RRLGA celebrates its 3rd annual Member/Guest tournament

Candy Burtis

March 9 and 10 were absolutely gorgeous days as 37 RRLGA members rounded up their partners to play in the third annual member/guest tournament. This year’s theme was “Howdy Pardner,” and players definitely got into the Western spirit. Guests came to the Ranch from near and far; for some this was their first time playing, while others returned to enjoy the festivities again.

Monday afternoon the ladies were assigned a partner as two-person teams competed in a “horserace.” Each team decided who would tee off on the first tee, then played alternate shot for four holes. At the end of each hole, teams having the highest scores were dropped, and the others continued to the next hole. Then on Buttes no. 7, Margie Kerr and Sandy Horazuk emerged as the winners! After the horserace the ladies enjoyed a delightful cocktail party in the Hermosa Ballroom and patio area.

Tuesday morning the RRLGA gals “saddled up” with their guests to play a two-person best ball format. Several teams dressed in western outfits and decorated their carts! Pro Jay Wilson even got into the act wearing his cowboy hat, jeans and boots!

Golf was followed by a delicious lunch and entertainment by Robson’s very own Cactus Blossoms. There was a lot of fun, visiting and laughing going on while everyone ate, and door prizes were given. Winners were then announced, and pictures were taken ending another successful member-guest event!
