Inside the ropes at VEMA


Published:

VEMA past president Doug Diem died in December 2015.

On Jan. 7, the Viera East Men’s Golf Association held a moment of silence prior to Thursday’s league play to honor Doug Diem, one of the past presidents, who passed away on Dec. 5, 2015. 

Several members shared fond memories of Diem and noted how, as president, he was instrumental in keeping VEMA active. 

Diem lived in the Viera East Golf Course area and regularly played golf three to four times a week, often with partners Raj Patel and Jay Fields. Diem served as president from 2009 to 2011. 

All the members of VEMA extend deepest sympathies to his family.  

Winners of the first event of the year were Jim Smith, Dale Zeigler, David Horst and Phil Rooney.  Sam Speziale, Dale Zeigler, David Horst and Warren Powell won closest-to-the-pin.
