Scottish Golf is immensely saddened to learn of the passing of three-time Scottish Ladies Champion, Joan Lawrence. Joan, who was a member of Aberdour Golf Club, passed away in hospital after suffering a stroke last week. She was 89.
A member of the 1964 Curtis Cup team, Joan also represented Scotland that year in the World Team Championship where she helped Scotland to a second-place finish. Joan also represented Scotland in the European Team Championships three times, playing for her country in the 1965, 1967 and 1969 events. Joan was also a member of the winning Vagliano Cup team in 1963 and in 1965.
At county level, Joan represented Fife County for over 30 years and also won the Fife Ladies Championship no less than 18 times.
Andrew McKinlay, CEO of Scottish Golf said, “On behalf of Scottish Golf, we would like to express our deepest condolences to Joan’s family and friends at this difficult time. Joan was a three-time winner of the Scottish Ladies Championship and represented Scotland with distinction at so many high profile events within the amateur game.”
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, Joan’s funeral will be private.
