With the onset of fall, the main season has started for the Duran Men’s Golf Association and the Duran Women’s Golf Association.
Both groups kicked off their fall season with competitions on October 11 and 12 at the club.
Playing the Duran Golf Club’s 7.11-yard par 72 course with holes dubbed Punch Bowl, Long Start, Lone Palm and The Coffin can be quite a challenge.
In the season opener, 55 men and 40 women competed in two separate events on hilly links-style terrain.
The Duran Golf Club was carved out of an A. Duda & Sons cattle ranch and bog. It opened in 2005 and was designed by renowned golf architect Lewis (Chip) Powell. It is located at 7032 Stadium Parkway, just north of Wickham Road, and is under the management of General Manager David Tomczak.
In addition to the golf course, the site contains a West Indies-style clubhouse, the Tradewinds restaurant, a driving range, a lighted 9-hole par 3 course and a development center. According to Harold (Jerry) McAnulty, the marketing and media representative, the club encourages new memberships. Activities, events and fundraisers are held throughout the year at the 30-acre site to promote friendship, networking, camaraderie and sportsmanship.
Robbie Rosenberger of Golf Carts Unlimited and Dr David Hernandez of HD Dental are sponsoring the men’s association this season. Deborah Tomczak of Viera Realty and Rosenberger are sponsoring the women’s association this season.
