MASTERS COUNTDOWN — 50 DAYS: WHO HAS PLAYED AUGUSTA THE MOST?

The Masters starts in 50 days. How about that!

In honor of the 50-day mark, I want to look at which golfers have teed it up the most times at Augusta National in the history of this storied tournament. This April will mark the 80th Masters and a handful of golfers have played in over half of them. Here are your top four.

Gary Player — 52 Masters
Arnold Palmer — 50 Masters
Doug Ford — 49 Masters
Raymond Floyd — 46 Masters

Palmer actually played in 50 straight from 1955 to 2004. However, he last made a cut in 1983. As far as current golfers go, Tom Watson has played in 42. Sandy Lyle has 34. Both Bernhard Langer and Larry Mize have 32.

Couples has been competitive, too. He’s finished in the top 20 in five of the last six years, including a top 10 in 2010.

Great Valentine’s Dinner and Music

Valentines

Honey Creek Golf and Country Club held our annual Valentine’s Dinner Party on Saturday, February 11, 2017.

Dinner was prepared by visiting Chef Aaron.  Meal options included Rib-eye Steak, Chicken Breast, and Salmon.  As always, Aaron did a wonderful job and the meals were fabulous.

Music was provided by Mr. David Beale.  David performs as a solo acoustic guitar player and singer. The music was a great complement to the dinner and conversation atmosphere — and as the night got later (and people got a little bolder) was perfect for a little dancing.  We cannot wait to get David back to play music for future events.

The 2017 Valentine’s Dinner Party was a complete success and it was a pleasure to see a room full of folks enjoying food, music, conversation, and a little dancing.  It was reflective of what Club Membership is supposed to be all about.

We want to thank all of the Club Members and their guests that came out to participate in the Valentine’s Dinner Party!
