Senior athletes set to compete on the links
Registration now open for Senior Games Golf Tournament, July 8.
The Rhode Island Ocean Tides Senior Games will hold a golf tournament on July 8 at the Agawam Hunt Country Club, 15 Roger Williams Ave. in East Providence; it will be a scramble format with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.
The $125 registration fee includes greens fees, buffet lunch, golf cart, awards and prizes for closest to the pin and longest drive. To register your foursome, please visit www.riotsg.org.
Ocean Tides cofounders Nancy Dobie, a retired Seekonk physical education teacher, and Julie Baldwin, a retired physical education teacher, coach, and athletic director at the Wheeler School, appreciate the importance of staying active. Ocean Tides gives "seniors" (anyone over the age of 40 is eligible) the opportunity to continue to compete athletically, decades after they have put high school and college sports behind them.
The Senior Games run from March through September. In addition to the golf tournament, competitions are held in bowling, basketball, track and field, sailing, swimming, and triathlon. For more information, visit www.riotsg.org, email Rhodytides@aol.com, or call 401/253-1425.
