With Saddened Hearts

Today is not a good day for our members sadly we have lost one of our treasured gems. Our beautiful supportive and a most generous lady Kath McCraken has passed away this week. Our deepest condolences to her family, friends and fellow golfers.

Kath was one of our life members and also a past Lady President and Lady Captain having won both C and B Grade Championships. Kath also represented our Pennant Team in the Dalhousie District competitions.

Kath having been a very keen player over the years has sponsored along with her family trophies for the Mary Walker Memorial Day (Mary being Kath’s sister) Courtesy of Kath, a gorgeous hand painted vase trophy is proudly displayed in our trophy cabinet for the Mary Walker Memorial. Kath has also sponsored the B Grade Championship trophy, Birdies and Gobblers trophies for many years with plates etc all being hand made and painted. It is only of recent years that she had elected to purchase trophies instead.

We will miss the company of Kath especially on our special days, tournaments, memorials and other various special competition days when we would invite her and other special members to join us for lunch and presentations she was a joy to know. RIP our beautiful lady.
