2018 Glencruitten & Dalmally
Oban Rotary recently donated £1,000 and £500 respectively to Glencruitten and Dalmally Golf Clubs in support of their Junior Golf Development Programmes.
Glencruitten Golf Club hosts Oban Rotary's annual Am-Am which is its chief fund raiser and Dalmally Golf Club has been a strong supporter of the Am-Am over many years invariably putting in three teams of four players apiece.
The picture on the left shows Rotary President Iain Mac Intyre handing over the cheque to Neil Amour, GGC's junior golf coach with club members Peter McCuish and Kennie Devine in attendance. The picture on the right shows Dalmally Club captain Maud Marshall receiving their cheque from President Iain with Rotarian and Dalmally Club member Terry Macnair alongside.
In recognition of the tremendous support which the Rotary Club of Oban receives from Glencruitten Golf Club, with regard to putting on it's annual golf charitable Am-Am, Rotary's main fund raiser for supporting local good causes, Rotary President Tommy McQuade is seen here presenting a cheque for £1000 to Golf Club Captain Alan Jamieson as a donation towards Junior Golf Development.
The majority of the golfers on the day are members of Glencruitten Golf Club, who in the interests of charity, are paying for the privilege of playing on their own course and this only serves to underpin the generosity of the town and district at large.
The 2017 Rotary Am-Am raised in excess of £11,000 all of which goes towards assisting local good causes with the highlight in the past year being Oban Rotary's contribution of £4,000 p.a for 3 years i.e. £12,000 in support of local young carers.
