Jean Bibby was known as “Miss Golf” in Cumberland and is considered the greatest woman golfer in Allegany County history. Between the years 1925 and 1976 Jean Bibby won a total of twenty Cumberland Country Club golf championships, in 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927, 1928, 1929, 1931, 1932, 1935, 1936, 1937, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1957, 1960, 1968, 1971, 1975, and 1976.

Remarkably, it was during this period, from 1938 to 1950, that she took time-off from the sport to raise a family. Bibby also competed and did well in many winter tournaments in Florida and state-wide events. A plaque in her honor at the Country Club describes her as having, “Excellence, Beauty, and Amazing Grace”.
