On Wednesday 3rd July, the Lady Golfers held an afternoon tea as a celebration for Peggy Cronin who turned 90 years of age on that day.
Most of the Lady Golfers were at the Club along with Peg’s Daughter Gail to help her celebrate this memorable milestone.
Peg and late husband Jim joined the Lithgow Golf Club in the early 60’s. Very soon it become apparent that the Club had gained a great duo. Jim served on the Board for many years and was a recognised Captain of the Club. Peg served on the Ladies Committee for many years holding most positions. Both were great workers for and supporters of the Club. So great was their commitment that they were both elected Life Members of the Golf Club, a rare feat.
Peg and Jim played golf well into their 80’s until sadly Jim became ill, Peg continued to play competitively, winning a Gold Medal at the age of 84, only to succumb to retirement from the game she loved when she could no longer walk around the course.
Although Peg has now retired from playing she still holds a strong interest in the goings on at the Club, she comes to pay a visit and attends many of the presentations and always knows who has won what and is interested in what is happening at the Club.
The Ladies’ Committee was thrilled to host a celebration for a much loved and well respected Lady.
A very Happy Birthday to Peggy.
