On Friday, April 20, the 36th Annual Brother Martin Golf Classic, sponsored by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Alumni Association of New Orleans, was held this year at Bayou Oaks South Course at City Park. Over 200 alumni, parents, and friends of Brother Martin gathered together for a little friendly competition of golf, great food, camaraderie, door prize raffles, and fun, all in support of Brother Martin High School.
In the morning and afternoon, players tackled the par 72 course and showcased their golf skills. Golf Committee Chairman, Ron Brisbi ’67 SA, commented that “with the large turnout of golfers playing in nearly perfect weather, it was a resounding success.”
This year, the afternoon was a record sell out, so golfers were eager to get into the morning round to secure their spot to play. The participants even had a chance for their name to be entered for door prizes and raffle prizes. Congratulations to Steve Damore ’77 for winning a Tito’s Golf Bag and to Sean Arrillaga on winning a Drew Brees autographed football! Other raffle prizes were given out including Brother Martin fan items, hotel stays at Le Meridien New Orleans, Marriott Canal Street, a round of golf at University Club and more!
An ample amount of delicious food on the course was available to the golfers, which consisted of charbroiled oysters from Mato’s and roast beef po-boys from Bear’s Poboys at Gennaro’s. Prior to the afternoon round, the Class of 1974 Cooking Team prepared a delicious lunch of roasted chicken, potato salad, white beans and rice from Katie’s, salad, and dessert. In addition, an after-golf reception for golfers and their guests included crawfish from Johnny’s Seafood Crawfish, along with a pasta and sausage dish prepared by our own Culinary Crusaders club.
After a great day, golfers and guests enjoyed the new addition of the ’19th Hole Party’ with food and drinks under the oaks and then with a DJ inside the clubhouse. “It was a well-attended event and a great way to end an exciting day for the golfers and Brother Martin,” remarked Brisbi.
