Following her illustrious playing career, Lady Bonallack, Angela, continued to support Great Britain and Ireland’s golfers, often seen walking the fairways watching and supporting players representing both England and GB&I.
Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said, “We are deeply saddened to hear of Angela’s passing. Her achievements in the game are a true reflection of a prolific amateur career in which she won many prestigious titles and represented Great Britain and Ireland at the highest levels of the sport.
“On behalf of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews and The R&A I would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to Sir Michael and the Bonallack family.”
In 2015, she made history as one of the first lady members admitted to The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews and won the first monthly medal she played in with a net 71.
She is survived by Sir Michael, her children, Glenna, Jane, Sara & Robert and her ten grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
