Robin Anderson

Robin started playing golf in 1997 when my company moved me to Houston from the safe and familiar confines of my home in Midland, Texas. I was native to the West Texas area and had friends and relatives that had gathered around me for all of my 40 years living there.

 But I suddenly found myself in Houston, and the only people I knew were the people with whom I worked. A friend in Midland suggested that I learn to play golf where I could meet other people.  I took her advice, and here I am over 20 years later with rich, full friendships that started on the golf course.

When anyone asks me why I’m so passionate about golf, the answer is simple:
“It might be the golf that brings us together, but it’s the friendships that BIND us together.” 



Diana Gats

Diana is a long time member, starting her EWGA life in Canton, OH in 1999.  From then until now, she has held most Chapter positions, (President twice).   She was on the national board, as President of the EWGA Foundation, at the time of merger with LPGA.  Currently, she is the Chair of the Woman on Par® Scholarship, member of TOPS committee, and avid participant in national events.

After many years in corporate America - Her business focus is two fold (1) assisting individuals & teams measurably improve their performance, via assessments, (2) LinkedIn Pro, who can take your LinkedIn presence to a new level.

“Golf was the catalyst for me to integrate easily into male industries and is the foundation of time with my family and friends.”

We learned from our dad at the local country club.  There are two important golf events: (1) I was able to play on the Bowling Green State University women's golf team (2) Played in the Colonial Pro Am representing Dickies in 2018.

My favorite golf courses are Bear Creek, where I met my husband, and Pinehurst golf courses.  I have been married to Junior for over 39 years, have 2 adult children and 5 grandchildren  Family is everything to me as well as my love for God. 

“Playing golf is one of my favorite hobbies as well as sewing and reading novels.”  


Laurie Warfield
Finance Officer

Laurie started playing with the LPGA Amateurs Fort Worth Chapter during Covid.   I grew up in Montana where golf was a seasonal sport.   I was excited when we moved to Texas years ago that I was going to be able to play year-round.    

Golf has allowed me to meet all kinds of people over the years and some great friendships have developed.   “It’s a great game that will challenge you in many ways.”

Natasha Hawes
Events Chair

Natasha has been a dual member with Fort Worth and Dallas for the last 3 years.  She is a Sr. Global Service Professional for Abbott Labs.  Natasha’s experience includes serving on the board for a local youth sports association. 

“I would like to see more young women join.  I would like to see more events in partnership with other local women’s golf organization; some already established: TGA and some new ones: Ebony Ladies, Women on Course, etc.  In order for those things to happen we will need to reach out to those ladies/leadership teams, up our social media game and maybe enlist some men to encourage their wives/girlfriends/mothers/sisters to participate.”


Lynda Duvall
Membership Chair

Lynda started with LPGA FTW Metroplex Chapter mid-year in 2022, when she was asked to fill in on one of the Regional Cup Qualifier teams. 
She started playing golf in 2001, after attending a marriage conference and learning that one of her husband's love languages was "recreational companionship."  Her husband retired in 2023 and they spend time together playing in couple tournaments across Texas and surrounding states. When her children were younger, she was involved with all their sporting associations, volunteering in every aspect of their leagues. 

“I’m excited to be a part of the LPGA Leadership Team as Membership Chair.  My hope is that my team and I will help LPGA current members stay involved and help those considering membership to see the benefits of joining.” 


Tami Bopp
Communications Chair


As most of you know golf is a love/hate relationship😊.  My first experience with golf was going out with my dad when I was about 12 years old.  We walked 18 holes and I got to help carry his bag.  I hated every minute! I didn’t touch a golf club again until I was 35 years old.  I was living in North Carolina, where everyone seems to golf, my parents would come to visit but I didn’t see much of them cuz they were out golfing.  So, I decided to take some lessons at the junior college so I could play with my parents next time they visited. It took 4 long years before I got bit by the golf bug.  Now I’m addicted. Unfortunately, my improvement is slow, and I can’t give up my day job, but I just know my next round of golf is going to be my best! golf is a great equalizer.  

"As long as you know the rules and etiquette you can play anywhere and with anyone. And you can’t beat the scenery golf courses have! Hit em straight!"

 Margaret Woods
Handicap Chair

Margaret joined the Fort Worth Chapter in 2020.  She is currently employed at DFW Consulting Group in the accounting department.  I hope to retire soon and be able to play more golf and I look forward to teaching my grandchildren the game of golf.
I am looking forward to continuing as your Handicap Chair.  I have enjoyed meeting lots of new ladies and playing the many courses in the area. 
“Please reach out to me if you have any handicap questions."

I thank my mom (non-golfer) for introducing me to golf through the Fort Worth Recreation Department when I was 11 years old.

“Golf in itself isn’t easy, but it only takes making a par or birdie every once in a while, to keep you coming back. For me personally, it takes one good shot that stays in the fairways.”
