Hampton Hills Golf & Country Club was buzzing yesterday with applause to honor Hamptons real estate power duo Susan and Matthew Breitenbach of the Corcoran group for the 9th Annual Hamptons Golf Classic founded by Zev Norotsky. The day-long charity golf tournament, hosted by 2007 U.S. Women’s Open Champion and 16-time LPGA Winner Cristie Kerr and benefited the Diamonds in the Rough Foundation which provides support to local charities and individuals in need.
It was all about the charity and about the golf at the event this year. All attendees enjoyed the course with Matthew Breitenbach telling me that, “Honestly, this is probably the nicest golf tournament I’ve ever been to. The way each hole was pampered really was amazing.”
During the tournament, New York Jets Center Nick Mangold was a site to see on the course, all 300 pounds of him. Inside near remarkable spread of catered food, Nick was ear to ear smiles. He’s kind of a hard guy not to like.
In the past the event has had celebrity guests that include Kelsey Grammer, Kyle MacLachlan, Russell Simmons, Billy Crudup, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Strahan, Anthony Anderson, James Lipton, John Starks, Fat Joe, Rocco DiSpirito, Dhani Jones, Justin Tuck, Chris Duhon, Marc Consuelos, Steven Klein, Lorraine Bracco, and Jill Zarin.
