Rita Dodd: It is with sadness that we report the passing of Rita Dodd on the 2nd February, 2017. Some of her golfing highlights were recorded in the History book back in 2008. “Ask Rita where she gets the motivation to keep bouncing back to golf and you learn that she has drawn positive inspiration from all of her life’s adversity. She started golf with her mother at Cessnock, socially. Her brother was a very good golfer but died prematurely; she used to tease him about chasing the little white ball around, but soon got the bug herself. Her lowest handicap was 21, and her most memorable round was winning the State Foursomes with Betty Parker, but states the best golfer she has played with was June Halloran. Rita always felt privileged to be invited to play with June in the 3BBB events. Rita partnered Wilbur Wrightson in the mixed foursomes each year and had played with him the day before she had her hip broken. She recalls Wilbur putting her in the drain near the bridge on the first and with much muttering under her breath, took a mighty swing and dug the ball out to land it six inches from the pin.” A celebration of her life will take place at The Catholic Church, Toronto.
