St Andrews Provides Back Drop For Business Fours Final

St Andrews provided a stunning back drop for the climax of Scotland’s national business golf tournament.  Teams from throughout Scotland came from as far as Inverness and South Ayrshire with Glasgow and Edinburgh based companies well represented not least by final sponsors White Tree Chiropractic.

The tournament has been supporting the work of it’s two joint charity partners, the Yard Scotland and Beatson Cancer Charity raising over £4,000 throughout the duration of the events.  Business Fours offers the opportunity for players to network with others in their profession while also raising funds for a worthy cause.

The charity raffle was generously supported on the day with fantastic prizes donated by MacDonald Cardrona, Trump Turnberry, Village Hotel Club, SEC Glasgow and the host venue St Andrews Fairmont.  Players from CityFibre, Turcan Connell, A.C. Whyte & Co and Brewin Dolphin all walked away with a prize.

There was additional fundraising at the final in honour of the late Neil Donaldson who was due to take part in the tournament but sadly passed away the day before competing.  Mark Murray from Kames Capital paid tribute to a dear friend and ex colleague and was on hand to accept the donation made by participants who donned bright Royal & Awesome golfing attire in his honour and contributed to a total of £433.90 raised.  By donating players were entered into a draw to play with special guests David Tanner and Jim Melrose, who managed to scoop up one of the Nearest the Pin prizes.

The tournament has been well supported by industry partners the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, the Scottish Property Federation, ScotlandIS and Scottish Construction Now.

In 20 degree heat play on the course was of a suitably high standard with players justifying their positions as qualifiers.  Companies were split up to provide an opportunity to build new relationships with counterparts in the relaxed setting of the golf course.

Presented by Anna Robinson from the Yard, the winning mixed fourball came from a combination of Turcan Connell, South Ayrshire Council, SEC and A.C. Whyte & Co with Andrew Ross, Craig Pettigrew, Scott Cassidy and Aidan Moore all spurring each other on to play some wonderful golf.

David Tanner and Jim Melrose provided the entertainment before handing out the individual prizes with Steven Brown from Equator Scotland first stepping up to collect his Longest Drive prize with a smashing hit into the stiff Fife wind.  Martin Fisher from SEC Glasgow stepped up to collect the Longest Putt, holing out from all of 30 feet on the 18th green.  Nick Gilmore from Edinburgh Airport saw his stunning shot on hole 6 go closest to the pin on his way to a scintillating one under front 9.

In the team prizes Kames Capital ended up third with a score that was good enough to win any of the qualifying heats but not good enough to surpass Equator Scotland who ended up as runners up thanks to brilliant scores from Brent Romany, Charles Cameron, Steven Brown and David Petrie with Emma Reid from the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce on hand to present their prize.

The gap was significant to the winners in first place with 4 massive scores from the Glasgow Professional Services champions who completed the double to be crowned Scotland’s national business golf champions 2017.  It was the team from Greater Glasgow Hotels Association led by Jamie Stevens from the Village Hotel Club who collected the trophy from sponsor Gary Blackwood of White Tree Chiropractic.  Jamie, who has recently been cut by 3 shots continued his home course form to lead Anthony Adams, Ameet Juttla and Allan Boyd to back to back victories and they left with the Business Fours Claret Jug.

John McClarey, Founder of Business Fours said “The inaugural Business Fours is a new and exciting event to be added to the Scottish business calendar.  The events have been supported by some of Scotland’s largest institutions and it’s been rewarding to watch see the days played in great spirits with all participants making the most of the opportunity to connect with likeminded professionals.  We’re delighted with our overall charity contribution and would like to sincerely thank all our tournament partners.”
