A Scottish golf club is showing its appreciation for local NHS workers who have worked bravely through the Covid-19 crisis by offering ten free memberships.

The offer from Callander Golf Club is on a first-come, first-served basis and applicants must live within the FK postcode area.

The membership would normally cost over £300 and, if the offer is oversubscribed, players who miss out will be able to join the Stirlingshire club at a reduced rate of £150.

“We all owe so much to the NHS in recent months," said club captain Bob Harvey. "We hope that this small thank you from Callander Golf Club will help some of those heroic workers to relax a little.

"Our course is regarded as one of the most scenic in Scotland, and we hope the fresh air and beautiful views will be a salve for the soul of weary workers.

“Whether they are brand new to golf or a competitive low handicap player, we look forward to welcoming our NHS heroes to our club.”

Callander Golf Club was founded in 1890 and produced one of the country's best left-handers in former Scottish Boys' champion Ben Collier until Bob MacIntyre came on to the scene in recent years.
