Brunston Castle Golf Course took part in the National Golf Club Challenge recently, and in sunny conditions a great day for golfing fanatics raised £2250 for our injured armed forces.
The National Golf Club Challenge is bringing together hundreds of golf clubs and thousands of golfers to compete, have fun and to raise funds for the popular Help for Heroes charity.
The idea for the National Golf Club Challenge was born out of wanting to assist the excellent Help for Heroes charity. The solution was to organise a national golf competition in which every golfer in the United Kingdom could participate.
Lee Westwood, one of the Challenge patrons, has given his full support to the national fundraising initiative, saying: “Together we have the chance to change the lives of those who have sacrificed and endured so much so we might live full and free lives. Many brave men and women have suffered often the most horrendous injuries in the line of duty, and these heroes deserve our wholehearted support.”
The 10 leading golfers from the Brunston Castle event go forward to at the Grand Final, which will be held over two days 11/12 October at one of the UK’s premier golfing venues – The Belfry.
They 10 qualifiers from Brunston Castle Golf Course are:
1: David McMillan
2: Scott McCahill
3: Steven Rarity
4: Sam Cochrane
5: Martin Hoggitt
6: Paul Torrance
7: Alec Dunlop
8: Peter Gray
9: George Scobie
10: Paul Robinson
The 2010 National Golf Club Challenge winners will be presented with the Lee Westwood Cup, a stunning golf trophy, commissioned and donated by Wedgwood especially for the Challenge competition, in aid of Help for Heroes.
Brunston Castle Golf Course general manager Cheryl Steven commented: “I would like to personally thank all Brunston Castle Golf Club members, visitors and staff who participated in this event and assisted in its organisation. All their efforts made this day such a successful event. I would also like to thank all the local businesses as detailed who kindly donated prizes to help with our raffle to raise funds.”
Brunston Castle Golf Course
Brunston Castle Golf Course is situated in the most scenic part of Ayrshire. Located in the naturally sheltered valley of the Water of Girvan and overlooked by the rolling South Carrick hills, this championship length, par 72 parkland course is in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Designed by renowned architect, Donald Steel, the course is a testing 6,700 yards from the white tees. Clever use of the natural contours of the land and the creation of a number of strategically placed ponds have created some spectacular holes. Bisected by the River Girvan, dotted with mature trees and surrounded by the picturesque landscape of the Bargany Estate, each of the holes has features that will remain memorable long after the round has finished. The greens, too, have been constructed to a particularly high standard and provide excellent putting surfaces throughout the year. Again, great thought has gone into the contouring of these and some are notoriously difficult to read.
The undulating nature of the well groomed fairways and the elevation of some of the greens can make the estimation of yardages a risky business. Accurate knowledge of a distance will be of great assistance to those looking for a chance to score well on this excellent course.
