February and March Madness at SBWGA

Carmela Pankey

February and March are a couple of the best months in the year to play golf here at SaddleBrooke. Except for a few frost delays here and there in February, the weather has been ideal. It’s also “more the merrier” with the winter visitors adding to the enjoyment.

Congratulations going out to Geri Sandilands, 2016 President’s Cup Champion. Geri your name is coming up so often in the winner circle, you may have to start signing autographs and giving press conferences. Close behind in second place is Gloria Eby. Debra Finn took third and Gail Plimpton placed fourth. All of you must be proud of yourselves for your efforts. We sure are proud of you.

Wanda Day had the thrill of achieving her first hole-in-one on Thursday, March 3. SaddleBrooke hole No. 6 will always hold a special place in her heart.

Huge congratulations to Bonnie Barker, 2016 Club Champion and Phyllis Sarrels, 2016 Senior Club Champion. The theme of the tournament was Renowned Golf Courses which added an extra measure of prestige to the play. You ladies are renowned in our eyes. The Club Championship after-party held at Kay Kunze’s home was a blast with great food, friends and a lot to celebrate. Thanks, Kay, for opening your home and for your hospitality.

The Cancer Tournament in July will also be discussed at the meeting. We partner with the Lady Niners which is always fun. There will also be a surprise guest speaker and a great lunch, too.
