Verde Sputters Update

BK Koch

Is Verde Sputters a putting club that likes to be social, or is it a social club that likes to putt? Inquiring minds want to know. Come and find out for yourself. It is every Monday morning at the SaddleBrooke One putting greens. Sign-up times start at 8 a.m. and putting is at 8:30 a.m. Please be sure to bring your water and sunscreen. For more information, contact Opal Larkin at 520-444-6308 or [email protected] or Judy Loritz at 520-818-2308 or [email protected].

The week of May 9, 34 Sputters and three guests had a fun morning of putting. Holes-in-one totaled 27, low score was 36, and there was one money hole winner. Cynthia Hauth was the low scorer. She received a pin when we met in June. The money hole winner was Mickey Levich, so see her if you need a dollar.

We say so long to Hazel Roper who will be joining as a Social Member this year. She leaves with a low score of 37. Marilyn Palatas and JoAnne Koblewski got a 39.

A pat on the back to the following who got three holes-in-one: Donna McPherson and Hazel Roper (she goes out with a bang!). Anne Maddox and Laurie Miller each got two holes-in-one. The hole-in-one recipients were Kathie Bigos, Donna Bujnovsky, Hilda Clyde, Cynthia Hauth, Janet Knowels, Virginia LaBar, Mickey Levich, Lydia O’Connor, Marilyn Palatas, Barb Rempel, Sheelagh Simpson, Sue Spaniol, Mary Vandermast, and two of our guests, Ann Williams and Dawn Hecht.

June 5 started off with 36 Sputters “sputting” on the “putting” green, getting 24 holes-in-one. Two were on the money holes. Linda Lewis got the low score of 38. Opal Larkin and Marilyn Palatas got 39s. Close behind were Laura Berkley and Cathy Howard who got her hole-in-one on the money hole. Kathie Roberts was our other money hole winner.

Our next luncheon is not until September, which we are anxiously awaiting. Luncheons are normally the first Monday of each month. In addition to luncheons, special events are planned:

Niners/Sputters Event: Oct. 24 (we host)

Sputters/Ranchettes: date TBD (they host)

Sputters/MountainView Putters: March, date TBD (we host)

See ya there!
