This is our second profile and highlights the golfing background of a very respected and well-liked member of our Toukley Ladies Golf Club. She continues to amaze us with her many achievements and we thought that we might share some of them with you. Her very modest input is as follows:
“Hi, my name is Yvonne Boardman and I am happy to say I’ve been a member of Toukley Golf Club since 1986.
I started playing golf with the juniors at Everglades Country Club at the age of 9. As we only lived around the corner from the Golf club I was able to spend lots of time on the course, both with the juniors and also my father Hughie, who is still a keen golfer to this day.
I chose to join Toukley because it has always been my favourite golf course on the Coast. For the first few years I travelled from Woy Woy to play but eventually was lucky enough to buy a house in Ninth Ave backing on to the sixth hole. It is golfing heaven.
Toukley is a wonderful place to play golf as the club really does live up to its reputation as being the “friendly club”. I have met many wonderful people over the years, including my husband! It has also been an honour to represent the club in pennants and major events for the last thirty years.
I would not have achieved all I have in golf without the help and support from everyone at Toukley. The course has also been a big factor in making me the player I am today as it continually throws up challenges on a daily basis.
I look forward to spending many more years at Toukley enjoying both the golf and the company of the many fantastic members.
While this is a nice summary of an extraordinary career over the past 30 years or so it doesn’t nearly explain some of her career highlights, so I insisted that more information was required. These are some of Yvonne’s achievements since 1989.
