WDCGA FALL LUNCHEON
The 2014 Fall Luncheon, a celebration of our 90th Anniversary, was held at Belle Haven Country Club on Wednesday, November 12th. Special guests included WDCGA Past Presidents and member Melly Tucker, President of the Women’s Division of the Maryland State Golf Association.
The Luncheon Program, 90 YEARS and "STILL PADDLING", recalled the legacy of independence and leadership the WDCGA has enjoyed and sustained throughout its long history. Our founders famously declared that they “would like to paddle their own canoe”. They began a tradition that has nurtured leaders in the world of local, regional and even national golf.
Luncheon speakers were our own WDCGA members Pat Kaufman and Diane Herndon. Pat told the story of the founding of the Maryland State Women’s Division in 1995. Diane described the next chapter in the story, currently being written with Diane’s election to the position of 9th Vice President of the Maryland State Golf Association, positioning her to become the first woman president of the MSGA.
The take home message from our inspiring speakers was clear. Today, 90 years later, the WDCGA is living the legacy of our founders -- still paddling, still making waves, and still improving the quality of golf for women.
The Luncheon closed with the presentation of the WDCGA Lifetime Achievement Award to member Shelley Savage, Army Navy Country Club. Shelley’s list of impressive victories in District, State and Regional tournaments and her personal leadership in the Virginia State Golf Association Women’s Division from 2003-2007 made her a unanimous choice to become only the second recipient of this prestigious award.
Looking Ahead to 2015…
