Meg Farquhar (1910 - ?) was the first female professional golfer in Britain when, aged 19, she became assistant to George Smith, the resident Professional at the Moray Golf Club in 1929. This list of golf players, known as golfers includes the most notable players of the sport, who are almost exclusively professionals in the sport. ...
As an assistant professional, Farquhar learned all of the skills that a club professional needed. She was the first woman golf professional in Britain to play in a normally all men national championship on her home course at Lossiemouth. This was the Scottish Professional Championship of 1933 finishing ahead of many of her male colleagues. In recognition of her achievement, she was presented by the True Temper Corporation of America, with a set of the recently introduced steel shafted clubs. Lossiemouth, is a burgh in Moray, Scotland. ...
Farquhar was reinstated to the amateur game in 1949 and reached the semi-final of the Scottish Ladies, played at Troon of that same year, losing to the eventual winner. She played in all of the Home International Championship in 1950 played in Newcastle, Co. Down winning all of her matches. Again in 1951 she was selected for Scotland, and repeated her achievements of the previous year by winning all her matches. Inexplicably, the selectors did not ask her to play again for Scotland although she still continued to play to a very high standard. Troon is a town in South Ayrshire, Scotland and also a village on the outskirts of Camborne in Cornwall. ...
She won the Moray championship nine times between 1949 and 1969 while winning the Northern Counties Championship on five occasions.
