There were only 31 participants in the Club Championship but it was a great two day event, ending on Sunday with the dinner and annual meeting. The Chairman of the Advisory Board, Bubby Adams, gave a welcome speech and complimented the city on what a great job they are doing with the improvements to the San Saba River Golf Course. He also gave much deserved credit for the condition and improvement of the course to our golf pro, Keith Harris. He also thanked the Ladies Association for all they have done through the years for the San Saba River Golf Course and announced that Larry and Becky Hardin have very generously donated the funds for a second fountain to be installed in the pond on the #5 hole and thanked the Hardins! The Chair then went over the new rules that the board and the city have sanctioned to begin January 1, 2010. However, some of the rules, as the Chair announced, will begin immediately, such as the cart trail rules. You must use the ninty degree rule and the distance from the greens and tee boxes and sign in for play. These rules have always applied but the members have become lax and now we expect every member to make a real effort to adhere to these rules for the betterment of the golf course.
The meeting was concluded with a delicious dinner of pork steaks, beans, potato salad, green salad, rolls, and bananna pudding! Betty Ann Johnson and her son, Tommy Johnson, were the caterers. We are so fortunate to have Betty Ann to always be there to prepare our meals. She does it with such grace and ease! She’s always smiling and in a good humor and her food is always the best! Hats off to Betty Ann!
