Alison Murdoch profile information from 2005 Spring Edition of Flagstick Golf Magazine
Alison Murdoch is a known quantity in Canadian Amateur golf circles. Her record speaks for itself. When Alison is in the field of a tournament, other players need to take notice. Winning ways established early in her golfing career means she will always be a force to reckon with. Fortunately for her competitors, the quality of her play is matched by an equally winning personality making her a popular companion on the links, whether being played at a social or competitive level. She just loves the game of golf, and it shows.
Although she loves her new locale of Victoria, B.C., Alison has many pleasant recollections of life and golf in the National Capital area. She spent her summers at various cottages in the vicinity of Chelsea, Quebec, playing golf and tennis, swimming and boating. “First and foremost, I remember growing up with the game at Larrimac Golf Club in Chelsea. Junior day was the highlight of the week. We played golf, ate the lunch brought from home with a soft drink (a real treat) from the machine at the club and then played more golf.” As a junior, Alison collected most of Larrimac’s hardware, participated in CLGA – Ottawa District events and eventually won the Quebec Junior Girl’s Championship in 1967.
After her junior years, Alison continued a very successful amateur golf career including numerous club championships at both Larrimac and Royal Ottawa Golf Clubs.
There are not many guarantees in elite amateur golf but Alison Murdoch can lean on one fact: Golfers and friends on all sides of the country swell with pride when that “girl from Larrimac” takes on the golfing world and wins time and time again, achieving the success she so richly deserves.
