For those who don’t know who Bev Brown was, she was a staple in the Haggin Oaks Women’s Golf Club. Bev joined the HOWG about 20 years ago. After a few years she became the club’s Tournament Chair.
She was very dedicated and her duties included setting up their weekly tee times and creating their yearly calendar as well as being the point person between Haggin Oaks and HOWG. She held that position until she unfortunately became ill this past year.
Bev was known for her patriotism, she worked at McClellan Air Force Base before she retired. During her work years she played golf at the Air Force golf course, Lawrence Links, in North Highlands.
She was involved with a group called The Top Flight Club. If you spotted her in the parking lot, you would notice her golf stickers and a large “Support Our Troops” sticker plastered on her car bumper.
After Bev passed this last December, the Haggin Oaks Women’s Golf Club honored Bev through a $100 donation made to PGA HOPE in her name.
PGA HOPE has a group here at Haggin Oaks, so through the Morton Golf Foundation the club contributed the donation remembering Bev for her dedication and her patriotism.
Bev Brown will be deeply missed by many, including her friends of HOWG. She was a fantastic golfer and was always there to help.
A Memorial Tournament will be held this year for club members in her honor.
Special thanks to Elaine Cannon and HOWG Members for there contribution to today’s blog.
