Sad News – Jane Brewer
It is with sadness that I report the passing away of Jane Brewer on September the 13th. Jane’s maiden name was Redgate before she married Brian Brewer. She was a member of both Wollaton and Notts Ladies Golf Club. Jane was an excellent golfer and her titles speak for themselves; she won the British Girls Championship in 1951, the Midland Championship in 1951 and 1952. Her first County Championship win was 1953 and last was 1978 - not bad going; she won 11 Championships in all.
Jane served as County Captain twice from 1972-73 and the 2nd time she stepped up as Bridgett Patrick’s Vice when Bridgett’s first choice was unable to continue, that was from 1986-87. Jane served as Notts President from 1994 until 1998. She was also Chairman of the English Ladies Golf Association in 1977/8 and Chairman of the Ladies Golf Union in 1982. Jane committed many years to the playing and organising of golf and she will be missed by many of her friends in the golfing community.
