February proved to be a very challenging month for the 40 Ranchette Putters who consistently showed up each Wednesday morning. Putting was often delayed because of frost, as February’s weather did little to improve SBR’s 18-hole green. In spite of these conditions, February was a qualifying month and many ladies received awards.

Each month, prizes are given out to putters with the first, second, and third lowest gross average scores, ladies who sink six or more holes-in-one, and putters with the first, second, and third lowest net average scores.

SBR Ranchette Putters is pleased to announce our February gross winners. Corky Mansmith had the third lowest gross average with 38.667. Gayle Richey landed in second place with a gross average of 38.333. The first place honors went to Sandy Getter, who had a gross average of 37.667 for the month.

Cheers and high fives always accompany every hole-in-one on the green. In February, the following winners were congratulated six or more times: Doris Carlin (10), Gayle Richey (7), Corky Mansmith (6), and Roxanne Watson (6).

The use of handicaps has allowed the club to recognize another tier of monthly winners. Third place went to Pam Engelhardt, with a net average of 38.033. In second place was Linda Sentivanac, with a net average of 37.600. Michelle Musgrove had the best net average with 37.433.

Ranchette Putters is proud of the dedication and talent shown by this month’s winners. The club invites all female residents of SBR to join us for a fun weekly event. Check out our bulletin board by the pro shop for more information, or contact Corky Mansmith at [email protected]
