Our Annual Charity Golf Day
Another successful fun day at Duns Golf Course
Rotary Club of Duns
Charity Golf Day, 3rd August 2017
Despite a weather forecast of heavy rain and lightning storms, the inclement weather for the most part skirted around Duns, leaving the golf course, which was in pristine condition, to host the Rotary Club annual fund raising Charity Golf Day.
Twenty-two teams of four took part in this years’ event, some travelling from as far afield as Edinburgh and Northumberland to take part. Within one team there was a holidaying golfer from New Zealand, and he like all other participants, had a great time vying for a variety of prizes that recognised golfing skills and took part in our raffle, with first class prizes donated by both Rotarians and the many organisations that supported this event.
The Club wish to thank its Main Sponsors; Farne of Scotland, Greenvale AP and Simpsons Malt; as well are the many and diverse local organisations who sponsored each of the course holes. And of course a big thank you to the team at Duns Golf Course.
The Black Bull Hotel, Duns, Golfing Team won the stableford competition, congratulations go to Stewart Patterson, Russell Patterson, Keith Cockburn and Ian Renton.
Funds raised totaled £2,500 which will be invested by the Rotary Club of Duns in supporting local community projects and charities.
