Carnoustie Golf Links elects Pat Sawers as new Chairman

January 28, 2014

The Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee (CGLMC) has voted Pat Sawers as new Chairman.

Sawers, whose father served on the Links Management Committee as Greens Convenor, has been a season ticket holder at Carnoustie and member of the oldest functioning ladies golf club in the world, Carnoustie Ladies, since 1997.

She subsequently became Captain of the ladies club in 2010, the same year she joined the CGLMC. A year later, Sawers became PR convenor and was elected Vice Chairman in 2012.

"I'm simply overjoyed to represent Carnoustie as Chairman. The Links is in my blood, has been a significant part of my family's life and is something I'm extremely proud to be associated with," said Sawers, who currently plays of a handicap of 9.

"With the Amateur Championship returning in 2015, I'm taking over at the start of another exciting chapter in the history of our great Links, and I'm thoroughly looking forward to the coming years.

"Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee has a first class Board of Directors, with a wealth of experience. I'm honoured to have been elected."

The Links Management Committee has managed the golf courses at Carnoustie since 1901, aside from a brief, 12 year period between 1967 and 1979 during which Carnoustie Town Council had control. Sawers is the first lady to be elected Chairman and follows in the footsteps of her uncle, who was elected Chairman in 1979.
