Ann (Forrest) Dickey ‘88 was a three-sport student athlete that excelled in the classroom and in her athletic pursuits. Finding the game of golf through her parents and a vibrant youth golf program at Braemar Golf Course in Edina, Minnesota, Ann fell in love with the sport. She joined the Edina High School Varsity Golf Team as an 8th grader, was a four-time Individual State Qualifier, three-time All Conference, a two-year Captain, a top 10 individual finisher on two occasions, and finished her Edina golf career as the captain of the 1988 State Championship team.
While healthy, Ann competed and won the Interlachen Country Club Women’s Club Championship in 2010 and 2012 - that tournament will bear her name starting in 2018.
In 2017, Ann served as the Assistant Golf Coach at Edina where they implemented a no-cut policy. That team went on to win the State Championship in June 2017, making Ann one of the few Edina graduates to play on and coach a Minnesota State Championship team.
Ann lived in Edina, Minnesota with her husband Dave Dickey and their four children Katie '17 (who was a Co-Captain of the 2017 State Champion Girls Golf Team), Elizabeth (16), Jack (13), and Josh (10).
As a part of her legacy to youth development and golf, she has with her friends Peg Hicks and Andrea Kellar, ask that donations in her honor be targeted to advance access and opportunity.
This past year, Ann, Andrea Kellar, and Nick Olsen worked tirelessly to create a no-cut policy for the team. The number of golfers associated with the program grew from 15 to 40. This approach gave 25 more girls the chance to be exposed to the great game of golf, be part of a team, to gain confidence, and to improve at a game that they can play their whole lives.
