    Mike Mattrey worked at the bag drop at Sea Trail for 10 years and during that time he made a boatload of friends. When he died Aug. 9, those friends wanted to do something to remember him.
    They collected money among themselves and then installed a plaque at the bag drop at Sea Trail that reads, “Mike Mattrey, 1942-2011, A Friend to All”.
    The golfers had been generous and there was money left over.

  • Get going! It’s never too late...

    My husband learned to play golf as a kid and by the time he was in high school, he had a single-digit handicap and played No. 1 on his high school team. In the years since then, he won 10 championships at three different clubs.
    I started playing later in life. Gene bought me a set of clubs when we first got married. He and his buddies would take me out to play golf once in a while and the only requirement was that I play fast. They didn’t care how many strokes I took from tee to green or if I even counted strokes, I just had to keep up with the guys.
