Vale: Doey Choi 2000 – 2024

May 29, 2024

The Board of Golf NSW, Jack Newton Junior Golf, and the staff of both organisations are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Doey Choi.

Doey’s unexpected passing is a profound loss not just for the golf community, but for all who knew her. 

Not only was Doey a remarkable player, but she was also a valued friend to many of us. Her bubbly smile, infectious personality and genuine warmth towards her peers will be sorely missed. 

Doey played our great game with passion, determination and grace. Her record as an amateur was exemplary, and included a NSW Amateur title at the age of 13, plus the national amateur championship of New Zealand. She proudly represented New South Wales at interstate level as a junior and adult, winning multiple national teams titles. 

In 2019, Doey achieved the ultimate recognition in Australian amateur golf, becoming a National representative and competing for her country in the Queen Sirikit Cup & Asia Pacific Ladies Amateur.

Doey will be remembered for her spirit, the joy she brought to so many of us and her contribution to golf in our great State.

Our thoughts are with her family, friends, and loved ones as they come to terms with this unimaginable loss.

Words cannot fully express the depth of sorrow we feel.
