In Recognition of...
As principle host Club Kilmarnock Barassie had the pleasure of welcoming a variety of guests, including representatives from Dundonald Links and Irvine Bogside, but the main reason for the event was to recognise the contribution of the many volunteers who give their time to making the Championship a success.
Championship Director, Keith Andrews, spoke, thanking everyone for their input. Club Captain, David Miller, replied on behalf of the volunteers and everyone involved with the organisation of the Championship singling out the unsung heroes behind the scenes including Club professional, Gregor Howie, caterer, Ruby Rowan and Club Steward, Glen Ranson.
Special mention was given to Brian Findlayson, the Course Manager, and his team without whom the Championship would not have been possible. The course was is superb condition, which was recognised by everyone concerned, not least the players, who after all had to master the challenges of the set-up.
