The NSGA extends our warmest congratulations to our technical director, Anne Balser, on her induction into the Digby & Area Sports Hall of Fame. Anne has played a major part in our association and in the golf community. She has set impressive examples for youth in golf and has shared her skills with many avid golfers.
Winner of the 2011 and 2016 Nova Scotia Amateur Championship she also won the 2010 Canadian University Championship while playing for the University of Victoria. In 2011, her final year on the golf team, Balser was named Athlete of the Year. She was a four-time first team All-Canadian from 2008-11 as well as being a second team All-American in 2009. Anne was a member of the Canadian University Team for five consecutive years and twice competed at both the World University Golf Championship and the International University Sport Federation Championship.
In April 2018 Anne took up a position with the NSGA as Manager of Sport Development and Championships. Currently she is the Technical Director for the NSGA. The work she has done is impeccable and appreciated by the entire golf community.
It is no surprise that she has received this honour and we know her incredible accomplishments will not stop here. Congratulations Anne, from the NSGA and a ‘well done’ on behalf of the entire golf community.
