I'm sure that all of you, our loyal Scottish Golf View readers, will be sorry to learn that our Editor and main contributor, Colin Farquharson has decided to call a halt to updating the website.

Scottish Golf View started in 2006,  and reached it's peak audience in August 2015, when over 178.000 page views were reached..    

Colin should be justly proud that over 11 million page views have been recorded since the first post.

I'm sure you will join with me in wishing Colin a long and happy retirement.

Best wishes Gillian Kirkwood Webmaster .

From CaroFellGolf -- Colin has done a fantastic amount over the years for news covering many events including women's golf. -- I wish him well in his retirement.
