“Golf Links” Documentary

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 at 7:00 pm

golflinks“Golf Links” is an enlightening and entertaining documentary about the story of America’s first golf hero, Francis Ouimet—the first American amateur golfer to win the U.S. Open–and Chay Burgess, his mentor and founder of the New England PGA. Written and directed by Charles D. Burgess, this 46-minute film is narrated by Norwood resident and Boston radio personality Tom Doyle, who will appear at the screening dressed in period golf attire along with some of the other actors. Many of the re-enactment scenes were shot locally, and several Norwood residents, including children, participated in the filming. A selection of antique golf clubs, equipment, and other vintage images from the film will be on display. Autographed copies of Burgess’ DVD and book, “Golf Links: Chay Burgess, Francis Ouimet, and the Bringing of Golf to America,” make ideal Father’s Day gifts and will be available for purchase at a discount that evening.

To sign up for this program, please call the library at 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, email norprograms@minlib.net, or stop by the library Reference or Information Desk.

TOT_matTitles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more. Our book for June will be Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith; copies are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 6/23 @ 7:30 pm!
