Rebholz receives golf honors as Woman of the Year
space
Katie Curran Rebholz recently received an award as Northeastern Wisconsin Women’s Golf Association’s coveted “Woman of the Year.”

At an awards presentation, Amy Fronek, a spokesman for the association, had the duty to explain the background of the recipient while trying to keep her identity a secret.



Of course, anyone who knows her figured out quickly it was Rehbolz.

Fronek explained that Rebholz came from a golfing family, grew up directly across the road from the Antigo-Bass Lake Golf Course and played often. She left out the Bass Lake reference in a bid to retain that secret.



“She spent many hours a day on the golf course,” Fronek said, “she was able to play often.”



Since the Bass Lake course, where she cut her teeth in the sport didn’t have a juniors league, she was a member of adult ladies group at the age 12, and won the championship that year.

Over the years she has won dozens of club championships, played in the association’s tournaments and served as the organization’s president.

Rebholz also participated in the Channel 7 Golf Tournament winning the title several times.

In her professional life she was a teacher and coach of volleyball and basketball at the Wauwatosa East High School, taking teams to state championship titles in both sports.

She was inducted into the Wauwatosa East Hall of Fame and the Wisconsin Basketball Hall of Fame.

She has retired after those accomplishments and successes, and spends her spring, summer and fall in the same spot she was raised, just across the road from the golf course.

Of course, she continues to golf, and does it very, very well.
