From Plandome to Hobe Sound, a Legacy worth Remembrance
Charles John Andromidas was a well-known and respected figure in the golfing community, particularly in Plandome Long Island and Hobe Sound, Florida. He was a co-founder of the Hobe Sound Golf Club and served as the previous Chairman of Athletes Against Cancer. Additionally, he was the President of Plandome and was remembered for his successful efforts in bringing the Presidents Cup back after it had been missing for 45 years.
On April 15th, 1988, Charles was one of the founding members of the Hobe Sound Golf Club and sunk the first hole-in-one on hole 17 at the course. He passed away in 1997 due to cancer, but his legacy lives on. It is said that his son, Randolph Pope Mills III, witnessed his last round of golf, four months before his passing. On this round, Charles shot a 78 on his 80th birthday.
Throughout his life, Charles was active in the golfing community and made a significant impact. He was a member at Shinnecock and won several golf matches, including the Long Island Amateur in 1964. In addition to his golfing achievements, Charles was also remembered for his kindness and generosity.
Charles passed away in 1997, surrounded by his family, and is survived by his wife Nancy, his sons Charles Jr., Chris and Tom, his step-children Randy, Stephen, and Monica Mills, and his grandchildren Katherine and Alexandra Andromidas, Randy, Lynsay, Christopher, Courtney and Jonathan Mills. In lieu of flowers, his family requested that donations be made to the Ahepa Cooley's Anemia Foundation.
