The First Shivas Quail Golf Event - 3/25/19
Twas the first Shivas Irons Society golf event in conjunction with the members of Quail Lodge and Golf Club in Carmel Valley, CA. It was a glorious Monday of golf, friendship building, and hospitality. Twenty of us had a nice lunch in the Members Lounge before heading out to the course for golf. As is tradition, we enjoyed a couple Shivas inspired golf holes. We played hole number seven with one club of our choosing. And we played the 17th hole in silence and holding in our thoughts a special appreciation for Edgar Haber for his having conceived and designed the Quail Lodge and Golf Club. Even the rain that was forecasted held off in what has been an unusually wet winter here in the Monterey Peninsula. After golf, we were treated to drinks and tasty hors d'oeuvres at the beautiful home of Konny Murray and Dave Buckingham, overlooking the valley. Finally, Charter Shivas Member Tom Ingalls read Agatha's tribute to golf and men loving men from Golf in the Kingdom and Richard Warren enthusiastically recited the poem, Seaside Golf: the 13th hole at Enodoc.
