The annual meeting of the SBRMGA membership was held December 7, 2017. A special presentation was made to the family and friends of Bill Leach for his many contributions to golf at SaddleBrooke Ranch. In addition to excerpts from Bill’s yet to be published book other member tributes were read. Bill impacted many and his contributions will not be soon forgotten.
The annual awards for the most improved golfer for 2017 were presented. Carl Knight was recognized as the overall most improved golfer. The individual fight winners were Ron Noble, A flight; Sam Rossi, B flight; Alan Ness, C flight and Steve Kovach, D flight.
SBRMGA enjoyed increased membership in 2017 now totaling 150, increased sponsorship of the MGA, and increased participation by members in both the weekly and special events. These achievements are the result of the commitment of the board and members alike.
