Scottish Golf Awards 2017
Come and have a ball at the Scottish Golf Awards and celebrate achievements at all levels of the game when the annual awards ceremony returns to the Edinburgh Corn Exchange on Friday 24 February.
One of the nation’s most popular golfing occasions, the regular sold-out event helps raise around £25,000 for the Scottish Golf Charity and other good causes.
Organised by Scottish Golf, the Awards recognise the achievements of the game’s leading Tour professionals and top amateurs, as well as the work done by PGA coaches and grass roots heroes through the Volunteer and Club of the Year categories.
The 2017 ceremony will be hosted by BBC broadcaster and Deacon Blue drummer Dougie Vipond, who will be joined by leading sports broadcaster and golf enthusiast Alison Walker, who makes her Scottish Golf Awards debut.
Beatson Cancer Charity is the event’s new charity partner, an organisation committed to securing funding to support and enhance the treatment of cancer, care and wellbeing of patients and their families.
Paul Lawrie, the 1999 Open champion and European Ryder Cup vice-captain at Hazeltine this year, is already among leading golf names committed to attending the Awards night on 24 February.
Lawrie, who will present the annual Adam Hunter Award to a promising young golfer in memory of his former coach, said: “The Scottish Golf Awards is a fantastic evening, showcasing all areas of the game, as well as raising a huge amount of money for charity. The Beatson is a charity close to my heart, given the care they offered Adam, and I look forward to joining fellow golfers and golf fans to further support the charity on this great night of celebration.”
Tickets are now on sale for the 2017 Scottish Golf Awards, with a table of 10 costing £950 inclusive of VAT and individual tickets £95 per person. The package includes a champagne reception, three-course meal with wine, and the chance to mingle with Scotland’s leading golfers and famous sports stars.
