At this week's annual general meeting of Lanarkshire Ladies County Golf Association Pamela Pretswell was awarded Honorary Membership of the Association. Captain Lesley Lloyd said of Pamela: "What a player! What a year! She represented GB and Ireland in the 36th Curtis Cup Match against the United States at Essex County Club, Massachusetts.
Was 6th in European Ladies Amateur Individual Championship
Was Runner Up in the Austrian Ladies Amateur Championship - (including a nine-birdie round of six-under-par 66)
Won the British Ladies Amateur Stroke Play Championshionship
Was SLGA Champion of Champions
Represented Scotland at European Ladies Team Championship, with Scotland winning the Bronze Medal
Represented Scotland at Ladies Home Internationals – Pamela holed the winning putt to ensure Scotland won the Home Internationals Matches for the first time in 19 years.
You have just heard what an outstanding year 2010 has been for Pamela Pretswell. Pamela was a top-ranked tennis junior, rubbing shoulders with Andy Murray and co at the age of 14.
However, she swapped tennis for golf  7 years ago and as they say the rest is history! To reach the top of the amateur game in such a short period of time is quite amazing and we are immensely proud to have her as one of our members. Not only is Pamela a fantastic golfer, she is in her Honours year at Glasgow University studying Business and Management and despite her very busy schedule (not to mention jet lag following the Curtis Cup) Pamela found time to come to Kilmacolm to caddy for the team!
Pamela, in recognition of your outstanding achievements, but in particular being selected to represent Great Britain and Ireland in the Curtis Cup and winning the British Open Strokeplay Championship I would ask you to accept Honorary membership of Lanarkshire Ladies’ County Golf Association."
