Linlithgow Rugby Club staged a golf day at Kingsfield Golf Centre last week to raise funds for the club’s planned indoor training facility.

A total of 15 teams took part in the golf competition, which was won by Ian Taylor, Dave Smith, Ross Cain and Alistair Rees. Mark Irvine, Andy Corr, Paul Porteous and Kenny Livingstone were runners-up with David Bennie, Patrick Bennie, Tom McClure and Frank McAllan placed third.

In the other competitions, David Watt won the longest putt with a monster putt the length of the Ochils putting green to come within 12 inches of the hole. Three golfers managed to “hit the gong”, with Ally Lindsay coming out of the hat to win the prize.

The event raised £4000 towards funds for the new training facility to be built at Mains Park.

The event’s main sponsor was Alan Steel Asset Management with Kingsfield Golf Centre also contributing support in kind.

Linlithgow RFC president, Craig Young, said, “I would like to thank our sponsor, Alan Steel, and Rob Arkley for their support in helping to stage this event, which is the first of our larger activities to raise funds for the indoor training facility.

“I am also grateful to all the staff at Kingsfield for their superb help on the day and to all those who came along for the fun and to part with their money. In particular I should like to thank Nick Chadwick, Andy Corr, Gerry Keating and Mark Wells for their hard work in organising the whole day and making sure it went so well.”
