Our Scottish Charity Golf Day certainly wasn’t ‘below par’. At the legendary Gleneagles Golf Course, 52 players from the hair industry took to the PGA Centenary Course, home of the 2014 Ryder Cup. We’re so grateful for the huge turnout. Stylists, distributors and brands were brought together to raise over £8,000 for helping hairdressers in need.
The competitive golfing began with a shotgun start at 10am after a briefing with event organiser & our charity committee member, Peter Belcher. Followed by dinner and awards in the Clubhouse to end the day. Massive congratulations to all the winners as followed:
Individual Winner – Gary Barker of UNITE.
Team Winners – UNITE.
Longest Drive – Scott McKauch.

Raffle – 16 prizes including a silent auction on Gleneagles FourBall – won by Brian Thompson of Lesley Hair in Inverness.

2 tickets to BHBA – Rainbow Rooms.
Wella’s Golf at the Belfry – Wayne Blackburn & John O’Rouke.
“It was a tremendous day and the PGA course was magnificent with 52 golfers were lead out on to the PGA course by the Gleneagles Team. Guests from around the UK with The Gallery flying up from Kent, a team from Northern Ireland and UNITE coming from USAm which raised the stakes and it was lovely to see so many making a special effort to be there. When the golf was over, guests enjoyed a 3course meal & charity auction in the event.” Peter Belcher
A few lovely words were sent in by fellow golfer on the day and orgnaiser of our Southern Golf Day, Lorenzo Colangelo, of The Gallery who summed up the day: “I just want to say what an incredible couple of days we had at Gleneagles. Peter and Liz were absolutely amazing. Not just for the organisation, but they set a great mood for a fun charity day at an incredible venue that had everyone’s focus on the charity. It ran incredibly smoothly. The team at Gleneagles managed the event so brilliantly, it was a joy to be a part of. I can’t thank Peter enough for taking this on. To see the day make some good cash for the charity is a massive bonus. I think everyone left the day happy and better aware of the great charity we are part of.”
