BRUNTSFIELD Links Golfing Society
plans to host their first Pro-Am.
It will be as part of their annual charity fundraising drive, which will also celebrate a major makeover for the Edinburgh course.

Work is nearing completion on an ambitious two-year, £1.2 million project led by internationally renowned course architects Mackenzie and Ebert.

The transformation of the capital course will be complete by the start of the 2019 season.

Club captain Mike Smith revealed a July 26 date has been confirmed for a Pro-Am which will feature leading PGA Scotland professionals and benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

“We are delighted with the progress being made and the new-look course will be in peak condition,” he said.

“It is being elevated to a new level and this is an ideal opportunity to enjoy the new challenge.

“The response from members to the Pro-Am has been excellent and we have only a very limited number of team spots available.

“The top 15 professionals in the Scottish Order of Merit are being joined by five invited pros, with a 2pm shotgun start.”

Last year Bruntsfield members and guests raised around £5,000 for the Doddie Weir Foundation and the former Scotland rugby star’s fight against Motor Neurone Disease.

The entry fee for a team of three, joining a top PGA Scotland pro, is £500 plus VAT, which will boost the prize fund and the charity.

The day includes a pre-golf snack and prize-giving dinner.

The format is one net score from three counting with maximum handicap allowances of 18 for Men and 28 for Women.

Bookings can be made by contacting Callum Taylor at the club by telephone on 0131 336 1479 or by e-mail
