Some fine pictures from last months Stuart Hutchison Trophy played on the Templar Course PICS
22 APRIL 2016
The Stephen Gallacher Foundation are at Swanston this Sunday playing for the Stuart Hutchison Trophies – best girl and best boy
The Club has hosted this event for the last 3 years The Trophies were donated by Isobel Hutchison and her family, who have been kindly raising monies towards Stephens Foundation. The trophies are in memory of their golfing son Stuart who tragically died in a road accident in 2009. Stuart played his golf as a youngster at Swanston. Stuart was a great advocate of wanting to help young people learn the wonderful game of golf and it is fitting that we hold this event at his beloved course.
Having helped out at a few Stephen Gallacher Foundation events myself I would encourage our juniors and their parents to get involved with this excellent organisation
