History of the Rosemary Balsley Junior/Member Better Ball Tournament

Rosemary Balsley was a lifelong member at Highland Country Club. She was heavily involved in junior golf. It was imperative to her that girls should have just as much opportunity as boys. Her inspiration came from Patty Hinkel and Ginny Lancaster who were well known golfers at that time. In 1976, the Rosemary Balsley Junior-Member Better Ball Tournament was established.

History of the Pat Hinkel Trophy / Ginny Lancaster Trophy

The Pat Hinkel Trophy was presented to the WGAWP in 1954 by Mr. and Mrs. William H. Hinkel Jr. in memory of their daughter, Pat, who was struck by lightning while playing golf. The trophy is offered “in the hope that it will attract more young girls to the game of golf and promote good sportsmanship and fellowship." The Pat Hinkel Trophy will be awarded to the Low Net Junior Girl in the Pat Hinkel Tournament.

The Ginny Lancaster Trophy, presented in 1973 by Mrs. Fred Lancaster, a promoter of Junior Golf in Western Pennsylvania, will be awarded to the Low Gross Junior Girl in the Pat Hinkel Tournament.
