Remembering a great Lady Golfer, Vinice Godio-Estacion

When we think of the great golfers who hail from the island of Negros, we often think of Golem Silverio.  On the side of the ladies, we sometimes have to think long about who blazed the golf course from the red tee box.  Well, there was a name who made herself famous on the southern golf courses.  The name was Vinice Godio-Estacion.

She was the pride of several golf clubs for bringing the home the trophies in her respective golf clubs. She has been the perennial champion of many big club tournaments.

Think of this:  Seven (7) years Ladies Club Champion in the prestigious Sta. Elena Golf Club, of which 2001 to 2003 were consecutive, as well as 2005 to 2008.  Six (6) Consecutive years Ladies Club Champion in Alabang Country Club.  She was also 2 years National Ladies Club Champion. Vinice, was an alumna of Riverside College in Bacolod City.  Yes, that same Riverside College next to the former residence of another Filipino golfing great, Luis "Golem" Silverio.

Sadly, Vinice passed away on October 28, 2009.

Play It Right posts this in her memory, and as an online memorial because it surprised us that there are hardly any articles seen on the world wide web referring us to this great lady golfer.
