Niners Name State Medallion Winners

Dian Kupper

Pandemic, what pandemic? The SaddleBrooke Niners continue to enjoy golf with friends despite the challenges we are all facing. We are so glad that the RoadRunner Grill has opened for breakfast. Quite a few niners are enjoying congregating while observing social distancing on the patio. We thank the servers and cooks for their work during this challenging time.

The nominating committee has already begun soliciting members for 2021 officers. We have such a giving group of niners who are always ready to volunteer to guide our club each year. They encourage anyone who is interested in running for office to contact the committee.

The State Medallion Tournament is a challenge as it has both a low gross and a low net winner and is contested on four dates beginning in February and ending in May. The State Medallion Winners for 2020 are: Low Gross- Debbie Thompson-94 and Low Net – LeAnn Ellingtonson- 66. The scores were determined by the best two out of four play days. Congratulations to these two ladies.

A special congratulations goes out to Sheryl Nugent who scored a hole-in-one during the July 3 Red, White, and Blue Scramble. She hit from the aqua tee on SaddleBrooke hole number six with a five wood. The hole was in the middle of the green. This is a tough hole just to get on the green, so a hole-in-one is a great achievement.

Here’s hoping that the next several months will allow us all to return to a semblance of normalcy.
