Ruth’s years of service commended

A selection of Queensland&aposs finest and most dedicated golfers were recognised for their successes at the Queensland Golf Industry Awards held last night in Brisbane. Ruth Hungerford was honoured to be named Club Super Queensland Volunteer of the Year. The award acknowledged the time and commitment that volunteers put into the golf industry and Hungerford is a key part of this.

Since then she has been involved as President, handicap manager and been responsible for the organisation of the annual District tournaments. At 78 years of ages, she is still Treasurer for Clifton Golf Club, and has been Captain of the ladies committee for many years. Every Wednesday, Hungerford runs the ladies golf and spends her weekends organising daily competitions.
