Golf: £60k refurb completed at Rothesay clubhouse

An Awards for All lottery grant has helped towards the completion of a £60,000 refurbishment project at Rothesay Golf Club.

The lottery grant of £9,950 was used to carry out much-needed improvement work on the ladies’, gents’ and visitors’ bathrooms at the clubhouse, while a donation from club member Joe Torrance also helped towards teh cost of the work.

In addition a £24,000 interest-free loan from the Energy Saving Trust has been used to install a new wood burner in the clubhouse along with a new boiler and heating system.

Mr Torrance said: “The work really needed done and the club didn’t have all the necessary funds, so I was happy to make a contribution to help out.”
