Pamela Williamson retiring from
senior international golf

Pamela Williamson (Baberton), a past Scottish senior stroke-play and match-play champion, has announced her retirement from senior international golf after a long and very successful career.
Pamela, pictured right by Cal Carson Golf Agency (all rights reserved), has been an ever-present member of the Scottish veterans' team since the mid-1990s and, more recently, has been a regular member of the Scottish senior international team since its inception in 2004.
Most recently, she played for Scotland in the European senior ladies' team championship, the first time Scotland decided to enter a team.
This year's Vets' Jamboree will be Pamela's swansong as a player but her experience will not be lost as she has recently taken on the mantle of vice-captain of the Scottish Vets.
We are delighted that Pamela's vast knowledge and experience will not be lost to Scottish golf.
Pamela Williamson has helped me to compile a list of her golfing achievements. Here are what she describes as "significant highlights."
Strathtyrum Trophy (St Andrews) winner 1999.
Scottish seniors stroke-play champion 1999, 2002, 2005.
Scottish seniors match-play champion 2005.
European, British & Canadian senior championships - over-60s winner 2002.
Dutch seniors - Runner-up 2002.
Irish seniors runner-up 1001, winner 2002 & 2003.
Italian seniors winner 2004.
Senior international foursomes (with Valerie Hassett) winner 2003
Canadian Super Seniors winner 2007.
"I am quite touched about the interest in my senior golfing career," says Pamela. "Playing for Scotland, albeit at senior level, has been, for me, the absolute pinnacle of my sporting life. Therefore, recognition of this is hugely meaningful to me.
"I am still going to play in my favourite championships and one or two which, perhaps, are a little different, eg Finnish, Hungarian, Estonian, Croatia!"
