SGU/SLGA Seminar

John King, Blair Anderson, Jack Snell and Vivien Howe attended the seminar at Haggs Castle yesterday. The speakers were very informative and have given us plenty to think about!

Armistice Day - November 11th 2011

'They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.'

Thanks go to Jean Irvine for the wonderful poppy and lily display (click on photo to enlarge)

We all know that GB&I men hold the Walker Cup, European Professionals hold both the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup and all that remains is the Curtis Cup, the amateur ladies trophy. This match will be held in Scotland at Nairn 8-10 June 2012 and the SLGA are hoping that Scotland can be the scene of the clean sweep of all the Team Championships. At a meeting in Strathmore in September each Scottish County was asked to put forward an ‘Ambassador’. 
Carol Fell was announced as being appointed as this County Ambassador post to liaise with the SLGA to help get support for the GB&I team.
