A sumptuous buffet dinner, toasts, recollections, reflections, a raffle and lottery scratchers bring an end to Cypress Golf Club’s 54-year history
It was a happy gathering at Cypress Golf Club’s final banquet on Sunday, January 28. 2018 – up to and until it was time to end the gaiety and participants realized they were saying goodbye and farewell instead of the usual good night.
The Cypress Golf Club’s 54 years on the Northern California golf scene is now history.
After opening remarks by club president Dale Sasaki, eighteen club members that took part in their last annual dinner listened to Jim Ono relate highlights of the club’s 54-year history and Bob Kozen reflect on his 50 years as a club member.
Five loyal Cypress major tournament sponsors were recognized and thanked: Dick Nakamura (Tournament of Champions), Koji Sugimoto (Kaita Restaurant Championship), Nobu Muta (Nobu Muta Tournament), Roberta Murai (JTM/Coldwell Banker Tournament), and John Kawamoto and Petrinovich Pugh & Co. LLP (Cypress Memorial Tournament).
The party ended with raffles and scratchers conducted by club vice president Tom Murai who visibly tried to control his emotions as he terminated the evening’s activities.
