Congratulations Audrey Crow on becoming a Life Member of Women’s Golf Central North Coast.
In 1961 Audrey joined Liverpool Golf Club located at Casula. This was one of the first Clubs to allow Lady Members to play on Saturdays and to wear shorts and long socks in a competition.
In 1964 Audrey joined Rugby League Country Club at Narellan when it first opened and the dress code was the same as Liverpool. During Audrey’s 20 year’s membership at RLCC she held positions as Committee person, Assistant Handicap Manager, Vice-Captain and Ladies Captain. Audrey also played Pennants in the Nepean Illawarra District.
During this time Audrey also became a member of Bankstown Golf Club and Ryde Parramatta Golf Club playing on Sundays.
In 1984 Audrey moved to the Mid North Coast and became a members of both Wingham and Taree Golf Clubs. Audrey represented Wingham at both Pennants and Assef Bowl and served on the Taree Committee for a year.
Audrey joined Forster Tuncurry Golf Club in 1989 and is still a playing member. During this period Audrey served as Lady Captain on 2 separate occasions over a period of 6 years and also on the Board of Directors for 5 years.
In 1966 GNSW commenced courses for Rules Accreditation and she was the first member of FTGC to become an Accredited Rules Official.
In 2002 Audrey was invited to attend the NSW Golf Open at Horizons Resort as a “Walking Rules Official” for the four rounds. On the final day Audrey had the honour of walking with the leading players group.
Audrey joined WGCNC Committee in 1993 and has served on Committee on 2 separate occasions, holding positions of Chair of Match, Assistant Treasurer and Treasurer which position she held for 5 years until her retirement in 2008. During this time Audrey played Pennants for FTGC and also represented the CNC at all the Southern District matches.
Following Audrey’s retirement from WGCNC she suggested to the Committee that she would be willing to stay on as a co-opted representative, which CNC agreed to and has continued until 2018 as an assistant Pennant Advisor, when after a lot of deliberation decided that she would retire from the position which she really loved.
When President Kay Woolcock announced Audrey’s retirement from the Pennants at Tuncurry Open Day, many players thanked Audrey for her dedication to CNC and Pennants and said she would be missed.
Audrey is a very worthy Life Member of Women’s Golf Central North Coast, in recognition of the past 57 years which she has devoted to Golf and the administration thereof in numerous Clubs and particularly the last 25 years to WGCNC.
