A vacancy has arisen for the position of Secretary/Treasurer at The Lothians Golf Association (LGA), with the current post holder retiring at the end of August 2013.
The Lothian Golf Association (LGA) is a constituted body and is part of the Scottish Golf Union (SGU). The SGU is the governing authority for male amateur golf in Scotland and is made up of 16 Areas, of which Lothians is the largest in terms of member clubs and players.
Our 75 Affiliated Clubs have a male membership of almost 29,000 as well as a substantial membership of ladies and an increasing number of juniors. There are also 45 Affiliated Societies representing a wide range of interests such as banking, insurance, building and service industries, former pupil associations and a host of small local clubs with histories going back well over 100 years.
The LGA represents the affiliated clubs in the Lothians area at the SGU and organises a number of high level competitions and matches on behalf of the golfers in the Lothians as well as organising the South East District Championship.
The LGA is responsible for selecting teams to represent the Lothians in national competitions, both at senior and junior level, which is often the players ‘stepping stone’ to international selection. In order to develop young golfers in the Lothians, the LGA runs an extensive winter coaching programme for juniors who have been nominated by their clubs as their most promising golfers.
The Secretary/Treasurer position is home-based and involves flexible working (average 24 hours per week). Good communication skills, a knowledge of bookkeeping and word processing together with an enthusiasm for the game of golf are essential. Experience of Club administration is desirable. Honorarium negotiable.
A more extensive job description can be provided to interested parties by contacting the association by phone (0131 334 7291) or by e-mailing
Applications in writing with CV to: Allan G Shaw, Secretary, Lothians Golf Association, 34 Caroline Terrace, Edinburgh, EH12 8QX.
