Due to a surprise snowfall that closed the golf course, Ranchette Putters had to delay welcoming their new board. The ladies meet every Wednesday morning on the 18-hole putting green to test and improve their skills. Laughter, encouragement and hearty congratulations are often heard during their sessions. Putting is always followed by social time, including monthly meetings.

On January 9 Ranchette Putters welcomed the following enthusiastic volunteers, our board for 2019: President, Jacque Hendricks; Vice President, Linda Sentivanac; Secretary, Sandi Fredrickson; Treasurer, Dianne Bradley; Statistician, Doris Carlin; Membership, Cindy Watkins and Events, Irene Keil.

Our club also hosted a co-ed group from Robson Ranch and enjoyed a session of sunset couples golf with our own spouses/friends. Independence Day and Halloween were celebrated with holiday obstacles decorating the course. Several continental brunches included presentations by our sponsors.

Finally, SBR Golf Pros Mike Jahaske and Ken Steinke provided a Putting Clinic that included a group lesson and one-on-one training. 2018 proved to be a banner year, full of fun activities arranged by our tireless outgoing board. Congratulations to all of them on a superb job.

Ranchette Putters welcomes our new sponsor, Lazy Boy, and continues to offer special thanks to our continuing sponsors: Oracle Land & Title, The Sell, Buy & Rent Team, Les and Leslie Brown; Safco, Eckmeyer Insurance Services, Charlotte Eckmeyer; New York Life, Dennis Eckmeyer; Oakley Signs & Graphics, Ken Levitt; and Patrick Schaffer, DDS. Their contributions help make our events possible.

Ranchette Putters welcomes guests and new members. The club putts on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 a.m. No experience is necessary, just a golf ball, putter and desire to socialize.
