The vivacious golfer with the adventurous spirit
Carly Booth became the youngest ladies’ club champion in Britain at the age of 11, in 2003. Then, in 2017, she became the youngest-ever Scot to qualify for the Ladies European Tour. She’s won five professional tournaments, including the Scottish Open and the Swiss Open. She represented Europe in the Junior Ryder Cup in 2006 and the Queens in 2017.
