St An­drews golf­ing prospect se­lected for Scot­land team

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

One of Fife’s lead­ing fe­male golfers has been se­lected to rep­re­sent Scot­land in this year’s home in­ter­na­tion­als.

Chloe Goadby, from St Reg­u­lus Golf Club, will take part in the Ladies’ Home In­ter­na­tion­als – an an­nual event played over three days with teams from Scot­land, Eng­land, Ire­land and Wales.

This year, the event will take place at Bally­bunion Golf Club in County Kerry, Ire­land, from Au­gust 8 to 10. Chloe will be part of a team of seven fly­ing the flag for the coun­try.

The an­nounce­ment came from Scot­tish Golf, the govern­ing body for am­a­teur golf in Scot­land.

Andrew McKin­lay, the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: “At Scot­tish Golf we’re pas­sion­ate about sup­port­ing fe­male tal­ent from grass root to elite level.

“As well as play­ing for fun, there are end­less com­pet­i­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to those who play the sport – with the Ladies’ Home In­ter­na­tion­als be­ing one. I con­grat­u­late Chloe on mak­ing the se­lec­tion and wish her ev­ery suc­cess in the com­pe­ti­tion. Let’s hope this will be Scot­land’s year.”

The Ladies’ Home In­ter­na­tion­als was first played in 1885. Ire­land won last year.
