Shivas Golf in Wilkes-Barre, PA
On Thursday, August 29, a small gathering of Shivas Golfers had a wonderful time at Wyoming Valley Country Club in Wilkes-Barre, PA. People traveled from as far west as Carmel, CA, and as far east as Geneva, Switzerland, in the person of Juan Calero. Dave Korba and Steve Steinwedel were our gracious local hosts and coordinators.
In typical Shivas fashion, we played a hole in silence and another hole with just one club. We even hit feathery golf balls on a par 3 with vintage clubs and that was a real treat!
One new member, Scott Collins, discovered our group by stopping in the clubhouse a couple weeks before, and asking head pro Peter Korba (Dave's brother) if he had ever read Golf in the Kingdom. Without even a word, Peter handed Scott a flyer about the event. After a subsequent phone conversation with SIS Director Ben Kline, Scott was happily enrolled. Below are some photos of our day together. If you would like to put together your own local event (it's really easy) and meet other Shivas Irons Society members, just call (831-216-6252) or email Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org.
