Giants, Bengals, and Housewives, oh my! The gorgeous Hampton Hills Golf Club opened its doors for Zev Norotsky's 7th annual Hamptons Golf Classic honoring Gary DePersia this week. With 36 foursomes and clear skies, not to mention massages on the links, pro ballers and corporate powerhouses enjoyed the greens as well as cocktails at the turn.
Bedecked in the most stylish golf attire New York Giants #1 draft-pick Prince Amukamara, Bengals linebacker and author Dhani Jones, ESPN's Jay Williams, and "The Real Housewives of New York City" star Ramona Singer and her husband Mario Singer all hit the greens to benefit the Southampton Day Care Center. Also spotted duffing around were Pacha owner Eddie Dean, Mark Selden, Dan Perna of Jet Demands, and Larry Marchini III who were vying for this year's trophy, watches from Frederique Constant and limited edition cashmere sweaters from Magaschoni.
For his tireless work in the business community DePersia, Senior Vice President of The Corcoran Group, was honored and remarked after the 18th hole, "It was a great day on a great course!" Echoing that sentiment was club member Ronnie Rothstein of Kleinfeld, and better known to many as one of the stars on TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress." With Frank Jedda, Director of Kleinfeld Men, keeping a watchful eye, Rothstein assisted in measuring participants for custom shirts and suits. Jedda was quick to point out with a laugh that men "have a lot to learn when it comes to finding the right fit" for their clothes unlike the ladies.
Throughout the course sponsors arranged ingulgent experiences for the golfers including Davidoff with representatives on hand to clip a few Zino Platinum cigars, Zico Coconut Water and Pernod Ricard USA who kept everyone "hydrated, Jet Demands, Evidens De Beaute, Hamptons Magazine, Brenda Waites Bolling Millinery Boutique, and Soft Serve Fruit Co. whose refreshing chilled confection was a delight in the heat of the day. Land Rover and Jaguar of Southampton sponsored this year's hole in one challenge where there were a few close calls but, alas, no winner.
Until next year, keep it on the fairways and aim for the green!
