From the moment you arrive for our Captain David Seath Memorial Fund Charity Golf Day with your work colleagues, friends or family, we promise everyone a fantastic experience at the home of golf.
The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund was established following the tragic death of Captain David Seath, who died running the London Marathon in support of the charity Help for Heroes. Working in partnership with Help for Heroes, the funds are used to provide financial grants to wounded, injured and sick personnel and veterans as a means to rebuild their lives following physical and emotional trauma. The funds are distributed through Help for Heroes' Quick Reaction Fund (QRF), which means the funds can reach beneficiaries within 72 hours. So far, over 150 financial grants have been provided through the QRF, where beneficiaries have used the funds to purchase specialist sports and rehabilitation equipment, facilitate essential home and car adaptations, fund respite breaks and initiate vocational and employment opportunities.
We look forward to welcoming our guests at the Fairmont Clubhouse, where a hearty breakfast is waiting after completing registration. An official welcome is provided by our host, David Tanner of Sky Sports, and teams then make their way to the range to begin a clinic with Fairmont’s PGA golf professionals.
In a tribute to Captain Seath, who served in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, a round from a 105mm is fired to start our teams off for 18 holes of texas scramble on the highly renowned Kittocks Course. The artillery theme continues on the course through a longest drive target competition and co-ordinates are provided for two closest the pin challenges.
As you contemplate the shots you left out on the course and the injustice of pot-hole bunkers, we can offer the consolation of a delicious two course meal in the Fairmont clubhouse lounge which provides dramatic, panoramic views of the East coast of Fife. Our winners on the day are announced and presented with their prizes. David Tanner provides an engaging interview with sporting celebrities followed by an auction of sporting memorabilia to complete the evening.
