Fiona Byiers has recently been appointed overall club captain at Inverallochy Gollf Club. There are not many lady members of golf clubs, certainly in Scotland, who are club captains of men and women.

Fiona started golf at Longside and joined Inverallochy in 1999. She has a handicap of 22 and has been Ladies Captain at Inverallochy 2004-2006, 2008-2010 and again in 2013.

Inverallochy member George Young, who is secretary of the North-east District of the Scottish Golf Union, commented:

"With the Equality Act and the ongoing move towards the amalgamation of the SGU and Scottish Ladies Golf Association it was only right that we at Inverallochy accept Fiona's nomination for Club Captain."

Fiona Byiers, pictured, was born in Galashiels and educated there before moving to Methlick for her senior education. Fiona is married to Neil and they have two sons, Colin and Craig and a granddaughter, Stephanie.
