Spanish American Club raises scholarship money

Herman Santa

What a better way to spend an afternoon than playing golf for a good cause. This was exactly what some members of the Spanish American Club, Inc. and their friends did on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at The Saints Golf Course in Port St. Lucie.  The winners were: Ed Seubert “Longest Drive,” Carlos Bonet and Jim Marguart “Most Points” and Ed Seubert and Gus Migliore “Greenies.” There was no winner for the “Closest to the Pin,” which will be played soon.

Thanks goes to our golf committee and our club members and their friends for participating and making the tournament a success. Proceeds went to the scholarship funds of the club. The tournament provided participants an opportunity to have a great time while giving to a good cause.  The group was formed more than 20 years ago. They play 18 holes on Wednesdays from January through December (winter after noon and summer after 9 a.m.) at The Saints Golf Course in Port St. Lucie.

Some play “Closest to the Pin” on all par threes and others play the point system (Birdie 3 points, Par 2 points and a Bogey, 1 point). You don’t have to be a member of the Spanish American Club, Inc. to join the group. Some of the active players of the club are: Herman Santa, Luis Rosa, Nick Arnell, Roberto Belardo, Ray Guadalupe, Jim Marguart, Carlos Bonet, Rubén Sánchez, Gil Hulting, Fernando Mejía, Rubén Alemán, Gus Migliore, Ed Seubert, Joe Rizzo, Ted Abbot, Bill Allen, Jim Lynch and Carlos Rodríguez.

Other players that substitute or every now and then play with the group are: Pete Marrero, Ralph Harrison, Bernie Jethroe, Don Taber, Jaime Rojas, Mike Pérez, Manny Carcel, Tony Colón, Neftalí Rivera, Jorge Pérez and Efren Peréz.  To find out more information about them, please contact Herman Santa at For more information please visit Come and join us, we are a fun group.

Todo un éxito el Torneo de golf del Spanish American Club, Inc.

Por Herman Santa

Con una nutrida participación de más de 10 amantes del juego de golf, se llevo a cabo el “Torneo de Golf” del “Spanish American Club, Inc.” el miercoles 22 de octubre en la cancha de golf “The Saints” en la ciudad de Port St. Lucie.  El estadounidense Ed Seubert ganó en “Closest to the Pin”.  El puertorriqueño Carlos Bonet y el estadounidense Jim Marguart conquistaron los “Must Points” y finalmente Ed Seubert y el colombiano Gus Migliore se llevaron los “Greenies”.   No hubo ganador del “Closest to the Pin” el cual se realizará en otra ocasión. Otros jugadores que participaron fueron: Luis Rosa (PR), Rubén Alemán (PR), Herman Santa (PR), Ray Guadalupe (PR), Fernando Mejía (México), Rubén Alemán (PR), Joe Rizzo (USA)

Ellos practican todos los miercoles desde que se formó el grupo hace más de 20 años después de las 12 de la tarde (invierno) o 11 de la mañana (verano).  Algunos apuestan en los hoyos de Par 3 (Greenies y Sandies) y otros en el total de puntos (1 por el Bogey, 2 por el Par y 3 por el Birdie).  La esperanza del grupo es unir a los golfistas hispanos y hacer un torneo de golf al final de la temporada para recaudar fondos para la beca que ofrece el club a estudiantes hispanos del área de bajos ingresos.   Las personas que estén interesadas en unirse al grupo pueden llamar o mandar mensaje de texto al (772) 486-4928 (

By Herman Santa

The Annual Halloween Party hosted by The Spanish American Club, Inc. was celebrated on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Hall in Port St. Lucie.  Members and guests were invited for tricks, treats, dances, snacks “picadas” and door prizes for the best costumes and to be scary. Members present celebrating their birthday were: Cookie Santiago, Sofie Eisen, Johnny Borras, Marcel Cartagena, Daisy Alemán, Dick Diamond, Willie González and Frank Megaro. Door prize winners were: Dick Diamond, Isa Bryson, Willie González, Joe Wasdovich and José Medina.

After the announcements, birthday celebration and raffle drawings, everyone enjoyed the entertainment of D.J. José Ramírez with his repertoire of songs he sang and played. We were so very fortunate to have the board, the members and their guests to support these events that have been going the last Saturday of each month at the DAV. This was one-of-kind Halloween Party that every one enjoyed.  Next events of the club are the following: Thanksgiving Party, November 29 and the Holiday Dance on Saturday, December 27. If any person is interested in becoming a member of the club, please contact the president of the club, Carlos Bonet, at  For more information please visit
