Jenny Pearson

It is with great sadness that I have to report that past Border Ladies captain, Jenny Pearson sadly passed away on Sunday after a long illness.
 Jenny, captain for two separate terms, was a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of Border Ladies and Border Girls Golf.  She was at the helm when I joined the committee as junior secretary and in my first year, I accompanied her as an official to the girls Inter-divisionals at Ballumbie where her passion for competition was very much in evidence.  She provided great encouragement to many of our up and coming players and took great pride when Martine Pow gained her first full Scottish International Cap at Royal Porthcawl in 2004, travelling down to see her play.
In both years of her first term of Captaincy the Border Ladies qualified for the County Finals - Nairn Dunbar in 2004 and Ranfurly Castle in 2005.  She returned to the captaincy in 2010 

Jenny enjoyed her golf and the social side that went along with it and indeed wherever she travelled to play, Jenny would undoubtedly be found in the pro shop looking to add to her wardrobe!

A very generous woman, Jenny Pearson will be a great miss to all who knew her.
