Rockledge Men's Club

President's Message

September 2020

Dear RMC Members, 

I hope you and your family are doing well. After a late start, the Rockledge Men's Club 2020 season, with record-setting participation, is coming to an end. I'm writing to update you about the end of our season.

First, if you have not already heard, Rich Crowe has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the 2020 golf season.  Rich has been the Head Golf Professional at Rockledge for 36 years and has run what is widely regarded as the number one municipal golf course operation in the state of Connecticut. Please join me in wishing Rich and his new wife Joan all the best in the next phase of their lives.    

The RMC Nominating Committee, led by Joe Righenzi, has suggested the following list of members for election to the 2021 RMC Board of Directors:

President: Joe Waxman 
1st Vice President: Steve Miller 
2nd Vice President: Joe Fiss 
Treasurer: Joe Spagna
Secretary: Jeff Cunningham 
Member at Large: Rick Roberts 
Member at Large: Jason Burrill 
Member at Large: Marc Maniatis

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fall business meeting, which includes the election of the 2021 RMC Board of Directors, that is normally held during the breakfast meeting at the Closer Shamble will now be held via a ZOOM Meeting on Wednesday October 21st at 7:00 pm.  The meeting invite will be sent to all members prior to the meeting and we encourage all to attend this very important meeting.
The remaining tournaments on our 2020 schedule are:

  • September 13th - ABCD

  • September 26th – Flighted two man best ball (you can sign up and play with a non RMC member as long as they have a valid USGA handicap) 

  • October 4th – Ryder Cup 

  • October 11th – Tournament of Champions 

  • October 13th – John Sivell Challenge 

  • October 25th – Closer Shamble (Shotgun start – no meeting or  breakfast)

  • November 1st – Greens Keepers Revenge, West Hartford Food Pantry Fund Raiser (Shotgun start). 


2020 has certainly not been the year that anyone of us anticipated, however I would like to thank everyone that has contributed to a successful year for the Rockledge Men’s Club. 
I hope to see you all logged onto the Fall Business meeting on Wednesday October 21st at 7:00 pm. 


Kevin Pasternack
President, Rockledge Men’s Club
