Swanston Golf office has E-mailed me to say a few SGF parents have called the Club asking if their kids can play from this Friday, when the Templar Course will re-open. We have spoken to Swanston and they have agreed that SGF kids can play from Friday 5th of June but MUST call the Shop to book a time and only 2 players for each tee time. To book a t time call The Shop number on 0131 445 2239 option1 - ask them to call between 9.30am and 4.00pm.
Well it looks like the courses will be opening again within the week, fingers crossed. We will be looking to hold some events in the near future and will keep you updated regards this. For now though and for a bit of fun we have decided to hold 3 Virtual Events, please see the events section, over the coming weeks finishing on the week of the "Open". These are for fun but also any monies raised will go towards our SGF Junior Coaching and Mentoring Programme for 2020/21. At the end of each event there will be a prize draw, with the winner to play 9 holes and have lunch with Stephen Gallacher at Kingsfield GC, the dates for this event will be advised once we know all the winners. This is a fantastic prize with a chance to play with a European Tour Winner and Ryder Cup Player. For each event the entry fee will be £5, its not restricted to members of the Foundation and multiple entries can be made. As anyone can enter this, please feel free to share with all your friends and colleagues, the more the merrier
