Pro-Am raises £7000 for Scottish Charities

  • 2 December 2015
Once again this year, the club's annual Pro-Am competition attracted a large field of PGA Scotland professional golfers and local amateurs and raised a significant amount for 2 chosen charities, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland & Guide Dogs Scotland.

The Pro-Am in conjunction with events organised by the Ladies Committee raised £7000, shared equally between the two charities.

Terry Thorpe the Mobility Team Manager from Guide Dogs Scotland and Clare Cogan Turner, Communications Manager from Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland received the money from Club Captain Martin Dickson at a recent presentation at the club.

Commenting on the success of the Annual Pro-Am which since its inception 30yrs ago has raised in excess of £300k, and remains one of the most successful club Pro-Am’s in Scotland, Martin said “This year was a huge challenge, the weather was very much not on our side, but a huge team effort here from  the Pro-Am team, the greens staff and our clubhouse staff once again made it a success. Thanks to all who helped.”

Both the charities expressed their appreciation and that the monies received would help them support those in need in Scottish communities.
