The SaddleBrooke Ranch Women’s Golf Association (SBRWGA) held its 2018 Telegraph Tournament on Tuesday, August 28. This tournament began years ago prior to many organized sport associations and when most players were unable to travel to competitions. Local competitions were held and the results were sent via telegraph to organizers to determine winners. Many Telegraph Tournaments were held in popular sports like swimming and track that were timed competitions.
Today our local Telegraph Golf Tournament is played at all Southern District Women’s Golf Association (SDWGA) clubs and scores are emailed to SDWGA so winners can be honored on their webpage.
Congratulations to Janice Mihora for winning the 2018 Telegraph Tournament with a net score of 68. Janice was awarded a telegraph replica trophy.
