Warren 'Rebbie' Rebholz
Rebholz, Warren "Rebbie" Rebholz, Warren, known as Rebbie passed away April 7, 2020 at age 92. He said "I've come to appreciate that 92 is actually a pretty good score." Having officiated at 15 consecutive U.S. Open Championships and many other USGA Championships, Rebbie wants everyone to realize excessive sadness, while understandable, will invite a General Penalty (Loss of Hole in Match Play, Two-Stroke Penalty in Stroke Play). Please adjust your play as necessary. Dad was preceded in death by his parents; Joe and Lydia Rebholz, his stepmother Hazel Rebholz and his daughter Cathy Lindquist. He is survived by his children; Bill and Joe Rebholz, Lavonne Rebholz who is the mother of their children, his brother George (Joanne) Rebholz and son in law Charles (Debbie) Lindquist. Dad was born in St. Paul in 1928 and graduated from Cretin High School in 1946. He was a good high school athlete especially in baseball and basketball, but it was in golf where he found his calling. As Executive Director of the Minnesota Golf Association (MGA), he spent most of his adult life as a golf official in Minnesota. As a volunteer and later as an employee, he accumulated 58 years of service with the MGA. He was one of the first members of Hazeltine National Golf Club, joining in 1961 and took us for picnics on the course as it was being built. He was fascinated with the place from the start and remained a member for the rest of his life. Achieving seven holes-in-one throughout his playing career, reveals quantity of rounds played and quality of play can lead to impressive results. He managed to sneak in an "ace" using a 1 iron from the back tee on the fourth hole at Hazeltine which he swears was just luck. As usual he downplayed the event but I have the club and it takes a lot of talent to get any decent reaction. Rebbie you were a great father who quietly tried to do the best you could and you were very successful. We wish you "perfect golf" and thank you for all you gave us. Donations or memorials are preferred to the Evans Scholars Foundation. Memorial service pending.
