Life membership rewards Little’s huge service

NORRIE Little was recently awarded life membership of the Korumburra Golf Club.
Norrie joined the club in the mid 1970’s and over these last 40 years has provided exemplary dedication and service to the club.
Almost as soon as Norrie joined the club, she was the booking secretary for the many social groups that travelled long distances to play on Sundays.
This was the beginning of decades of administration duties that Norrie performed.
Norrie has held office on the ladies’ committee in many positions: president in 2004/2005 and 2009/2010, captain in 2000/2001, secretary from 1991 until 1998, again in 2014/2015 and has recently been reappointed for the next term.
She has also been a valuable part of the general committee during most of the years since she became a member.
Norrie’s golfing achievements are remarkable.
She was club champion in 1994, 2004 and 2005 and star medallist in 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2001.
Norrie has also been the champion in many notable events, often multiple times, including B Grade, Seniors, Singles Grade Match Play, Singles Knock-out, Foursomes, Match Play 4BBB, Mixed Foursomes, Bowls and Board events.
For many years, Norrie represented the club in Pennant matches and this year was an integral team member of the winning Section 2 Pennant flag.
To add to these accomplishments, Norrie scored a hole-in-one on the first green in 1999.
Norrie makes an enormous contribution to the catering committee with her tireless work and exceptional organisational skills at counter teas, dinners, weddings and countless other events.
The many hours that Norrie has given are immeasurable.
Her planning and eye to detail (especially with serviette folding) are impeccable.
She assists in coordinating volunteers and is proficient in allocating suitable jobs for the various helpers.
Norrie has also been very involved in many gardening working bees and her understanding and expertise of plants proves to be invaluable.
The wider South Gippsland golfing community know Norrie very well as she is one of the first to put her name down to play at events within the district.
Norrie welcomes and encourages new members and happily plays with beginners to share useful hints and knowledge of the game.
Norrie has been the delegate and secretary of the South Gippsland Senior Ladies Association.
She also won the South Gippsland Senior’s Women’s Championship some time ago.
Norrie demonstrates a real love for the game of golf with a strong competitive drive and shows good sportsmanship.
Norrie, along with her husband John, have generously donated trophies over many years.
They have enjoyed playing mixed events together and won the South Gippsland Mixed Foursomes on numerous occasions.
On hearing of the news that she had been given this award, Norrie said, “I feel very proud and humbled.
“It is a great pleasure to work with the wonderful ladies at our golf club and thanks everyone so much.”
The club is indebted to Norrie for her involvement, enthusiasm and commitment over the years and congratulates her on being awarded life membership of the Korumburra Golf Club.
