The Aberdeen-based golf centre to give district players free use of its range
Aberdeen’s Kings Links Golf Centre is pitching in with increased backing of the game in the region by supporting the North East District men’s team’s and extending its sponsorship of a leading local tournament.
Scotland’s largest independent golf centre will provide free practice through use of its driving range and short game area as well as clothing for all members of the team.
In addition, Kings Links will continue its sponsorship of the North East District amateur open championship for a second year.
Owned by global shipping and energy services firm Craig Group, Kings Links Golf Centre is a 56-bay, two-tier, floodlit driving range and 3,000sq ft superstore offering golfers everything from the fitting of specialised equipment and swing analysis, to tips on technique and advice on the latest professional brands.
The centre provides a fully-equipped shop with the largest custom fit service in the North-East covering a wide range of leading brands, such as TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, Cleveland, Wilson, Cobra, Nike and Mizuno. The teaching academy offers lessons with qualified PGA professionals, using the latest V1 video analysis software.
Paul Girvan, director of golf at Kings Links Golf Centre, said: “It is a privilege to be able to support our local side as they prepare to play against other Scottish regional teams. Hopefully the backing we provide the North East men’s squad can help them fulfil the potential they all undoubtedly have.
“Amateur golf is at the heart of what we do at the Kings Links Golf Centre. Across all abilities, we aim to support everyone in making the most of their skills and enjoying the game.”
President of the SGU North East District Association Dave Fleming added: “Having use of a facility where the team can prepare properly for golf tournaments is a huge boost. The first-class services at Kings Links Golf Centre mean players have everything they could possibly need available to them.
“Last year’s North East Open was a huge success with every competition spot filled and one of the strongest fields we have seen in many years. I am confident this year will be just as popular.”
The North East District Amateur Open Championship will be held at Portlethen Golf Club on 13 and 14 August.
