GOLFERS are being encouraged to sign up for the annual Hansel Golf Spectacular.

Taking place at Kilmarnock (Barassie) Golf Course in Troon on Thursday. May 3, those who take part will be able to join the four ball Stableford Event, which starts at 9am.

A trophy will be awarded to the winning team and there will be Stableford Prize for the best Individual Score over 18 holes and there will also be prizes for the Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin at the Par 3s - a charity auction will then round off the day.

Sheila McLean, Hansel Fundraising Manager, said: “It is hard to imagine a lovely day on the golf course after such a terrible winter, but the sunshine will come again and there can be fewer nicer ways to celebrate the return of the good weather than on the greens with friends.

“It is always such a great competition and the standard of play is usually very high. 

“It is a fun way to entertain clients or catch up with old friends.”
