Try and Score Celebrity Golf

Try and Score Celebrity Golf

Bookings are starting to come in for our Try and Score Celebrity Golf Day on 26 August at the Dalmahoy Golf Club. Last year the event was a tremendous success and raised nearly £10k for the charity. Can we beat it this year? 6 teams already away so another 12 to go. Can you help or perhaps let friends, colleagues etc know that this is happening? Sporting names last year included Scott Hastings, George Burley, Andy Nicol, Jim Renwick, Gordon Smith and John Robertson.
