At the President's Cup tournament held on Monday September 19, 2022, we had a special celebration to honor Marion Hyde, the longest reigning CWGA member with 70+ years of membership. Marge Funk and Ellie Large created a slide show depicting Marion's long-tenured golfing career starting as a club champion at Chippanee all the way to her being a 2-time CWGA Legends Champion, with many other winning events along the way. CWGA honored Marion with a lifetime membership and free entry to the Medallion, President's Cup and Legends Championship for as long as she continues to play and knowing Marion, that could be MANY years. The CT State Assembly designated September 19, 2022 MARION HYDE DAY.
In addition to all of these honors, CWGA has created a new Marion Hyde Scholarship as an additive dimension to the PME Scholarship Fund. One may donate to the new fund online or by check.
