Meet Reecy Casamajor

By Alejandra Duffy

As you can see, we are starting a new series on our blog to help you get to know our Board members. Maybe you already know some of them, but hopefully you will understand why the give so much time and love to our association after reading each of their stories.

Today, we are interviewing Reecy Casamajor, our Team Play Director. 

Background

I was born in Chico. I had three older brothers and now have four nephews and one niece who have now made me a great aunt ten times—six boys and four girls.

I went to Chico State and played field hockey, volleyball, basketball and softball. Golf was just not active enough for me.  I took a golf class as part of my physical education major, and when I hit a shot in from out in the fairway, I was hooked! I played quite a bit with my parents before I joined the Bennett Valley Ladies Club in 1977. There I heard about Pacific Women’s Golf Association and the tournaments it had to offer, both local and in other areas. I signed up for a few and had so much fun, I haven’t missed too many since.

Always active

I taught Jr. High Physical Education for thirty years in Healdsburg, and retired in 2005. I now work three days a week at Bennett Valley in the Pro Shop and officiate Jr. and Sr. High volleyball. I really enjoy working at the course. With volleyball, I get to keep in the sport without having the daily coaching that I did for thirty years.

Golf dreams

My dream foursome would be with Amy Alcott, Nancy Lopez, and Lexi Thompson. Amy and Nancy did so much for women’s golf... and Lexi is just AWESOME!

New challenges

I am starting my fifth year on the Executive Board—four as Redwood Area Director, and now the Team Play Director. My greatest accomplishment in golf is winning the Helen Lengfeld in 2010, I think. I also have won my club’s Championship at Bennett Valley twenty years in a row. Learning the new Golf Genius has been my latest challenge, but I am more comfortable with each tournament.
