Boys from the 1st Hole Golf League
The league was founded in 1990 by Rich McSpedon and Walter Ineson. Most of the 32 members were born and raised in Yonkers, New York, and they play at the Dunwoodie Golf Course. Dunwoodie is a public course managed by Westchester County and it is located on Yonkers Avenue off of the Saw Mill River and Cross County parkways. The purpose of this blog is to post specific league news, general golf news, and reviews of golf courses and equipment.

2013 North Yonkers Scholarship Foundation + 5 times $5 = $27.50
*** begin quote ***
Walter “Goose” Ineson was another sportsman from North Yonkers who was a sandlot baseball star at Lennon Park. He attended Sacred Heart Elementary School, Gorton High School, and Manhattan College. While in the Air Force, he learned to play golf and he later founded the Boys from the First Hole Golf League with Richie “Gook” McSpedon. He also assisted Gianelli with the creation of the North Yonkers Scholarship Foundation and the golf outing during his lifetime.
An engineer by trade, a great golfer due to constant practice and reflective study, and humanitarian by nature, Ineson was one of the kindest and supportive people one could ever meet. Last night, Bill Regan, a former deputy mayor of Yonkers, and a golf league member himself, indicated that the league lost some of its collective mojo and a little bit of its spiritual soul when Ineson went to heaven.
Not surprisingly, Ineson was a close friend of both Gianelli and Lewer.
