The San Saba Ladies Golf Association met July 7, 2011 for the monthly business meeting with the President, Anita Miles, calling the meeting to order and opening the meeting with prayer by Hattie Rogers. In the absence of the Secretary, Jo Anne Hardy, there were no minutes. The president gave the financial report in the absence of the Treasurer, Bobbie Churchill. The Traveling 4-Ball Chair announced that the July tournament will be July 21, 2011 in Fredricksburg, Texas. The update on Becky Hardin was good. She is recovering from her back surgery but still hasn’t gotten to move back to her home, which was flooded while she was in the hospital from a water leak. What an ordeal for Becky. But she came to play day last week and rode with the ladies for a few holes and we enjoyed her company. Health issues are our demons and is why we are so small in numbers but long on companionship.
The Chair for July, Sandee Hartley, called for a game of ‘Pink Ball’ which is team play rotating the pink ball. The team of Anita Miles, Dorothy Sterner, and Hattie Rogers defeated the team of Sandee Hartley, Janet Hoyt, and Jo Ann Snow, as a result of that team loosing their pink ball in the water hazzard on hole #18. Dorothy Sterner had her day in the sun, having her best round of the summer, winning the chip in pot, splitting the putt pot with Anita Miles, scoring the Low Net for the day, and being on the winning team! Great going, Dorothy! Janet Hoyt scored the only birdie of the day and Sandee Hartley scored the Low Gross for the day.
The ladies met on June 30, 2011 for play day with the Chair for June, Jo Anne Hardy, calling for the game ‘Best at Something’ which gives you a point for being in the fairway, being on the green in regulation, and a one putt and subtracting a point for loosing your ball, being in a hazzard, and a three putt. First Place went to Sandee Hartley who also scored the Low Gross for the day and won the putt pot. Dorothy Sterner won second and Low Net for the day. Janet Hoyt and Jo Ann Snow also played to round out the game.
I got a great golf story report this week. Rick and Sandra Baskin were playing in a Fletcher Family Reunion Tournament of best ball and Sandra hit her usual long long drive on #18 and Rick then preceded to hit over the water and into the hole for a double eagle! Wow! Or it is sometimes called an albatross. Very impressive and I’m willing to say probably a first on the San Saba River Golf Course, as it is one of our longest and hardest holes. The Baskins are both great golfers and past Club Champions! When I grow up I want to hit just like Sandra Baskin! So I’d better get busy and do lots more ‘swinging!’
