County team Member Roseanne Niven is to join the University of California Berkeley early in the New Year.
Roseanne, a member of Crieff Golf Club, has been one of Scotland’s best young female golfers for a number of years. Her first national title was the Scottish Under-16 girls’ open championship and she was one of the youngest ever winners of the Perth & Kinross women’s county title in 2004. Roseanne was also a member of the successful Perth & Kinross team which won the Northern Division Inter Counties Team Championships in June at Crieff Golf Club. Apart from winning the Scottish Under-18 girls title at Peebles this year, Roseanne was a member of the Scotland team who brought home the girls’ home internationals team trophy from Portstewart, Northern Ireland.
Roseanne has been awarded a full golf scholarship by the University of California Berkeley.
The universities of North Carolina, Virginia and Vanderbilt were also prepared to offer Roseanne a golf scholarship and she visited the United States to see what their facilities were like before making up her mind to enrol at the University of California Berkeley.
Roseanne said last night:
“I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to further my golfing career and to be educated at a top university such as Berkeley. It is a very exciting time in my life and I cannot wait to get started in January.”
Nancy McDaniel, the head women’s coach of University of California Berkeley, said:
“We are delighted to have Roseanne Niven join our women’s golf team. She succeeds two of our most accomplished players, also from Scotland – Anne Walker and Vikki Laing.
“Scottish players seem to love California and really fit into the Cal Golf system. Roseanne brings a great deal of experience on an international level that will undoubtedly impact the team upon her arrival.”

Everyone at Perth & Kinross Ladies County Golf Association wishes Roseanne well.
