Diane Dunlop-Hébert (1959 - …), inducted in 2024

Diane Dunlop-Hébert is one of Québec’s most distinguished golf volunteers. She has served as President of Golf Canada, President of Golf Québec, President of Mount Bruno Country Club, and is the first Canadian woman elected as a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, Scotland.

At Mount Bruno, Diane was Ladies’ Captain and the first female President in 2019 and 2020. She has been involved as a volunteer for over 25 years. She was Treasurer of the Canadian Ladies Golf Association (CLGA) - Québec Branch and was part of the committee for the amalgamation between the CLGA and the Québec Golf Association in 2005.

As a Director of Golf Québec, she held various portfolios, from Treasurer to Vice-President, before becoming the first female President in 2007 and 2008. She received the Pierre-Nadon prize twice, in 2019, for her individual contribution, and in 2020, for her involvement with the Standing Committee of the Québec golf industry.

Her volunteer work led her to Golf Canada, where she chaired four committees: Nominations, Audit & Risk, Membership, and Compensation. In 2012, she became the first woman from the province of Québec to serve as President of Golf Canada's Board of Directors. Diane is still active at the national level as a Canadian Golf Hall of Fame Selection Committee member.

Diane is also involved in the Golf Canada Foundation, which is building the Jocelyne Bourassa Legacy Fund to support women golf coaches and education bursaries for women professional golfers. In 2021, the Foundation recognized Diane as a Legacy Award recipient.

In 2015, Diane Dunlop-Hébert was elected as a full member of Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews (R&A), becoming the first Canadian woman to join the Club, along with six other international women members, following the historic decision to admit women to Club membership. Diane has continued her volunteer work at the global level, joining the R&A Group of Companies Finance Committee in 2022 and the R&A Group of Companies General Committee in 2023.

Diane's philanthropic endeavours extend far beyond the golfing scene. She has been an ardent supporter of numerous charitable organizations, including Concordia University, the Montréal Children's Library, Leucan, the Lower Canada College Parents' Campaign, the St. Mary's Hospital Foundation, the Red Cross Ball, the Montréal Heart Institute Foundation, the Old Brewery Mission, and many more. Her commitment to making a difference in the community is truly commendable.

Diane has lived in Montréal since an early age. She began her career with Ernst & Young in Montréal and has held the position of VP Infrastructure at Groupe Park Avenue, a family-owned company, since 1995. A retired member of the Ordre des comptables professionnels agréés (CPA) du Québec and the Institute of Corporate Directors, she holds a Bachelor of Commerce with distinction from Concordia University and a Graduate Certificate in Professional Accounting from McGill University.

Diane Dunlop-Hébert was elected to the Québec Golf Hall of Fame in the builder category.
