This tournament is held to perpetuate the memory of Babe Zaharias who was an exceptional US athlete and golfer, winning the British Ladies’ Amateur title at Gullane in 1947. She then turned professional and went on to win every major title before she died of cancer in 1956 aged just 45 years.
Her husband, George, donated a solid silver bowl inscribed “Serbin Open – Miami 1955” to be competed for by "Lady Golfers in Scotland”. Torphin Hill GC hosted this prestigious championship for many years until Whitekirk took up the mantle, raising many thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
This is a new era for the rose bowl with East Lothian Ladies’ County Golf Association taking guardianship of the trophy and Gullane Ladies’ GC kindly offering to host the event for the next two years – 2017 marking the 70th anniversary of Babe winning the British Ladies at Gullane Golf Club.
Proceeds will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
