Mrs. Dewey (Ruth) Busch
Tacoma (WA) City Champion
On a refreshing Monday morning, August 21, 1933,
seventy-four women teed off at Allenmore in the 18-hole
qualifying round of the first tournament held by the
Washington State Women's Public Links Association.
Ruth Busch was the first to sign up for the tournament
and the first to tee-off. In the qualifying round she was
medallist, finishing two strokes Madonna Haubner, who
was then Allenmore champion. In the 36-hole final on Friday,
Ruth defeated Madonna, 6 and 5. Ruth Busch wound
up being a three-time champion in 1933, 1934, and 1935.
