Heavy Rain Doesn't Dampen Spirits

Published: August 01, 2012
On Wednesday, July 11, over 50 golfers ascended on the Quarry Golf Club for what they hoped would be the 3rd Phi Psi Foundation Founders Cup. Making their way through registration to their carts, the participants marveled at the picturesque course, anticipating the shot gun start. At 7:15 am, they were off to their first hole. Most foursomes teed off and finished one hole before the rain rolled in. Not long after, the horn sounded for all golfers to return to the club house.

Calling it rain would be an understatement. For the next half hour, San Antonio experienced some of the heaviest rain it had in weeks and while the locals appreciated every drop, the golfers were hoping for a break. The majority of participants were able to make it back to the club house and enjoy breakfast tacos and beverages during the delay but others were not so lucky. Two foursomes, along with 3 course workers were hunkered down under a shelter near hole 2 of the course, waiting for a slow up in the rain so they could make their way back to the club house. All golfers were back, drying out and eating 30 minutes after the horn blew.

While there was no winning foursome and the longest drive and closest to the pin trophies were not handed out, the golfers will remember the 3rd Founders Cup for the rain and conversations that occurred over some local eats and drinks.
