You may know that the ladies were admitted in RI in 1989.

For instance the first mixed Rotary Club in Switzerland was founded in 1990. It was the club of RC Montagne Neuchâteloise, near La Chaux-de Fonds. Nathalie Nussbaumer was a founder member of her club on 5.6.1990 and she was also the first Lady Golfer participating in the Swiss IGFR Championship in 1992 in Crans-Montana. She is among the three ladies having participated for the first time at the IGFR world championship in Birmingham/UK (the Belfry).

One of the other two ladies is Heidemarie Wiesenfeller, Muenchen/Germany, Partner of Fridolin Häring, president of the organizing committee of the world championship in Bad Griesbach/ Germany, in 1997.

The third lady was Gayle McConnel, Monterey, California, USA.

All three did well:
Gayle, Hcp 18, Div. 2 had a 4-day total of 364 points = average 91 net points
Nathalie, Hcp. 25, Fellowship Div. - had a 4 day total of 116 stableford points (average: 29 points)
Heidemarie, Hcp. 24 had a 4 day total of 85 points.
Well done ladies!

After several attempts of trying to contact Gayle McConnel, unfortunately, no contact with Gayle could be established. If an of you would know her address, please let us know or bring her in contact with us.

Though RI never celebrated the 20 years of Lady Rotarians, IGFR will give special thoughts in 2014 to mark the occasion of 20 years of ladies in IGFR.

The following Lady Rotarian Golfers have participated in

Paris 2010: Basso Monique; Chung Kwang Jin, Gathof Birgit, Güntermann Christa, Kruyt Francine, Lewis Lynn, Mackenzie Millie, Shin Jay, Smith Valery, Van Buel Anne and Wiesenfeller Heidemarie.

Pinehurst 2011: Braswell Jeanette, Byrnes Linda, Collins Barbara, Lewis Lynn, Mackenzie Millie and Welte Marianne.

We do hope to welcome at the world championship in Crans-Montana 2012 many more Lady Rotarian Golfers, and of course, also the partners of our Rotarian Golfers from all over the World.
