Mary Everard - Obituary


HALLAMSHIRE honorary life member Mary Everard, one of Britain’s most successful amateur lady golfers, has died after a long illness, aged 79. A former England amateur stroke play champion, Everard was Yorkshire Ladies County Golfers' Association captain in 1971 and five times the county champion. She was an England international and made four Curtis Cup appearances, as well as playing for Great Britain & Ireland against Europe in the Vagliano Trophy. Everard, who was also an honorary member of YLCGA, had played at Hallamshire for many years, where she was President in 2015. There were many other other successes and victories over her career. She said last year in an interview with the Baslow WI, Derbyshire, where she ran a bed and breakfast: “My proudest moment was to represent Great Britain & Ireland in the amateur ladies’ golf team, playing against the United States in four different years. “Standing by our flag pole in our blazers and skirts uniform, with the National Anthem playing as the Union Jack was hoisted - very proud moments.”
