Eddy Cue to retire at Eddy Clements Golf Course
Eddy Cadenas Golf Course in Virginia will close its doors this month after the former chairwoman of the USGA resigned.
Eddy had been chairman since 2012, and she had been the only woman in the USG.
The course had a long history in Virginia.
Its namesake, Eddy, is a popular songwriter who was born in Virginia and grew up in the state.
She had a hand in creating a popular local radio station.
In 2017, she left the USGC to take a job as a vice president of the International Golf & Country Club in Maryland, which has hosted golf tournaments for the past 30 years.
The USGC was the site of a 2016 USGA Women’s Open that was held at Edy CadenAS golf course in Virginia, the oldest course in the world.
“I am deeply saddened and angry by this news,” Cadenascas said in a statement.
The USGA also said it will be stepping up its outreach to its members. “
It has been an honor to be the chairwoman at the US Golf & Clubs for so many years, and I thank all the members of the board for their support and their continued commitment to this wonderful community.”
The USGA also said it will be stepping up its outreach to its members.
The golf course is one of three in the Virginia area that will close after the end of the year, according to the Virginia Golf Council.
Edy was named USGA President in 2019, succeeding Bobby Nelles.
Cadenavcs resignation comes amid ongoing tension between the Trump administration and the governing body over the removal of the president from office.
The president had previously said that he would step down, saying that he did not believe he could continue in the job given the events in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Trump has said that there were no “specific political motivations” for the removal, and the White House has not disputed that he is stepping down.
He said at the time that the removal would take place “after we find out what the facts are.”
