Did you know?

Hall enjoyed a highly successful amateur career, which included a unique record of wins in the Girls' British Open Amateur Championship (2012), British Ladies Amateur Championship (2013), and a Smyth Salva (shared with Lydia Ko) as the lowest scoring amateur at the Women's British Open at St Andrews in 2013. Hall also competed in the Junior Curtis Cup in 2013 and full Curtis Cup in 2014.

Within three years of turning professional, Hall played her way onto the 2017 Solheim Cup team where she was narrowly beaten in the singles by the experienced Paula Creamer. Although still without a win on the Ladies European Tour, at the end of the 2017 season Hall was the clear leader in Top 10 finishes. This translated into almost three times the earnings of any other player, and with that came the 2017 LET Order of Merit ... by a considerable margin.

Hall's lack of LPGA Tour or Ladies European Tour success was resoundingly remedied in 2018 when she scooped the Women's British Open at Royal Lytham & St Anne's. As the only player to shoot four sub-70 rounds, Hall's win also gave her a much coveted major championship title.

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
