Second annual Pilam Golf Outings – Teeing up in Philly, Florida and Ohio
In August, more than 150 brothers teed off another year of organized golf-like activity in the name of brotherhood. This year was a true shotgun start with duffers in three regional outings spanning the east in Philly, Florida and Ohio.
