On Friday the 20th of April Buchanan Castle hosted a Testimonial Pro-Am event for their resident Professional Keith Baxter who celebrated 25 years working at Buchanan Castle.
The event was a great success with 18 teams playing after a shotgun start. The winning team was led by Neil Martin. The golf was followed by an excellent carvery, a raffle and an auction. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and it was good to see the clubhouse so busy.
Keith started working at Buchanan on Monday the 18th of January, 1993. He remembers that on his first week the course was closed because the Endrick had burst it’s banks and he thought “what have I done!” He said recently that it has been great to see the changes in the facilities over the years with the upgrading of the clubhouse, the development of the driving range and the Academy Course. He thinks that with the quality of the course and what is on offer at Buchanan Castle, we have one of the best golf facilities around.
Keith was presented with his cheque by Cathy Alexander who assisted Professional Jason McCreadie in the organisation of the day.
