Fiona Farquharson has been

18 times champion of

King James VI club, Perth

Former SLGA staff person Pam Kerr suggested to me that SLGA tournament officer Fiona Farquharson had a formidable collection of club titles which was worth a mention in our series of multi-club champions.
I E-mailed Fiona (pictured right) for the details and here is her reply:
"I joined King James VI Golf Club, Perth in 1986. I won the King James VI ladies' championship from 1986 Ė 1995 (10 consecutive times), and again in 1997, 1999 - 2001, 2003, 2004, 2007 and 2008. So far I have won it 18 times. In most of the unsuccessful years I was the beaten finalist.
"I started at the SLGA in January 2005 and I donít play nearly as much golf nowadays! Perhaps thatís why I didn't win in 2005 and 2006!
"I also won quite a number of club championship titles at Camperdown with many of them consecutive but I donít have the precise details.
"As there are many ladies already listed with far more consecutive wins than me, I am sure that I donít need to bother to find out."

Thanks, Fiona. More grist to the mill!
