The San Saba Ladies Golf Association met April 19, 2012 to host the monthly Central Texas Traveling 4-Ball Tournament. There were 33 ladies participating from across central Texas representing nine clubs.
The ladies were welcomed by the president, Anita Miles, and then the traveling 4-ball chair, Sandee Hartley, gave the rules and called for tee time. The ladies were welcomed by Peggy Jones, our newest member, as she served the coffee, juice, and donuts. Peggy is certainly a working enjoyable member that is a real attribute to the organization and besides that she’s so much fun! We had winners! Jo Anne Hardy was on the first place team, Janet Hoyt on the second place team, Dorothy Sterner on the third place team, and Jo Ann Snow and Anita Miles tied for fourth place. Hattie Rogers and Sandee Hartley both had great rounds but their teams faltered. Pat Ribb joined the ladies later for fellowship. Pat is a great member, even though she no longer plays golf! The ladies were served Betty Ann’s famous chicken salad, homemade bread, and apple dumplings for lunch. Some clubs no longer do lunch, so San Saba is a favorite place to play because we have Betty Ann Johnson! So many ladies were complimentary of our course. The city of San Saba has made so many improvements and it is a beautiful golf course. They also were impressed with the beauty of our downtown area, with the new flags and beautiful planters and plants. Hats off to the Keep San Saba Beautiful organization! What a great job they do. We are also appreciative of our pro, Keith Harris. He helps in so many ways and is pleasant and efficient and has Crystal to support him and assist him. We are very blessed to live in San Saba, Texas because of the beauty of it and the beauty of the people who call San Saba home. The ladies worked the concession stand over the weekend as a money making project and had a great time selling sandwiches, brownies, deviled eggs, barbeque buns, sausage wraps, and tea. There were 191 players so they done good! See what your missing by not being at the San Saba River Golf Course just a ‘swinging!’
