ALBIN EDWARD SAIS
Albin Edward Sais, a widely respected golf professional who maintained a family home at Tocaloma, died last Thursday in a local hospital following a series of coronary attacks. He was 71.
Born in San Rafael in 1900 to a pioneer Marin family Sais became a pioneer in his own right following a career in the golfing field before it became the popular sport it is today.
He began as a caddy at the old Marin Gold Club, later becoming a pro at several clubs throughout the bay area first serving at the California Golf Club in San Francisco. Sais was appointed head pro at both the Berkeley Country Club and the Mira Vista Golf and Country Club. After serving 40 years at Mira Vista he was honored as the Club’s “golf pro emeritus” in 1966.
Sais was a member of the Thousand Oaks Lodge No. 478 Free and Accepted Masons and the National and California chapters of the Professional Golfers Association.
He is survived by his wife, Jeri Sais of Tocaloma; a son, Albin E. Sais Jr. of San Pablo; a daughter, Karin Cooper of Detroit; a sister, Violet Haller of San Rafael, and two granddaughters, Gail and Judy Sais of San Pablo.
