Julie Greene

She has been the Amateur champion in Rhode Island more than anyone else, man or woman. She won the Rhode Island Women’s Golf Association title 11 times, including at least once in four decades, beginning with her first title in 1963. The gracious, ever-smiling former athletic director at the Lincoln School and director of physical education at Sarah Lawrence College also took the RIWGA title in 1970, ‘76, ‘79, ‘80, ‘82, ‘84, ‘85, ‘96, ‘97 and ‘98. Among her other titles, she also has won the New England Amateur twice (1972 and ‘78) and both the Eastern Women’s Amateur and twice the Eastern Women’s Senior Championship. She twice has been a quarterfinalist, in 1975 and ‘77, in the U.S. Women’s Amateur, losing both times to Beth Daniel. Beyond her playing ability, she also has given back to the game in numerous capacities. The Barrington resident is a former associate director of the Trans-National Golf Association, has served on the executive board of the Women’s Eastern Golf Association and is a former president of that board. Since 1985 she has served on the USGA Junior Girls Committee. She also is among the organizers and leaders of the RIWGA’s Junior Golf program.
