Nairn to hold Women's Golf Curtis Cup tournament in 2012

I may be away from Nairn at present (in Spain, where the weather is more clement at this time of year), but Nairn is where I live for most of the year so I take an interest in developments there. Anyway, I've just read that the 2012 Curtis Cup will be held at Nairn Golf Club (between 8-10 June), one of the two golf clubs in the town (*). The Curtis Cup is a competition "between the best women amateur golfers in Britain and Ireland, and America". Nairn Golf Club celebrates its 125th anniversary that year; the last major tournament it hosted was the Walker Cup (the equivalent male amateur golfing tournament involving the same three countries) in 1999.

So major sporting activity in the UK in 2012 won't just be centred on London, where I understand there is a minor sporting event called the Olympics taking place.

(*) The other golf club in Nairn is the Nairn Dunbar Golf Club.
