From Iain Butchart - Junior Convenor, Strathmore Golf Club 
Testament to how far our girls have progressed. Strathmore Gents were struggling to field a Scratch League team and Gents captain Norman Dyce suggested to the Perth and Kinross Executive that if Strathmore were to include Ladies or Girls then they could field a team.
Being one of the most forward-thinking counties in Scotland, this was agreed and as Junior Convenor I am personally delighted as I was instrumental in having Girls included in the Junior Scratch League 11 years ago and this year will field the first-ever all-Girl Junior Scratch League team and will have two in the men's team and three in the women's team.
This is unprecedented and probably does more to enhance the amalgamation currently going on within Golf. We have also recently started running Family Competitions within our Junior Section so that parents and grandparents can join in and these are gaining in popularity so if you want to grow golf make it inclusive. Strathmore and P and K are leaders not followers.

Joint Junior Captains Megan Ashley and Amy Mitchell who are in the team seeing into the future!!!
