The Polish National Alliance’s 58th National Golf Tournament

There is only one game. Think Golf.

The Polish National Alliance’s 58th National Golf Tournament, hosted by Lodge 664 St. Joseph’s Club, was held on July 23rd and 24th, 2021, in Westmoreland City, PA. Two days of golf took place at the stunning Madison Club Golf course in Pennsylvania. 

We were honored by the presence of 108 golfers that joined the event. The Vice President of the PNA, Marian Grabowski, and the Chairman of the PNA’s 58th Golf Tournament Committee, Luke Baverso, have welcomed all the guests. Then, in their welcoming speech, they devoted a moment of silence to members, friends, and golfers who did not survive Covid.

Afterwards, the game started, and golfers took off into the beautiful golf course. Although it was hot, it didn’t get in the way of our golfers to be able to play like champions! We saw many great shots that day, and the tireless determination of our golfers, who had lots of fun. This game of confidence and competence, once again, has shown us that if one genuinely loves golf, they must love the fact that no one shoots 50 and that golf is an inherently imperfect game. As such, golfers love the challenge of the day as they understand that golf is a game of mistakes and unpredictable fortune. 


On the second day, after golf, there was an Awards Presentation during which the Vice President, Marian Grabowski, read a letter from the President of PNA, Frank Spula. In his letter, Mr. President recognized the officers of lodge 664 of Westmoreland City, PA. He extended his gratitude to them for their efforts and hospitality in hosting this event. President Spula thanked all the guests for their participation. He further expressed his hopes and plans to join in the following year’s golf tournament.

Next, he thanked the Officers of the District VIII, National Directors Val Pawlos and Jeff Twardy, along with Fraternal Advisors Sean Jackson for supporting this event from the beginning.

Additionally, a special thank you goes to Mr. Luke Baverso and members of Lodge 664 for their help in organizing this event.
