb Martin, Jeff Davis, Jeff Lemon and Ashley Scott; and 5th-Greg Reinecke, Kim Reinecke, Steve Tyson and Scott Tyson.
Plans are already underway for the 2015 event. Thanks to all that made it such a success.
