The extended playoff delayed the annual cardboard regatta. It was a beautiful day so no one minded. Another great fun event at the pool.
I grabbed a few photos of golf, cardboard boat races and people around the pool. Take a look.
The annual SHCC Cardboard Regatta was another happening and we all had a blast. Enjoy some of the moments of the day.
This year we also had some additional “virtual members” of our staff to thank. The staff from other clubs that came out to help us out in our hour of need as we recovered from the storm damage from June. Thanks to them we were able to get the golf course back in record fashion. THANK YOU!
Krista and Lynn pose here for a quick snapshot. A few others are here.
You could hear chainsaws running 7x24 for the next couple of weeks as our grounds crew did an amazing job cleaning it all up. You can hardly notice the damage anymore.
As you can see, everyone had a great time.
The match was tied “all square” after the first 18 holes. Then in the second 18 holes Adam White built a commanding lead to be three up with five to play. Clay had a few great holes and battled back to one down with one to play, but ran into some tree issues on 18.
All the while our Club Pro was tweeting the status of the match. At least a tweet a hole. This made it very easy to follow and the current status was always clear. Nice addition this year Brian,

When guests arrived they were greeted by the president Craig Thatcher, and his wife LeAnne, as well as the head of Entertainment Tim Newcomb and his wife Carolyn. After a complimentary Blue Hawaiian the guests moved to the patio to listen to the Almost Brothers and to the ballroom where the chef had quite a selection of Pacific / Asian / Tropical fair. The coconut shrimp and the teriyaki shrimp were my personal favorites.
Of course there was socializing and dancing poolside on the patio, on the deck, in the Pavilion, and in the Ballroom. It was a perfect evening and a great event.
I didn’t stay very long as I wanted to make it an early evening as I’m off to Germany in the morning. Still, I was able to grab a few photos.
We had great food, met with good friends, and were visited by Santa and Mrs. Claus with presents for all the children. Another very successful Santa Brunch at Short Hills Country Club. See the photos and feel free to “right click” and download for your own use. Of course, you can always order a print for a nominal fee.
It was another very successful kids and family event at Short Hills Country Club. This time the kids made gingerbread houses in the ballroom while the parents “socialized” next door in the Pavilion. Fun was had by all. Here are a few photos of the event.
