Scottish Advertising Golf Day
Time: 11am - 7pm
We are delighted to announce the fifth tournament supported by NABS in memory of two stalwarts of the Advertising world. We are indebted to News Scotland have generously agreed to join us as main sponsor for this event, and those who support contributed hugely to the success of last year’s event.
This year it will be held at the Archerfield Links, which has hosted the Scottish Ladies Open and firmly established in the world of golf. Golf has never been more inviting than this: the 18 hole Fidra Links is a unique mixture of pine forest and fast-running links.
The competition will be decided as last year over 18 holes from a shotgun start with teams of 2 playing as fourballs. You will be allocated your starting tee on arrival. Each team of 2 will record their best GROSS score at each hole plus their stableford point at that hole, marked against the team member who scored.
The maximum handicap allowance is 24 and you will receive ¾ handicap with halves rounded up. Please indicate if you have an official Club Handicap and your home Golf Club
The proposed format and timings for the day will be as follows:
11.00: Tea, Coffee and Bacon Rolls and registration
13.00: 18 Holes of Golf on the Championship Fidra Course, for a shot gun start.
Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin plus Special Prizes
18.30 for 19.00: Golfers Supper in a Private Suite & Prize giving and raffle for numerous prizes
Invitees will be asked to donate £250 per team for the chance to compete for this very special Trophy with all proceeds being donated to NABS. The field will be limited to 36 teams of 2 sent out groups of 4 players, so first come, first served! We have 8 notes of interest including sponsors for the 36 teams to date, so please don’t delay.
For those travelling from far and wide there is potentially accommodation available at Archerfield, and locally in North Berwick. Many stayed overnight to share, and savour the day last year too.
