John Black new Murcar Links captain, 

Pat Wilson club's first lady president

Following our AGM last night I'm delighted to announce that John A. Black is elected as Captain.  John, pictured below, has been a member at Murcar since a boy - 35 years.  He is delighted and honoured to be elected as Captain.
Following the resignation of Mr Pat A. Symon as Honorary President we are delighted to announce that for the first time in Murcar's history we elected a Lady Honorary President - Mrs Pat F. Wilson.  
As I'm sure you're aware Pat's dedication to Murcar Links over the last 46 years, and to Scottish golf, is second to none and to be the first Lady Honorary President at Murcar Links is a great honour for her. 
Pat has represented Scotland against England and once against Ireland; Lady Club Champion seven times, Ladies' Captain 1988-1990 and 2010-2012; Aberdeenshire County Captain 2002-2003.  
In 2004 she joined the board of the Scottish Ladies Golfing Association, chairing the Selection Committee for three years and Handicap Committee for two years.  In 2008 she became Chairman of the SLGA.  Currently the Scottish Vets Captain.

Also elected as one of Murcar Links' Honorary Vice Presidents was Hugh B. Stuart.  Hugh was Captain 2008-2010, which coincided with our centenary year in 2009.  Hugh joined Murcar in 1960 and was made an honorary life member of the club in 1971.  
He played in three Walker Cup matches from 1971 until 1975, represented Scotland in the Home Internationals from 1967 until 1976.  As a 17-year old he set a course record of 66 at Forres and, on his 18th birthday, a record 68 at Moray.  
In 1971, he was in the six-man British team at the Commonwealth Championships in New Zealand.  In 1973, he was a member of Britain's four-man Eisenhower Trophy team in Buenos Aires.  
Played three times for Great Britain against Europe in the St Andrews Trophy and four times for Scotland in the European Team Championships.  A highly respected golfer who is also honoured to be elected as Honorary Vice President.
