Vale - Al Trinder, Golf NSW Life Member

Al Trinder, a Life Member of Golf NSW and the NSWGA passed away on May 10, aged 85. Al joined Tamworth Golf Club in 1950 and was a member of the club for over 66 years. He served as Tamworth's President, Treasurer and Board Member for over 15 years from 1969 to 1970.

Always involved in the club socially and in club activities, his greatest legacy was the time he spent developing the Tamworth Juniors Program. Al got a thrill seeing local players represent their state and country in the amateur ranks, with many of them becoming professional and making a living from the game.

His funeral was held on Monday, 16 May 2016 at the St Patricks Catholic Church, Crown St, West Tamworth.
