John Nowobilski Retires!

By Bruce Berlet

John "Yo Pro" Nowobilski, one of the most respected and decorated pros in the history of the Connecticut Section PGA, was feted with a gala retirement party by more than 250 friends and family at The Hartford Club.

Nowobilski has been a PGA of America member for more than four decades, the last 35 years as the only head pro at Tallwood Country Club. His amateur and pro careers were remembered by 19 speakers, including his son Ryan and daughter Mary Kate, and Karney Ovian, the original Tallwood owner who hired John in 1982. Other notable dignitaries to speak included legendary retired CBS-TV golf commentator Ben Wright, former PGA of America president Jim Remy, former PGA Tour caddie Joe "Gypsy" Grillo, Section PGA executive director Tom Hantke, The First Tee of Connecticut executive director Mark Moriarty, Tallwood owner Mike McDermott, Zac Stennett, who will succeed John as Tallwood pro, and Nicole Damarjian, who will be returning to Tallwood as a teaching pro.

Other highlights included presentations by past president Phil Daly (Men's Club Distinguished Service Award), past president and Connecticut State Senator Steve Cassano (proclamation on John Nowobilski Day), past president Greg Garcia (first Life Membership in Tallwood history for John) and Rosie Hornyak and four other Tallwood Women's Club members signing a song that they composed and accompanied by singer and song writer John Colby and his three-piece band. Special recognition was given Colby, Mitzi Sansivero and Nancy Gworek of The Bizhub Image Center, a sponsor that produced pictures and a banner for attendees to sign, and Rob Tedoldi, managing director of the Infocus Financial Group, the event's major sponsor that donated $3,500 and 60 sets of golf towels and sleeves of golf balls as door prizes. Sansivero and Gworek won the grand prize of four tickets to the fourth round of the 2018 Travelers Championship, and the Wall of Champions in the Tallwood clubhouse dining area will be named in honor of John with a plaque.

John and committee members Mary Ellen, Ryan and Mary Kate Nowobilski, McDermott, Berlet, Ray Embury, Rob Tedoldi, and Elliot Solomon thank all who attended the party and made it a memorable event.

We will be adding more pictures and video over the next few weeks.
