Beth Paterson, a member of Eastwood Golf Club, has been nominated as the new chairman of the Perth-based Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association.
And one of her major tasks during the three-year term will be to progress discussions with the Scottish Golf Union on amalgamation of the two governing bodies.
“I am looking forward to taking up the post, and I am sure there will be many challenges,” said the single figure handicap golfer who has a wealth of experience in the ladies’ game.
“Working with the SGU on the amalgamation will be one of the main issues.”
Paterson’s nomination is set to be ratified at the SLGA’s Annual General Meeting in Perth next month, and she will replace Shona Malcolm, who steps down after a very successful four years as Chairman.
