The Goldie Bateson Service Award was established in 1992 in recognition of the unlimited and outstanding service, time and dedication demonstrated by Goldie Bateson to the LPGA Midwest Section, the LPGA, and the game of golf.
Goldie was an active member of the LPGA and the first President of the Midwest Section. She was one of the original T&CP members who helped to provide the structure for our organization by developing the Constitution and By-Laws, the testing of teachers, establishing the different sections, and everything else to get the T&CP started.
Congrats to our instructor Maria Palozola, who has been selected as the 2015 recipient of the Goldie Bateson Award. We are proud of her and her great impact in golfing community. Please read more about Maria and her accomplishment HERE.
