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.
“I am truly honored to receive this high honor,” Suzanne Noblett said. “Goldie was a pioneer, not only in our Midwest Section, but also nationally for the LPGA. Thank you to my peers and the LPGA for this honor; I have enjoyed serving my section and the LPGA, and I look forward to continuing to serve in the spirit of Goldie Bateson along with the many talented previous recipients of the award which bears her name.”
Suzanne Noblett has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 Goldie Bateson Service Award.
