Middlefield, CT—Lyman Orchards, an independently-owned family destination for over 275 years, is proud to announce that Marissa Kulig Crow—a coach at The Lyman Golf Center at Lyman Orchards—recently received the LPGA Northeast Section 2021 Teacher of the Year Award. This award is given by the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s LPGA Professionals membership.
A previous LPGA Northeast Section Teacher of the Year Award recipient, Kulig Crow has held numerous positions throughout her 27-year golfing career.

“I am truly honored to receive this award from the LPGA for the second time,” states Kulig Crow. “I also love teaching at The Lyman Golf Center; the people who come are extremely eager to learn—and the 36 holes of championship golf provide a truly fantastic setting in which to thoroughly enjoy the game.”

Meet The Chef

At nine years old, Ben Gaffney asked if he could work alongside his father, a chef, at Congress Rotisserie in New Haven. The elder Gaffney put the boy to work washing dishes for two years, in the hope that it would discourage his interest in the restaurant business.

But a calling is a calling. Ben Gaffney has spent his life since then pursuing the wonders of food, bringing Middlefield along for the ride as chef at Lyman Orchards since 2017.
