It is with great sadness I have to announce that West Vets'  Sally Coster died yesterday at home on Monday 9th February 2016. 

Sally played off a handicap of 4 in her early golfing years and was selected to play for the Scottish Vets Team at that time

A Past Captain of D&A and Past President of SVLGA had been a member of many clubs --St Andrews (St Rule), Crail, Hilton Park, Buchanan Castle  and Troon Ladies

Sally was President of the Scottish Vets Team when West Vets' Past Captain Helen Faulds was Captain of the Scottish Vets Team

Helen says -

"She was a huge help to me in many ways" .
"She was extremely knowledgeable about golfing matters, very observant at watching players and able to see faults in their swing. (I know that because she did it with me  !!)
"The players in the team were very happy to take her advice which was always given in a quiet measured manner. This ability was put to good use as she was asked to become a selector for the Scottish Teams which she really enjoyed."
"Sally had a very dry sense of humour and was extremely popular with our players, the Irish and the English players and the Presidents of all other divisions."

Sally will be most certainly missed by all.

The funeral will take place  at Maryhill CrematoriumG23 5AAGlasgow at 3pm, Thursday 18th February.
