Vale Sue Goundrey

A message from GolfWA Chief Executive, Gary Thomas.

It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of Sue Goundrey.

Sue initially worked as a volunteer with women’s golf, and in particular with the elite golfers where her guidance and advice was appreciated by all the girls.

As the office expanded and more services were made available to the women members, Women’s Golf WA needed to employ experienced golfing staff and thus Sue joined the staff in 2000 and continued with GolfWA until she finished working with us in early October last year due to ill health.

As many would know, Sue was very much the face of Women’s Golf, often being the first point of contact in the office and being involved in a vast array of women’s events over those 14 ½ years. Amongst all her hard work, Sue was also known to have a lot of fun and entered wholeheartedly into the costume nights after the Regional Seniors, Provisional and Rural Bronze, even winning the famous “frock” on one occasion.

Sue made many, many friends throughout the state and there is no doubt she will be greatly missed.
