Scottish Women’s Amateur Tour (S.W.A.T.) 

For Women & Girls with a handicap of 36 or better

 

Alan Tait, PGA “Specialist” Scottish Golf Professional,  was dismayed and surprised at how few competitive opportunities there were for women & girls in Scotland.

He therefore decided to set up an Amateur Women’s Golf Tour (S.W.A.T.) for women & girls with a handicap of 36 or better.

He has lined up 9 x 36 hole events at some great venues in Scotland.

The leading 6 scratch players from the order of merit and the leading 6 players from the nett OOM, playing in an end of season Grand Final at Cabot Highlands Castle Stuart in September.

 All events are £65 entry for the 36 holes which I'm sure you'll agree is great value given the quality of the courses. The players can play in as few or as many events as they wish.

 

Details of how to register and enter events can be viewed at 

https://www.alantaitgolf.co.uk/swattour

Alan has asked if I could distribute to all members in Aberdeenshire Ladies County to help spread the word and support his new venture.

Entry for the first event at Royal Dornoch on 17/18th April will open on Wednesday 27th March.

I think this is a great opportunity and I hope to see many of you on The Tour.

Sad News

 



Janette Sneddon Wright (née Robertson)  January 1935 - February 2024

 

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the recent death of Janette Wright (Aboyne).

Our sincere sympathy goes out to all her family.

 

Janette hailed from Glasgow, representing Lenzie Golf Club in her early years. After her

marriage she moved to Aboyne and was part of the highly talented Wright golfing family.

Many will remember her friendly face greeting you in the professional’s shop at

Aboyne Golf Club where her husband, Innes, was the Professional.

 

Janette was a keynote speaker at our ALCGA Centenary Lunch in 2011. She charmed

everyone with her amazing stories from a bygone age when air travel was in its infancy and

destinations were reached by sea, sometimes taking many weeks.

 

She was a most gracious lady, modest, unassuming, popular with everyone. She will be

greatly missed by us all and remembered with great affection.

 

Janette had an incredible amateur golfing career, including 3 consecutive victories in the Scottish Ladies’ Championship from 1959-1961.

We have highlighted some of her fabulous achievements below as you will see she truly had an exceptional career.

 Congratulations to Rhona Pirie (Deeside) winning the Sheena Wood Rosebowl today at Peterculter, beating Susie Macleod (Aberdeen Ladies) 5&4.

The final was played in a most sporting manner with Rhona  recieving 25 shots, which she used very well, with many nett birdies and even a nett eagle! 

The weather was perfect and our thanks must go to Peterculter Golf Club for granting us courtesy of their lovely course for the match.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed playing the course, which was in excellent condition.
