Rae Hast | Teaching Professional
The other significant occasion took place in June when Rae Hast was inducted into the Southern African Golf Hall of Fame where she joined golfing legions Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Ernie Els, Nick Price and other famous southern African golfers in the Hall of Fame which was set up in 2009. At the induction ceremony in Johannesburg, Rae was introduced by Sally Little and Erinvale’s former Director of Golf, Johan Piek.
Some of the highlights of Rae’s career include becoming a Springbok in 1980 and as an amateur she represented South Africa twice in the World Team Championships, won the South African stroke play championship twice and the South African Matchplay championship once as well as many provincial titles.
She then turned pro and was a member of the European Ladies Tour from 1984 to 1997 where she won an Open tournament in England in 1984 and had several top ten finishes on the tour. Rae was also President of the Women’s Professional Golf Association from 2010 to 2012.
I have no doubt one of the highlights of Rae’s career was her decision to come to Erinvale in 1997 where she is an extremely popular and much sought after teaching pro.
It was a pleasure, on behalf of the members of Erinvale, to present Rae with a small memento on being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
