Shelagh Bryce, Director of Customer Services for sponsors Belhaven, said:

“We’d like to thank all the clubs for taking part in this year’s championship, which has become one of Scotland’s most popular events since we first launched it back in 2006.
“Golf clubs have been a big part of the Belhaven Best success story and this event allows us to give something back to the hard working officials at clubs who do so much work at the grass roots of the game.”
