It was a day of banter and stellar sportsmanship at the second annual Creditfix Charity Golf Day as players swung into action to raise cash for charity yesterday (May 27).
Eighteen teams took to the lush greens of the respected Gourock course in a bid to be crowned champions, raising much needed funds for Shelter and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Sporting stars Andy Goram, Rab Douglas, Sean Crighton, David Hutton, Gary Harkins, Ludo Roy and Creditfix ambassador Gail Porter joined guests at the charity extravaganza, playing through both rain and shine.
The weather didn’t dampen players spirits as they vied to pot a coveted hole in one at the seventh to scoop a top prize of £10,000 and although no one was lucky enough to take home the cash, there were plenty of goodies on offer at the auction and raffle.
From 4 ball golf offers at Turnberry Golf Course to hospitality tickets to see Still Game at the SSE Hydro courtesy of Capital Radio and tickets to a comedy show at The Stand in Glasgow, there was something for everyone.
Speaking of the event, organiser Danny Knox said: “Once again the Creditfix and Carrington Dean annual golf day has been a resounding success.
“We had 90 people join us for a great day of sportsmanship and we appreciate everyone taking the time to support two great causes.
“Special thanks goes to Gourock Golf Club for their hospitality and to everyone who donated prizes to the raffle and auction.
“Creditfix and Carrington Dean have pledged to raise a combined total of £20,000 for our nominated charities Shelter and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and the golf day plays an integral part in helping us achieve that goal.
“The total is still being calculated, however, we’re hoping to smash last year’s total of £3,500.”
