May 31, 2008 the San Saba Golf Course was an array of white balloons and ribbons and all the trimmings for the wedding of Keith Harris, our golf pro, and Crystal Bauerschlag. The bride was escorted in a beautifully decorated golf cart across the bridge of the 18th hole along with the children of the couple and presented to the groom on the 18th hole green where Bro. Tom Brand united the couple in marriage. After the ceremony the guests were served a delicious barbecue dinner prepared by Tony Cantu and his group. There was music and cake and a host of golfing friends and family to celebrate this happy occasion! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Keith Harris!
The San Saba Ladies Golf Association met May 22, 2008 for play day. Before play the ladies had special prayers for Pat Ribb’s son, Fred Ribb, who is having health problems.
The Chair for May, Bobbie Churchill, called for a game of flighted play with heads up golf. Sandee Hartley defeated Anita Miles by one stroke and also scored the only birdie of the day in the first flight and Becky Hardin was also in this flight.
Bobbie Churchill was first in the second flight, defeating Dorothy Sterner and Hattie Rogers.
Jo Ann Snow was first in the third flight, defeating Nell McHorse and Pat Ribb.
Sandee Hartley scored the low gross for the day and Jo Ann Snow low net.
The ladies met for play day on May 29, 2008 with Bobbie calling for a game of pink ball (you rotate the ball to each player for a total team score). All three teams lost their pink ball so the game reverted to low score. The low scoring team of Bobbie Churchill, Anita Miles, and Jo Ann Snow won first. Second place was the team of Becky Hardin, Dorothy Sterner, and Jo Anne Hardy. Sandee Hartley, Hattie Rogers, and Nell McHorse made up the third team.
Anita Miles had the low gross and low net for the day and scored a birdie. Dorothy Sterner also scored a birdie.
If you haven’t noticed, the red markers, which are bird houses, have been painted and look marvelous thanks to Jim and Sandee Hartley. They originally built the bird houses and keep them in mint condition simply because they are good citizens and love the golf course. It is people like the Hartleys that have made our course what it is today.
It’s just a great beautiful place to be “swinging!”
