The SaddleBrooke Ranch Women’s Golf Association hosted its fourth annual Sadie Hawkins Golf Tournament on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, with 62 golfers participating.

Sadie Hawkins Day is an American folk event and pseudo-holiday originated by Al Capp’s classic hillbilly comic strip Li’l Abner (1934–1978). This inspired real-world Sadie Hawkins events, the premise of which is that females ask males for a date or dancing. At SaddleBrooke Ranch the Sadie Hawkins Tournament format was a two-person best ball. The ladies invited a male resident (not their spouse) of the Ranch with a USGA handicap to participate as their partner.

Following the event golfers gathered for a luncheon, presentation of awards and door prizes.

Results of the tournament:

First Flight: first place, Mary Snowden and Pat Kelly; second place, Janice Mihora and Larry Tipton; third place, Trish Kelly and Mike Tomaso; fourth place, Jean Cheszek and Mike Ohanian, fifth place, Linda Sherfy and Guy Shelton.

Second Flight: first place, Cheryl Reddy and Neil Hartman; second place, Mindy Hawkins and Richard Osterlund; third place, Carole Ericksen and Mark Klicker; fourth place, Michelle Carter and Rick Snowden; fifth place, Kate Thompson and Karl Knight.
