For the first time since joining the Golf Association of Philadelphia in 1921, Tavistock Country Club won the association's annual team matches championship last week. Led by Jamie Slonis, the 2002 Patterson Cup champion who shot 5-under-par 66 at Fox Hill Country Club, Tavistock racked up 92.75 points. That gave the club a commanding victory over Spring Ford Country Club (66.25), Fox Hill (59), and Lu Lu Country Club (56.75) in last Sunday's playoff. While credit was deservedly heaped on Tavistock's heavy hitters - Slonis, Bill McGuiness, Mike Tash and Sean Leonard, all top local amateurs - a special pat on the back also went to one other member of the club's squad, Wayne Roberts.

Meghan Bolger of Tavistock continued her drive toward a second consecutive Women's Golf Association of Philadelphia Amateur Championship with a quarterfinal victory over two-time amateur champion Nancy Porter yesterday at Merion Golf Club's East Course. Bolger, who played this spring as a senior for Tulane, defeated Merion's Porter, 2 up, to advance to a semifinal match with Alexandra Frazier of Gulph Mills, a 4-and-2 winner over Lynne Thomson of Sunnybrook. Porter trailed Bolger by four after 10 holes, but won four consecutive holes to tie the match after 14. "I played well on the front and sloppy on the back, but Nancy was steady all day," Bolger said.

Hampered by three double bogeys Tuesday in his second round, Temple's Brandon Matthews fell short in his bid to advance to match play in the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship in Newton, Kan.

A score of 5 over or better was needed to claim one of the 64...

From the street, the brick Cape Cod appeared rundown, hiding behind an old chain-link fence and an overgrown thicket. "The outside was really a mess," remembers Tom Leonard, who, with his wife, Kristina, toured the house in February 2007. Said Kristina: "The house was known in the neighborhood as the 'creepy home.' " Yet, once inside the corner, four-bedroom dwelling, the couple became smitten with its quaint character and knew this was the house that would be theirs as they started a life together.

Looking at the most recent U.S. census data for Tavistock, the smallest municipality in New Jersey, you might wonder whether a biblical plague had rolled through. Between 2000 and 2010, the census reports, the Camden County borough's population fell 79 percent, from 24 to five, and the number of homes went from seven to three. Standing on the driving range there last week - most of the quarter-square-mile town is taken up by the Tavistock Country Club - course superintendent Tom Grimac laughed when asked what disasters had befallen the place in the last decade.
