The San Saba Ladies Golf Association met July 3, 2008 for the monthly business meeting. The meeting was called to order by the President, Anita Miles, and opened with prayer by Hattie Rogers. Hattie, the Secretary, then read the minutes and they were approved as read. The Treasurer, Bobbie Churchill, with apologies, will present the July financial report next month.
Jo Anne Hardy reported that James Stewardson has began the painting of the tables and benches.
Anita Miles presented the City T-shirts to the club and it was voted unanimously to purchase these shirts to represent San Saba in a fine fashion. They have the new City logo and are very appealing.
Sandee Hartley, the 4 Ball Chair, announced that the traveling 4 ball tourney will by July 15 at Hidden Falls. Other members present were: Dorothy Sterner, Jo Ann Snow, Pat Ribb and a special guest Pat’s daughter, Kathy Ribb from League City, Texas.
Kathy rode with her mother and perhaps critiqued her game and joined the ladies for lunch. Kathy has joined the ladies in the past and it was a treat to have her again.
This was the annual Flag Tournament. The Chair for July, Anita Miles, presented each lady with an American flag and they played the course and added the strokes of their handicap to the total and then planted their flag when they ran out of strokes. Four ladies finished the eighteen holes and progressed back to number one for a grand finale.
First place went to Sandee Hartley, who had a great round shooting an 87 for Low Gross and Low Net for the day! She got all the way to the third hole! Jo Anne Hardy was second, Dorothy Sterner was third and Jo Ann Snow finished her round on the first hole after completing the eighteen holes.
But the big win of the day, was when Dorothy Sterner chipped in to win the chip in pot! All the ladies were vying for this pot as there was over $14.00 in the pot. Good for Dorothy! It was a fun round of golf and kept the July 4th tradition in tact!
Our pro, Keith Harris, had a great weekend competing in the Taylor City Open Tournament. He won first place, shooting a 69 the first day and a 74 the second day. We are proud of our pro! Jerry Minter also entered the tourney and I’ve been told the slick greens were a mean problem for Jerry, who is a great golfer in his own right.
We had another great event at the course this past week when Justin Hallmark, eleven year old son of Sherry Hallmark, scored a hole in one! What a thrill for that young man. He used a 4 iron on hole #11, which is 110 yards, for this feat. Congratulations, Justin!
We have a few retired teachers and other ladies playing golf and this is their public invitation to join in with the Ladies Golf Association. We want you! We meet at 9:00 o’clock on Thursdays and play golf and have lunch together and we have all levels of ability. We guarantee you to have a good time and lots of “swinging!”
