80 players join Fife Chamber for a round of golf in the sunshine at the Chamber’s Golf Day Challenge

15th June 2023

Fife Chamber welcomed 80 players to their annual golf day, held on Member Fairmont St Andrews’ Torrance course this year.

The day was sponsored by the Purvis Group. There was further support from the Fairmont which sponsored the post-golf lunch and a generous donation of 80 sleeves of golf balls as part of the golf day gifts from St Andrews Links Trust.

The refreshments cart was funded and delivered by the team from Developing Young Workforce which kept the teams suitably hydrated and energised on a beautiful sunny day.
