Annual Golf Competition and Lunch at Royal Troon

The 2017 Annual Golf Competition will be held on Tuesday 2nd May 2017 at Royal Troon Golf Club, which recently hosted the 2016 Open Championship. ASGBI members and delegates have been offered the chance to play the Championship Old Course for £50 per person, which includes a two course lunch. Tee times will be scheduled at 8 minute intervals from 13.30, and players are invited to meet at midday for a pre-match lunch in the Club Dining Room.

As usual, golfers will be playing for the President’s Putter, for best scratch round, and the St Andrew’s Quaich as the main handicap prize.

Numbers are limited so places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Make sure to book early to ensure you don’t miss out!



A special thank you to ASGBI Fellows John McGregor, Bob Diamant, Chris Morran and Paul Rogers for making this unique opportunity available to our delegates!

Gala Dinner at the Glasgow City Chambers

This year, the main social event will be a Gala Dinner to be held at the Glasgow City Chambers. Please join us for an evening of fine dining and local entertainment. The dress code is black tie optional, and tickets cost £45 for four courses, tea/coffee and half a bottle of wine per person, as well as local entertainment!

A civic drinks reception will commence at 19.15, with dinner served at 20.00 and carriages at 23.00.



ASGBI is grateful to the Lord Provost and Glasgow City Council for providing a civic reception at this event.

Please note that buying tickets in advance is essential, and there will not be any available on the day. This is because final numbers have to be communicated to the venue in advance of the event.
