Charity golf event swings into action

A CHARITY fun day to mark the opening of the new golf season at Virgin Active in Milngavie kicks off on Saturday with special guest Alastair Kellock from Glasgow Warriors rugby taking centre stage.

The event at the former Esporta Dougalston course starts at 7.30am and the Warriors’ captain will hit the first ball of the season at the club. It is hoped around 160 golfers will turn up and get the opportunity to follow suit and play a round themselves.

Virgin Active staff will be on hand to deliver refreshments at the 9th Tee.

Afternoon activities will include a barbecue accompanied by 11 piece swing band, Swingfellows.

The evening will be rounded off with a prize giving ceremony followed by a charity raffle where football match tickets, golfing outfits, Virgin Active personal training sessions and spa vouchers are up for grabs, with all proceeds going to children’s charity Sparks.
