Professional golfer Carly Booth.

Overview:


I grew up on a farm outside a small village called Comrie, in Perthshire, Scotland. Growing up I
competed at national level in gymnastics and went to Stirling Swimming Club. My oldest
brother played golf so I followed in his footsteps. My dad built a small golf course on the farm
for both of us to work on our golf games.


I had a very successful amateur golf career, starting out with becoming the the youngest ever
winner of a Ladies Club Championship in Britain at the age of 11, but most notably being the
youngest ever GB&I Curtis Cup player at the time in 2008.


I turned golf professional in December 2009 when I became the youngest Scot to ever gain
their Ladies European Tour (LET) card at the age of 17 while finishing my last year at
Glenalmond College. I have won twice on the LET and once on the Ladies Access Tour.
Mixing with people comes naturally to me, having been in the golf spotlight from a very early
age. I am a confident, friendly and sociable person who loves to entertain, especially when I
get the chance to show off my gymnastic skills.


I have a great deal of networking experience due to my requirement to find sponsorship to
cover my tournament costs every year. This has also helped me run my own charity golf day for
the past two years, where I have raised money for British Disability Powerlifting.


As well as golf, I have done various TV and magazine interviews, appeared on a couple of
children’s TV programs, took part in a CNN promotion video for “Incredible India” and have
become a regular in youtube videos for the LET, Rick Shiels golf, Peter Finch Golf and Golf
Punk.


I have also done some modelling, the highlight being part of the 2013 ESPN The Magazine’s
“body issue." Other modelling assignments include Sport Uncovered UK, World Wide Golf
magazine, Golf Punk magazine, Nike, Puma and Volvik.


Education:


Started my high school education at Morrisons Academy in Crieff, Scotland. Was there for two
years, then went to America for two years. My first year was at the David Leadbetter Golf
Academy in Bradenton, Florida and the second year at Red Mountain High School in
Scottsdale, Arizona. Obtained the first ever golf scholarship at Glenalmond College, near Perth,
Scotland for my final two years. Left there with 3 A levels in English Literature, Physical
Education and Art.
