West Kilbride celebrate their British Champion

A presentation was made to Louise Duncan recently at W.K.G.C. in order to publicly recognise the wonderful golfing achievements by Louise in 2021.   The Club Captain, for the benefit of any new members, recounted these successes.

Winner of the Women's British Amateur Championship

Top 10 finish and winner of the Smyth Salver in the AIG Women's Open

GB & I Curtis Cup Team Member

Invitation to play in Augusta National Women's Amateur event in Georgia and the US Open in 2022 and added that Louise has been selected once again to represent GB & I in the Curtis Cup this year. 

As a past Chairman of the L.G.U. Nancy Chisholm was invited to make the presentation. Nancy was honoured to be asked and alluded to a connection, in that she had a similar presentation to make to Stirling golfer Alison Rose who was the last Scottish winner of the British in 1997 when she was Chairman and, much to Nancy's delight, Alison also won the Scottish Amateur Championship in the same year here at West Kilbride! Nancy added that West Kilbride is very much on the map with talented lady golfers, with Sarah Ramsay from our club being the current Ayrshire Ladies Champion. Nancy thanked Lady Convenor Catherine Garrett who researched to produce this picture and Sarah Ramsay for spending many hours on the computer to put together this lasting memory for Louise. Nancy closed by wishing Louise all the very best in the Curtis Cup matches at Merion Golf Club, U.S in June and indeed with her own golfing career ahead.
