For everyone who was fortunate enough to have known Richard Smith, you would all agree that Virginia Golf recently lost a true pioneer. I am proud to have known Richard for many years and his contribution to junior golf in the Commonwealth was nothing short of fantastic. Richard was a true professional and was tireless in his commitment and promotion of the VSGA junior golf program. Many of our best and brightest (both on the course and off) owe Richard and his efforts an enormous debt of gratitude. It was an honor knowing and working with you Richard – Rest In Peace!
