Message from our new captain

Dear Ladies

It gives me great pleasure to announce that I am the new Border Ladies captain and my daughter Tara is the new vice captain. I hope to bring all of my experience having followed Tara over many years representing both County and Country at all levels to ensure the long term future of Ladies Golf in the Borders. I am honoured to be given this role and would like to give something back to this great game where I have met many lifelong friends from the South of Scotland to the North. I look forward to seeing you all over the season at our competitions.
Please feel free to contact myself or Tara with any issues no matter how small.

With kind regards

Claire Mactaggart
