PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (Dec. 10, 2018) – Gail Rogers took over as president of the Northern California Golf Association on Dec. 7 during the NCGA’s annual meeting at Poppy Hills Golf Course. Rogers becomes the 92nd president of the association and also the first female to hold the position. She has been on the board of directors since 2011.
“Golf has brought so many fantastic experiences into my life,” Rogers said during the historic proceedings. “My role as a leader in this sport has always been to represent all golfers.”
Rogers is a longtime rules official who has garnered tremendous respect in her work with the NCGA, Women’s Golf Association of Northern California and the USGA. Rogers’ legacy in the game has been about knowledge of the rules and giving her time to help run various amateur events.
In October, AmateurGolf.com caught up with Rogers after she captained NCGA teams to victory in the Hanna-Wehrman and Staedler-Jetters cups. Click here to read the full Q&A
