Heather started playing golf at 10 years old having been introduced to the game by her dad. By the age of 15 Heather got her first cap for Scotland at under 16 level. Representing Dunblane New Golf Club, Heather was capped for Scotland at every level: U18, U21 and ladies in almost every major amateur team event in Europe.

Winning the Scottish Girls Championship at Glenbervie Golf Club in 2001, Heather accepted a golf scholarship at College, then University in the United States, where she was the captain for the women’s team at San Diego State University in her final year. In 2005 Heather was selected for the Great Britain & Ireland team to play against Europe in the Vagliano Trophy where she was on the winning team. A month later Heather reached the pinnacle of her amateur career when she won the British Ladies Strokeplay Championship at Nairn Golf Club.

Achieving a handicap of +4 Heather turned professional in September 2007 at the Scottish Ladies Open, a European Tour event held at The Carrick on Loch Lomond. With over 60 European Tour starts, highlights include a 6th place finish at the 2013 Scottish Ladies Open, an opening 67 to be leading the Turkish Ladies Open in 2014 and of course, two wins on the LET Access Tour (Sweden 2013 & Belguim 2017).

A Class A PGA qualified professional and former WPGA Champion, Heather now combines her playing commitments with coaching. Having spent a couple of years teaching in the Algarve, Portugal, she has become a very well respected coach amongst her clients and fellow professionals. Working mostly but not exclusively with women, her passion for the game comes across in her coaching. Now back in the UK, Heather is committed to making a difference to the ladies game and getting more people involved in the sport.
