Golf on 6, Mahopac

*** begin quote ***

Everyone is welcomed at Golf on 6 Indoor Golf Center.

There are people that come in just to have some fun with friends and more serious players that want to sharpen their techniques. With three golf stimulators and a friendly atmosphere, the Route 6 location has quickly made a name for itself among golfing circles.

“You see all different types of players,” co-owner Dino Odoardi said.

The store opened Feb. 1, though for the first ten days people from the community were welcomed to come in and try the virtual courses free of charge. On Feb. 11, the first official day for business, customers kept flocking in to get some swings in while the weather is still too frigid and snowy to play outside. Odoardi, Jerry Delbene and Joe Vittoria, three buddies that play golf together, own the business.

*** and ***

The three men, all graduates of Manhattan College, have known each other for decades, with Vittoria and Delbene first cousins and Odoardi and Vittoria brother-in-laws. The three have bonded over golf, playing on local courses for 20 years.

*** and ***

Golf on 6 is located at 250 Route 6 in Mahopac and its phone number is 845-533-5335.

Dear John,

I believe that Dino is a member of the Class of 1980, and Joe is a member of the Class of 1984. I do not find anything in my ‘stuff’ for Jerry.
