The Scottish Golf Union has announced today that Dunfermline Building Society will become the Official Partner of the Scottish Boys Area Team Championship being hosted on Sunday 6 May at Peebles in the Borders.
Dunfermline Building Society has been in partnership with the Scottish Golf Union since 2007 and previously sponsored the Junior Masters and Scottish Junior Club of the Year Awards. Dunfermline Building Society has continued to promote their Fairway Savers affinity account for golfers, a savings product which rewards golf customers and provides investment for junior golf in Scotland.
David Gibb, Affinity Accounts Manager for Dunfermline Building Society, welcomed the move to give their full support to the Scottish Boys Area Team Championship:
“We have enjoyed a very productive relationship with the Scottish Golf Union over the last three years and we continue to support grass roots golf in Scotland through the Fairway Savers account. Many of the players who will feature in the Championship will have played in the Junior Masters event previously, so it’s encouraging to see that our investment has helped their development.”
Ross Duncan, Marketing & Sponsorship Manager for the SGU, added:
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Dunfermline Building Society, who have been very supportive of junior golf in Scotland in recent years. The Fairway Savers account has been a very popular product among members of our affiliated clubs and we hope that Dunfermline Building Society’s support of the Boys Area Team Championship will encourage even more golfers to open an account.”
The Championship, which features teams made up of the four best young players from each of the SGU’s sixteen Area Associations, was first staged in 1977 and was won by the North of Scotland for the first time last year. Peebles stages the event for the third time having been hosts in 1988 and 1993, when it was won by Fife and Dumbartonshire respectively.
Host club Peebles, which has a Dunfermline Building Society branch in the town, currently boasts two Scotland Boys U16s internationalists in Daniel Flannery and Craig Howie and the duo will be hoping that they can use their local knowledge to help the Borders team to victory on home soil.
