Over British Columbia’s 125 year history of women’s golf there have been many great champions – Violet Pooley, Vera Hutchings Ford, Margaret Todd, Gayle Hitchens, Borthwick, Marlyn Palmer O’Conner, Gail Harvey Moore, AJ Eathorne plus many more.
Dawn Coe’s career spanned the amateur ranks plus the LPGA Tour. Dawn’s record in women’s professional golf has not been equaled by another BC woman to date.
All aspiring young women golfers from British Columbia have a daunting task to match Dawn’s incredible accomplishments.
