On Monday, October 25, Brian Mahoney of the MGA participated in a golf marathon in honor of the late Robert J. Bluestone. The marathon was held at Rob’s home club, Rockrimmon Country Club. The marathon was held to help raise funds for an endowed scholarship in Bluestone’s name. With a long-term goal of $50,000 raised, the fund in Rob’s name will directly help to provide college scholarships for young men and women with financial need working in service to golf in the Met Area.
During the Monday marathon, Mahoney was able to speed around Rockrimmon three times, accumulating 54-holes in honor of Bluestone.
“Very few people have had a greater impact on my life, both personally and professionally, than Rob Bluestone,” said Mahoney. “To be able to honor him and help perpetuate his legacy through this endowed scholarship is something truly special. Having Rob’s name associated with higher education and helping youth caddies, two things he was extremely passionate about, is very fitting.”
Over many years, Rob, a long-time member and former Club President of Rockrimmon Country Club in Stamford, Connecticut, and Portmarnock in Ireland, had given tirelessly back to the game of golf through his volunteer work with the MGA, the WGA, and the WGA Caddie Scholarship Fund (WGACSF). He served on the WGACSF’s Board of Directors for 15 years and served as their President from 2011 to 2012. In 2017 he was the recipient of the Udo Reinach award for his outstanding demonstrable service and support of the Fund in the form of time, impact, and contributions. Through all of his volunteer work for the good of the game, Rob promoted, advanced and supported the traditions and values that golf has historically stood for. Each of the organizations he served were better because of his involvement.
