88 Golfers participated in UASC Tryzubís 40th Annual Golf Outing

Eighty-eight golfers from no less than six States competed in the Ukrainian American Sport Center Tryzub’s fortieth annual golf outing. Limekiln Golf Club again presented the players with good ground conditions and a beautiful day, enhanced by a high blue sky, thin wisps of clouds and brilliant sunshine. There was, however, a rather strong prevailing, gusting wind that made many holes quite challenging.

After golf, everyone gathered at nearby “Tryzubivka” (Ukrainian American Sport Center) in Horsham, Pa. for an awards banquet. Tryzub president, Orest Lesiuk, welcomed everyone, thanked them for participating, and reminded them about any number of exciting sporting, cultural and social events at Tryzub. He also described Tryzub’s current project which is the installation of a full-sized artificial turf field. Construction is well on its way and the financing is in place for prompt completion of the project, he said. He then turned the program over to Tryzub’s Golf Director, Joe Homick.
