24th Annual VNS/Edna Open

The 2018 annual Visiting Nurse/Edna Open will be held at Newport National Golf Club again this year but the 2018 date will be Monday, June 11th at 12:45.   To sign up go here.

The 2017 annual Edna Open returned to the Newport National Golf Course on Mitchell’s Lane in Middletown on Monday, June 26th. This Arthur Hills design links course has been voted the #1 course you can play in New England and Rhode Island.

We had a beautiful day and a great flight of golfers….lots of new faces ready to compete for honors. When all was tallied, the best Ladies Foursome was Sharon Wood-Prince, Terry Morgenthaler, Donna Paolino, and Lisa Browning. The best Mens Foursome was Greg Gabriel, Joe Gabriel, Paul Colombino, and Ron Ramieri. The best Mixed Foursome was Bing West, Betsy West, Carol O’Malley and Nick Harry. Dan Corrigan had the Men’s Longest Drive, and Kris Sethares had the Ladies Longest Drive.

Nobody won the big pot of $2500 for the Putting Contest, so we’ll have to keep that title open!

All proceeds from the VNs/Edna Open go to support Hospice at Visiting Nurse Services. The memorial tournament was organized in 1994 by the family of Edna Schwartz to honor her life. Since then, the Open has expanded to also remember Kathy O’Brien Franks and brothers, Jay and Jerold Schwartz all cared for at the end of life by VNS Hospice.
