After the holiday season of 2020, SaddleBrooke Women’s Golf Association-18 (SBWGA-18) welcomes in the new year of 2021 with a new series of weekly games on Tuesday mornings, our regularly scheduled event and meeting days. The Tuesday Play Day Committee already has a full complement of games planned.
Our Special Tournaments Chair, Reva Stolpe, begins 2021 with another major tournament—The Presidents’ Cup. Not associated with the biennial international PGA tournament, SBWGA-18’s Presidents’ Cup is a match play tournament. The winners of matches between two players, one from both sides of a roster previously determined by Reva, go on to the next round, until the ultimate match is played between the winners of each side. The matches begin in late January, with the final match in early February.
Also coming up in January, SBWGA-18’s Gross and Net Overall Ace of Ace’s represent SBWGA-18 in the State Medallions Tournament held in the Phoenix area. Our ACE Day of December 2020 was played only by all the monthly Low Gross Score winners and monthly Low Net Score winners.
January: Gross, Shawna Ianson and Net, Connie Culley
February: Gross, Brenda Brown and Net, Cinda Haugsby
March: Gross, Judy Melo and Net, Judy Briney
April: Gross, Becky Hubbard and Net, Nancy Wyllie
May: Gross, Reenie Romey and Net, Barb Verbus
June: Gross, Molly Fullerton and Net, Mary Floerke
July: Gross, Kerry Crowell, and Net, Vernie Tupa
August: Gross, Debbie Green and Net, Phyllis Sarrels
September: Gross, Carol Bidwell and Net, Bonnie Westra
October: Gross, Maire Ryan and Net, Lee Anne McClelland
November: Gross, Takeyo Eakin and Net, Gail Plimpton
The December competition of only winners determined the Overall Ace of Ace’s Winners for 2020. Gross Champion: Molly Fullerton and Net Champion: Nancy Wyllie. Congratulations, ladies.
However, due to prior commitments, neither Molly nor Nancy can play in the State Medallions Tournament. Our second place winners, Judy Melo for Gross and Jean Molitor for Net, will represent SBWGA-18 in Phoenix.
SBWGA-18 looks forward to a full year of golf, a game that brings us together in friendship. We also wish to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Jane Chanik, newly named Head Golf Pro for SaddleBrooke One Golf.
It’s time to tee up!
