A ‘hole’ lot of fun for a great cause

Douglas Park Golf Club in Bearsden, is hosting a summer spectacular 28th annual Pro-Am tournament with all proceeds going to disadvantaged people in Africa.

DM Hall Chartered Surveyors will be title sponsors for the event on Thursday, August 18, which is raising funds for the club’s chosen charity, On Call Africa.

The popular par 69 course off Milngavie Road will host teams consisting of one leading PGA professional from Scotland’s Tartan Tour and three amateurs, on greens which have been meticulously prepared to USGA standards.

Competitors in sponsored teams will play an 18-hole Stroke Play format and a meal after their game and a free hospitality bar.

On Call Africa was founded in Glasgow by three doctors, one of whose fathers is a longstanding member of Douglas Park. The doctors work in the UK but also regularly visit Zambia to run clinics, train health workers and deliver health education. For more information about the event email: janetdow@gmail.com
