SBH Scotland is delighted to announce the tremendous success of its Annual Corporate Golf Day, held on Thursday, August 31st at the prestigious Dundonald Links in Ayrshire. This year's event raised an astonishing £13,000, making it a day of triumph both on and off the course.
Dundonald Links was a fantastic choice for the day; a superb course, state-of-the-art clubhouse, and incredibly friendly and helpful staff, all provided the perfect backdrop for this exceptional day of golf. Participants and guests alike have unanimously praised the event, dubbing it "SBH Scotland’s best golf day yet."
The competition on the course was fierce, with players demonstrating their skills and sportsmanship throughout the day. The coveted Nearest the Pin prize was claimed by Jonny Riley, while Craig Sloan's impressive drive earned him the title of Longest Drive champion.
The pinnacle of the day was the team competition, and it was AD+ Accountants, led by Michael Donnelly, who emerged as the overall champions, showcasing their exceptional golfing prowess. In a closely contested second place was Grant's Foods, captained by John Fallon, and rounding out the top three was The Fantastic Four, led by Alex Atkinson and Douglas McEwan. Congratulations to all the teams for their outstanding performances!
