The Swanston Golf Academy & Club Fitting Studio

The Swanston Golf Academy and Club Fitting Studio held an Open Day on Sunday 23rd September and as part of the celebrations, golfers entered the FREE 9 Hole Par 3 Open Competition, making them in with a chance to win lots of prizes, including a brand new Audi for a Hole in One at the 6th, kindly sponsored by local business, Currency King of Buckstone, Edinburgh!  Sponsors of the holes also included Simpson & Marwick Property and Legal Services, Argyll Consulting, Allingham & Co and more, with prizes from GolfClubs4Cash.

The event was open to all Juniors, Ladies and Gentlemen with a handicap of 36 or less – and they didn’t need to be a member at Swanston to enter.  Handicaps deducted were one half of current handicap and one round of 9 should took approximately 70 minutes.

The day also gave visitors the opportunity to speak to Scott Gourlay in person and meet his team, Scott Fraser and Gregor Thomas, to find out what their amazing technology and techniques can do for you to maximise your game.  Not only that, visitors were able to consult our teaching professionals, Peter Arnott and Ian Butcher about what they can do to improve your technique and mental approach to the game – completely free of charge on the day!

It was a fantastic day, with 112 players of all ages taking part in the Open competition, the skies were blue with a wee bit of a breeze.
