Fore! Girls of Golf Incoming…
The Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open, in association with VisitScotland, is being held at The Renaissance Club, North Berwick, on 8th – 11th August. There will be a strong field of Scottish players to cheer on including local girl and Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew, Hamilton’s very own Pamela Pretswell Asher, Kelsey MacDonald who hails from Inverness, Aberdeen girl Michele Thomson, plus Edinburgh’s adopted Scot Beth Allen. Thailand’s Ariya Jutungarn will also be back defending her title. What a line up!
Kylie and I went along to the press launch day and were lucky enough to meet some of the girls who will be out on the course representing Scotland in August. Seeing the camaraderie between them all, brought us right back to what EGG is all about. On the course, they are competitors, but off the course they are good friends who support each other, shout proudly about each other’s success, and just so happen to travel the world together playing golf!
We were able to sit down and have a chat with North Berwick’s very own Catriona Matthew, new Mum (and just back to “the office” after maternity leave) Pamela Pretswell Asher, as well as BT Sports font of all golf knowledge, Emma Dodds. For newbies to golf like us, Emma’s run down of the upcoming Ladies Scottish Open, as well as the Sonheim Cup, is brilliant and has got us really excited to come along and support these awesome ladies! To see the interviews, head to our Instagram TV channel, here.
It’s a family friendly day out with activities for everyone. Whether you fancy a sit down in the Gin Tent or the little ones need to burn off some energy in the soft play area, you will be covered! There will be plenty of variety in the Food and Drinks Village, and most importantly the gorgeous setting of The Renaissance Club is an amazing course to walk. Set by the sea, it will be an absolute stunner!
Most importantly though, tickets are FREE. So put it in your diary and get yourself along to support our home grown, female talent from 8th – 11th August. It really will be a fantastic celebration of women in sport!
