TROON-BASED SHONA FILLS LADIES GOLF UNION


From Colin Farquharson, Cal Carson Golf Agency

 

Shona, who lives in Troon, will take the reins of the ruling body in women's amateur golf in Great Britain & Ireland, until September 30.

Miss Malcolm has been a Scottish Councillor on the LGU council for the past year, and will take charge on a part-time consultancy basis, taking responsibility at a crucial time in the implementation of the LGU Business Plan.Her immediate priority will be to develop a project plan for, and drive the delivery of, the Business Plan, with specific early emphasis on governance and staffing structures.

Shona, an R&A qualified referee, has been involved in golf administration for many years, having served as honorary treasurer of the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association for five years (1996-2001) and more recently as chairman of the SLGA’s Business Development Group and the Scottish “One Plan for Golf” steering group. She is also involved in Scotland’s junior golf strategy as a Clubgolf board member.

Shona said, “I am delighted to take on this challenging role at what is a particularly exciting time for the LGU. I look forward to working with all the staff at St. Andrews to move the LGU forward in line with the approved Business Plan and to maintain and indeed strengthen the collective voice for women and girls golf.”

Lesley Burns resigned in early December as the LGU chief executive after only 18 months in the job. She was quoted at the time as saying:

"I took on the job for all the right reasons and the women accepted that they had signed me on to take them gently but firmly through a period of change. As it has turned out, the LGU Council have been trying to change me rather than vice versa. It has probably got as much to do with history as anything else but they want to continue to make the decisions for themselves."
