The 1954 golf season for the women of Wanango Country Club opened officially Tuesday afternoon with a luncheon in the club rooms. The 4 club, 9-hole event, scheduled yesterday was postponed due to the heavy rain storm so the afternoon was spent socially indoors. Prior to the rain, the women golfers, shown in the photo, were paired at the tee. In charge of registrations was John Loeffler, pro of the club, who is shown seated with Mrs. Ruth Ann Ramage, and Mrs. Wilber Metz, general chairman for the season. A mixed tournament is planned for 1 p.m. next Tuesday, May 4, on the club greens, with mixed pairing of A and B division members.
