After the voting, Jack spoke briefly about the association’s accomplishments during 2014, including growth from 78 to 92 members, later winter start times, participation in the Pima Cup and other annual special events, the recent vote on changing play days and other items. Mike Jahaske, Club Pro, spoke to the club about recent course issues, reviewed the new rate sheet options and then answered questions. George Kramer reviewed the website status.
To close the meeting and the year, Rick Snowden presented awards for most improved member golfers in 2014. In the A through D flights, Bill Moore, Mark Martin, Mike Sosin and Chuck Baker were the most improved, respectively. Mike Sosin won the award for the most improved overall.
Generally, the association’s purposes are to stimulate and maintain interest in golf at SaddleBrooke Ranch and to promote good fellowship among the members. The members play year-round on Thursday mornings at the SBR golf club course. All levels of skill are accommodated.
