History of the Rosemary Balsley Junior/Member Better Ball Tournament

established in 1976

Rosemary Balsley was a lifetime member at Highland Country Club. She was heavily involved in junior golf.It was imperative to her that girls should have just as much opportunity as boys. Her inspiration came from Patty Hinkel and Ginny Lancaster who were well known golfers at that time. That inspiration lead to the start of the Rosemary Balsley Junior-Member Better Ball Tournament.
