With the addition of the new Patriot Hills Golf Club in Stony Point, the Patriot Hills Players Club (PHPC) was formed to further promote the game of golf in Rockland County. The PHPC will provide its members with the opportunity to participate in competitive golf tournaments within the club as well as other competitions in the Metropolitan New York area. In addition, club members will be able to obtain an official USGA handicap, which is transferable to any course in the USA. The club will also provide a means for the advancement of golf through youth golf programs.

Scott Filor (PHPC, President) recently stated that: "We have an outstanding golf facility at The Patriot Hills Golf Club and we would like to attract members for the newly formed Patriot Hills Players Club. Our club members will have the opportunity to play the best competitive or recreational golf in the state”.

Memorial Day Par Classic - May 22 - May26

The Stableford Format event is played every Memorial Day Weekend and the results are always interesting.  The scoring format is a little different with 0 points for a par, 5 points for a birdie, and 10 points for an eagle, all based on 80% of the players course handicap from the blue tees.  Players are penalized  5 points for a net bogey and 10 points for a net double bogey. In a tight finish Tom McLoughlin finished with a +15 after shooting 74.  Scott Filor had a score of +10 for second place and Paul Altomonte Jr  finished third at +5.  Congratulations to our winners.  Our next event is The Low Ball Classic sponsored by John O'Sullivan.

2014 MGA - MetLife en's FourBall Championship (formerly Met/Net): May 5

 Defending champ Ed Murray was not able to participate with his usual partner this year since his brother John moved south.  Son, Sean was an admirable replacement as he made a crucial birdie on the 18th hole to beat out 11 other teams and capture the 34th annual event.  They will now move on to the next round.  However, since Ed will be unable to play on the dates available, a replacement needs to be selected. Stay tuned for results of the next round.  Good luck.
