£500 raised for charity at final of DF 

Communications Business Golf League
Finalists in a North-east business golf competition have raised £500 for a charity that helps those affected by motor neurone disease.
Teams from 12 North-east companies teed-off at the prestigious Castle Course, St Andrews in the finals of the DF Communications Business Golf League.
Stuart Forsyth and Stuart Hill, of Glacier Energy, clinched top prize on the day – the culmination of a summer of competition. In addition to the trophy, the pair also collected a Castle Course framed flag and a magnum of champagne each for their efforts.
Winner Stuart Forsyth said: “We are delighted to be involved in such a great event; the format is fantastic for networking and really works for us as a business. To win is the icing on the cake. We're grateful to DF Communications for running the league.”
Each year the winning team nominates a charity to benefit from funds raised during the subsequent year’s event. Money raised from this year’s tournament will be donated to the MNDScotland charity, which was nominated by the 2014 winners Fugro.
The Glacier team has selected Alzheimer Scotland and Marie Curie as the charities to benefit from the 2016 competition.
Good weather resulted in much better scoring this year. 
The Westburn Solutions team of Mark McCausland and Lewis Bannister finished as runners-up, while Duncan Booth and Shaun Buchan, of Kore Solutions, came third.
Under the Stableford format, Glacier Energy won courtesy of a countback, having tied on 70 points with Westburn Solutions. Kore Solutions took third place on a countback, having tied with DF Communications on 69.
DF Communications sales director Craig Forsyth, who played for his company in the final, said: “It was a fantastic day out, with the scores reflecting the much improved weather over last year’s event. The sunshine also contributed to the great atmosphere of the final, with everyone involved thoroughly enjoying themselves.
It was not only a success for the event and the players, but a success for MNDScotland with funds raised to help them continue their valuable work.
“Our congratulations to Glacier, who put in an outstanding performance to secure the trophy. Stuart's actually my brother so he'll no doubt enjoy bragging rights for the next while.
“As each year passes, the league continues to build from strength to strength. Taking part in the competition provides a valuable opportunity for business people to network outside of work.
“Preparations for next year are already underway and we are confident it will be just as successful.”
Lewis Bannister, of Westburn Solutions, and Neale Watson, of Stork, shared the prize for nearest the pin.
A total of 36 teams from across the North-east teed-off at a variety of local courses between April and September. The Business Golf League is played in a four-ball format with five or six teams in each division.
