Mourning the Loss of Former Executive Director Charlotte N. Barnhard

It is with very heavy hearts that we pass along the news that Charlotte N. Barnhard has passed away on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 at the age of 78.  A sudden illness claimed the life of our beloved former Executive Director.  As we get information on the service to remember Charlotte, we will pass it along to you.

For those of us who had the pleasure of knowing Charlotte, we will never forget her.  She gave 43 years of service to this organization and was a passionate champion of women’s amateur golf and WGAP.  Charlotte grew up learning the game of golf at Llanerch Country Club and has her name engraved on 3 WGAP trophies – the Fox Cup, the Dixon Cup, and the Powell Cup.  She worked tirelessly as the Executive Director of WGAP to promote the game of golf to women of all abilities in the Philadelphia area.  Her vision and guidance is the reason our Association is in the place it is today.  

We will miss Charlotte.  But at each tournament/open day/team match, as the sun shines down on the competitors, we know Charlotte is up there smiling that her legacy lives on in all of you.
