Remembering Vinice Godio, Champion Lady Golfer

Unknown to many Negrenses is a name which made itself famous on the golf courses in Manila.  The name was Vinice Godio-Estacion.

She was the pride of several golf clubs for bringing the home the bacon 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 2006 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.
