25th Annual VNS/Edna Open

The 2018 annual Visiting Nurse/Edna Open was held at Newport National Golf Club again this year on Monday, June 11th.  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 Barbara Barrow, Sue Green, Kim Lyons, and Suzanne Kissell. The best Mens Foursome was Gary Doster, Mike Karolewski, Dan Quinn and Kevin Ulmschneider. The best Mixed Foursome was our own Candy Sharkey, Stephanie Mediate, Joe Mediate, and Sheri Ferland.

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.
