Former Curtis Cup player and Honorary Stirling Golf Club member Alison Davidson recently represented the Scottish Veterans team at  the annual Veterans Jamboree at Hexham Golf Club in Northumberland

This is an event where Scotland take on 3 divisions from England – North, South and Midlands. Scotland lost on the first 2 days against North and South with several matches going to the 18th. The team managed to win against Midlands on the last day with Alison winning both her matches and very proudly holing the winning putt.
