Our 125th Anniversary Dinner was the perfect place to honor those players who have excelled in each of their divisions throughout the 2022 season. 3 of the winners were on hand to be honored at the dinner November 9th at Huntingdon Valley Country Club.
Class A: Karen Siegel, Commonwealth National Golf Club
This is Karen’s first time with the honor. She had an impressive year, winning the Nancy Wilbur Invitational and Florence Vanderbeck Invitational. She finished 2nd individually in the Ellen Gowen Hood Shield, 3rd in the Nonna Barlow and Dorothy Porter, 4th in the Tournament of Champions, and 6th in the Mary Thayer Farnum Cup. Karen’s points earned put her 140 points ahead of runner-up, Samantha Perrotta (Philmont).
Class B: Anne Flink, Talamore Country Club
This is Anne’s first time winning as well. She played consistently throughout the season, winning with her partner at the Effie Derr Robey Cup and winning individually at the Class B 1st Stroke Play. Second place finishes in the Class B Championship and the Charles S. Powell Cup secured the Player of the Year honor for Anne. Anne finished 45 points ahead of runner-up, Marilyn Young (Sandy Run).

Katie wins this honor for the second year in a row. She finished first in the Class C 1st and 2nd Stroke Plays, winning the overall Class C Championship by 12 shots. Katie won the player of the year honors by 130 points over runner-up, Cathy Hipple (Moorestown).
Class D: Emily Wells, Hershey’s Mill Golf Club
Emily had a very strong year in 2022. Her 3rd place finish at the Class D 1st Stroke Play and 1st place finish at the Class D 2nd Stroke Play earned her the Class D Championship, winning by 7 shots. It was a close race for the player of the year in this division, with Emily winning by 15 points over runner-up, Janice Powell (Moorestown).
Junior: Evelyn Wong
Evelyn captured the WGAP Junior Girls’ Championship, securing enough points to earn player of the year honors for 2022. Another highlight for her was the WGAP Junior Inter-City Team win at Radley Run in June this year, when the juniors from our association competed against Massachusetts and New York.
