SBRWGA crowns 2018 champions


CJ Kerley

On April 23 and 24, the SBR Women’s Golf Association held its seventh annual Club Championship tournament. In order to be eligible to play in the Club Championship tournament, a member must have played and posted five SBRWGA play-day events within the prior twelve months to the entry date of the tournament. Winners of the tournament are based on the combined scores of two days. In addition to the Club Champion, this year members who were 70+ could also participate at the same time in the Senior Club Championship. Players were also grouped into flights by handicap and there were winners in each flight. All competed equally for the Par 3 “closest to the pin” both days.

Jean Cheszek won Club Champion for the second year in a row with a combined Low Gross score of 151. Marlyce Mycka won Senior Club Champion with a combined Low Gross score of 178. Congratulations to Jean and Marlyce for an outstanding job!

Winners of Flight 1: 1st Place, Barb Simms, 168; 2nd Place, Alex Anna, 169; 3rd Place, Trish Kelly. Flight 2: 1st Place, Sterlyn Robertson, 176; 2nd Place, Janice Mihora; 3rd Place, Cherly Reddy, 189. Flight 3: 1st Place, Jeanne Jensen, 184; 2nd Place tie, Linda Sherfy and Pilar Borm, 188. Flight 4: 1st Place tie, Sue Wells and Stephanie Gaskill, 199; 3rd Place, Susan Ness, 203.

Closest to the Pin Winners were Day 1: Hole No. 5 Susan Ness and Hole No. 14 Cheryl Reddy. Day 2 winners were Hole No. 2 Michelle Carter and Hole No. 12 Alex Anna. Each winner received a dozen golf balls. In addition, many members won fantastic door prizes including golf for four at multiple courses!

A huge shout-out goes to Jeanne Osterlund who organized the event with her committee Mindy Hawkins, Barb Simms, Gaye Ohanian, Linda Sherfy and Cheryl Reddy. In addition, we want to thank our SBR Golf Pros Mike Jahaske and Ken Steinke who created the Tournament Leader board, recorded the scores and helped make the tournament a huge success. And, of course, we send another big shout out to thank our sponsor Arizona Golf Cart Repair for their generous donation.

Our own Hacienda Club Bistro did a fabulous job providing a delicious taco bar luncheon with all the fixings, tortilla soup, salads and dessert. Thank you for a delicious lunch!

Congratulations to all who participated in this year’s Club Championship and Senior Club Championship! You made this year’s tournament fun and successful! It wouldn’t have happened without you!
