NEW: Perthshire Kilted Golf Day Success
52nd Donation – Poland
You can read about our work in the Past Projects area, but here’s the quick version. Ten years and our first 49 consecutive donations condensed into three minutes…
By Hannibal Smith
The First Perthshire Kilted Golf day took place at Murrayshall Golf Club on a lovely October day with six teams entering the Texas Scramble. There was some interesting garments being worn from Kilts to tartan trousers/pyjama bottoms.
After a bacon roll and a coffee/couple of pints we were good to go. There were various challenges around the course with a couple of nearest the pin and longest drive competitions as well as the usual challenges which I seem to encounter like water, trees and lack of ability. Luckily the Texas Scramble format was a good leveler and by the time we were back in the clubhouse tucking into our roast platter washed down with a few more pints, all the teams had gone round the course in under par scores and there was only 4 shots separating the teams. The winning team, ‘Who needs fitz anyway?’, were made up of Peter Simpson, Craig Russell, Chris Hamilton and Bob Grimmond who went round in 8 under par and they generously donated their prize of a Fourball round at Murrayshall into the evenings auction.
We then headed down the road into Scone for the evening’s entertainment at the Wheel Inn, where the non golfers joined us, as did Ted Christopher and we had a great evening singing, dancing and drinking. We managed to have a raffle and an auction before we all had too much to drink, where there were plenty of prizes, such as signed football tops, signed captains armbands, as well as the usual alcohol and chocolate.
Big thanks to Murrayshall Golf Course, The Wheel Inn, Ted Christopher and everyone who donated prizes for the raffle auction but most of all to my golf expert Duncan Paton who organised the golf part of the day.
The total raised for the day was £1012.
