Goldie Bateson 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.
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.
“Rita has done all this and more as a very involved LPGA T&CP Member who has given six years of service as the Midwest Section President,” said LPGA T&CP National President Deb Vangellow. “She gave freely of her time, talents, and expertise to the Midwest Section and to the entire organization as a valuable member of the Executive Committee. Thank you and congratulations to Rita Reasons!”
