Cora Jane Blanchard

Blanchard, has truly exemplified the spirit of the award through her volunteering efforts, achievements and appointments in support of the game on both the local and national levels. Blanchard,  who was the chairperson of the United States Golf Associations’ Women’s Committee in 2002, has been volunteering in numerous capacities for more than two decades. In 1979 she was nationally recognized as the chairperson of the 3rd U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship held at Braemar Golf Club in Edina, Minn.  Since then, Blanchard, a member of Braemar GC, has served on the USGA Women’s Amateur Public Links Committee, Public Golf Committee, Sectional Affairs Committee, and Bob Jones Award Committee. “I’ve just had a really good time for the last quarter century,” noted Blanchard in reference to her role as a volunteer on the local and national level. The Warren J. Rebholz Distinguished Service Award was established in 1994 to honor individuals who, through their actions, have exemplified the spirit of the game at its highest level and who have made a substantial contribution to the game in Minnesota, or on a national level or international level.
