 Marion Hollins was a pioneer in the field of golf course development. A former US Women's Amateur Champion she developed the world class Cypress Point and Pasatiempo and The Womens 
National Golf and Tennis Club on Long Island.   Marion also assisted at the construction of Augusta. Clifford Roberts, Augusta’s Chairman, objected to Alister MacKenzie sending Marion (a woman) on a site visit in his place however MacKenzie responded:

   “She has been associated with me in three golf courses and 
not only are her own ideas valuable, but she is thoroughly conversant in
 regard to the character of work I like. I want her views and her 
personal impressions in regard to the way the work is being carried 
out.”  

 MacKenzie then stated: 

  “I do not know of any man who has sounder ideas.”   ​A truly remarkable woman.   ​

Julia Hoffman.​

First female President of any golf club carrying the official 'Royal' charter.

Royal Canberra Golf Club was granted '​Royal' status by King George V in 1933. Julia Hoffman served as Club President from 20th September 2005 for the maximum two term period.

In August of 2012 the Augusta National Golf Club invited women to play on its course for the first time in its 80-year history. Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina businesswoman Darla Moore are the first female members.

Marion Hollins was a pioneer in the field of golf course development. A former US Women's Amateur Champion she developed the world class Cypress Point and Pasatiempo and The Womens National Golf and Tennis Club on Long Island.

Marion also assisted at the construction of Augusta. Clifford Roberts, Augusta’s Chairman, objected to Alister MacKenzie sending Marion (a woman) on a site visit in his place however MacKenzie responded:

“She has been associated with me in three golf courses and not only are her own ideas valuable, but she is thoroughly conversant in regard to the character of work I like. I want her views and her personal impressions in regard to the way the work is being carried out.”

MacKenzie then stated:

“I do not know of any man who has sounder ideas.”

​A truly remarkable woman.
