Charity Golf Day at Aberdour Supports Junior Golfers
Youngsters at Aberdour Golf Club will benefit from the annual charity golf day organised by Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay Rotary Club on 18 May. Some of the £5,500 raised will go back to the club to support junior golf and tuition will not be limited to club members. In response to the Scottish Government's initiative to introduce all nine year olds to the sport local youngsters, who are not club members, will also be able to participate in the club's development programme.
More than 70 golfers, playing in teams of 3, competed in the Rotary event in perfect conditions. Alistair Steel was the individual winner with 47 stableford points and he was also a member of the winning team which included John Liston and Hamish Hardie. Anne Dacey was top lady. Participants enjoyed an excellent meal in the recently refurbished clubhouse with Alec Parker keeping order as master of ceremonies and George MacNeil, as the after dinner speaker, proving once again that his wit is as sharp as his sprinting once was.
The Rotary Club's vice president, Bob Tait, thanked the golf club for its continued support and noted that many of the participants had been involved with the event over many years and its success was due to strong local support. Among the other organisations that will benefit are Aberdour Primary School, Piggybank Kids and children visiting Fife from Chernobyl.
