Aniela Gorczyca Goldthwaite

Aniela Goldthwaite, who played on the U.S. Curtis Cup team in 1934, began her golf career as a teenager in Fort Worth under the watchful eye of “Mitch” Mitchell, the head professional at River Crest C.C.. Aniela’s credentials as a golfer are unique in that her talents as an administrator have carried her as far as her talents as a player.

She served the UKGA as non-playing Captain of the Curtis Cup Team in 1952. She was a semi-finalist in the Women’s Amateur in 1966 and also served in the USGA’s women’s committee for 8 years. Goldthwaite’s tournament record includes championships and medalist honors in the Southern Golf Association, Women’s Texas GA, Women’s Texas Open, the Trans-Miss, and three Women’s Texas GA titles. In addition to raising a family, Aniela played an integral role in the success of Goldthwaite’s of Texas. In recognition of that role, she was named to Who’s Who in American Women in 1972.
