DMA Golfers Again Win Silvermine Cup

On June 24th, golfers from DMA and the Senior Men’s Club of New Canaan (SMCNC) met at the Silvermine Golf Club to fight it out for the Silvermine Cup. SMCNC undertook a major recruitment effort this year in an effort to win back the cup. I am happy to report that DMA again emerged victorious in a very hard-fought match by the score of 15.5 to 14.5. DMA now leads the series 3 to 1.

My sincere appreciation for the terrific participation we continue to have for this annual event. There are a lot of good golfers among the DMA membership. When we get a good turnout of our best players, we have proven to be a tough team to beat. Our appreciation to the following members of the 2015 DMA golf team:
