SADGA legend Jenny Frost passes away

The South African Disabled Golf Association is shocked and saddened to announce the passing of SADGA legend Jenny Frost.

The loveable leg-amputee had an infectious love for life, offering a warm smile to all who crossed her path. She was one of the early members of the association and was part of the fabric of the SADGA for the better part of two decades.

Frost had stepped away from SADGA competition in recent years to care for her beloved Norman who passed away earlier this year. After his passing, Jenny’s golfing family rallied around her, SADGA staff and members alike enjoying many a chat and drink with Jenny at the Tshwane Disabled Open and Cape Town Disabled Golf Open.

The always-competitive Frost would smile knowing her final SADGA Open ended as it should, in victory, as she claimed the Ladies Stableford and Leg-Amputee Stableford titles at the Cape Town Disabled Golf Open hosted by The City Of Cape Town with a steady two-round tally of 65 points.

But everyone who had the pleasure of meeting Frost in fact can call themselves a winner, she just had that effect on people as longtime friend and SADGA Operations Manager Lily Reich will attest.

“This is a heartbreakingly sad day for everyone at the SADGA. Jenny was deeply loved by all who knew her, the number of fairways she found each round surpassed only by the number of friends she kept,” said Reich.

“Kind and incredibly caring, Jenny embodied all that is great about our association. On behalf of everyone at the SADGA I’d like to convey my deepest condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time.”

“Wherever you may be Jen, we know you’ll keep swinging and smiling, radiating light wherever you go.”
