On the 19th and 20th of October we hosted the Sprint to St Andrews Final. The tournament was an inaugural event which saw 30 qualifiers from the Tartan tour compete over 36 holes for a prize fund of £10,000. The event was won by Scottish PGA Champion Chris Doak after a play off. With only 2 of the 30 players finishing under par it was a good test for the players.
We owe a huge thanks to Ian Butcher and Stuart Mackie from Elmwood College for providing some NC and HNC students as volunteers who helped us prepare for the tournament (Ian even raked some bunkers himself).
Day 1 went without any problems but day 2 was very cold and we had our first real frost of the year which only really affected us as we were unable mow anything and were only able to rake bunkers. Fortunately the start times did not need to be delayed as the tournament did not start till 10am.
