I am originally from southern Connecticut, where I began playing golf when I was about 7 or 8 – I consider myself lucky to have learned the game when I was young! My Dad was an avid golfer, and I always loved playing with him. My enjoyment for the game, and my respect for its ethics and etiquette came from my Dad. One of my best golf memories is how happy Dad was the day I beat him, scratch, on his own course!
I came to Vermont to attend UVM in the 70’s, and settled in the Burlington area after graduating. While I played golf quite a bit through high school, I then played sporadically until about 17 years ago, when rediscovered my love for the game. At that time, I was still living in the Burlington area and was a member of Kwiniaska for 8 years until I moved to Rutland in 2002 when I joined Proctor Pittsford.
Having played in several VSWGA State Amateurs in the late ‘90’s, I decided to join the VSWGA in 2005, which is when I began playing State Days. Since 2005 I have played in several Mid-Am and Senior Tournaments, have been on three Tri-State teams and have played in two NEWGA tournaments.
I was elected to the Board in October 2011, and was appointed Vice President at the Board Meeting a week later. I have also been a VSWGA Course Rater for four years, and have just completed the USGA Rules Seminar, which was a great experience!
When I am not playing golf, I enjoy spending time with my husband Bill and the rest of my family, including our two granddaughters (the “twin cousins”, born eight days apart in August 2009). I also run the Rutland Rocks Curling Club, which Bill and I started in 2008, during the winter months!
