Rob Curley Wins TSF Golf Tournament

Glen Seabury takes first low net

The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield, Inc. (TSF of Wakefield) held their annual Golf Tournament at the Bear Hill Golf Club in Stoneham on Monday, September 15, 2014 with Rob Curley shooting a 80 and winning the TSF tournament again (also won in 2010). Finishing second with an 82 was PJ Nelson and third with an 83 was Jim Pappas.

After a cool morning, the sun broke through in the afternoon as 64 participants received their greetings and ground rules from Bear Hill assistant pro Jeff Wirbal and tournament co-chairmen Tom Merchant and Bob Curran in preparation of the 12:15 shotgun start.

Pro shop gift certificates and trophies were awarded to the low gross and low net winners. The top three low net winners, determined by the Callaway System, had Glen Seabury first with a 73, second was Bob Curran with 74 and third was Charlie Hartshorne with a 74. 

Prizes were also awarded for the longest drive on twelve, closest to the line on ten and closest to the pin on the four par threes.  The longest drive went to Howie Melanson and closest to the line was Jeff Brown.  The closest to the pin on the seventh hole was Frank Clerici at 6’, on the eleventh hole it was Glen Seabury at 10’ 2” and on the sixteenth Ellie DePasquale at 14’ 2”. There was no winner on the second hole.

TSF is most grateful to the sponsors of this tournament the: Wakefield Cooperative Bank, the Wakefield Daily Item, and Flo’s Auto Bath.  Volunteers Roberta DiNitto and Jean Hall checked the golfers in and supplied them with a sleeve of Titelist golf balls.

Following the golf, the Bear Hill staff served a delicious buffet dinner including:  salad, rolls, baked beans, corn on the cob, chicken and steak tips.  Carole Curran and Marge O’Leary sold tickets for a special fundraising raffle, which offered more than $1400 in prizes including many gift certificates and golf equipment.

~ Start a Scholarship Fund ~


Thinking about starting a Scholarship Fund? Scholarship Funds can be established for any reason. What better way to honor a family member, teacher, coach, or mentor whether living or deceased? Better yet, establish a Fund in your own name and start your own legacy! Funds can also be established in the name of a business or organization. Scholarship Funds are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Endowed Funds (meaning that they have reached a minimum balance of $7,500) will continue to provide scholarships into perpetuity. Each year, we pass along the story of your Fund in the form of biographical information to the Scholarship recipient. There is no better feeling in the world than to read a thank you note from a grateful college student.

To start a Fund, $750 is required with the promise of future yearly donations of at least $750 for the following ten years. If you are not ready to commit to a Fund yet but still want to help a student directly, we offer a One-time Scholarship for a minimum donation of $300. With a One-time Scholarship a Scholarship in the name of you, your honoree, business or organization will be made the following June to a deserving student. Your entire donation is disbursed.
