Strutt & Parker's Kevin Maley (Partner of the firm) summary of the Charity Event held on the 30th September
The key to the success of an event such as this is preparation. From our initial meeting we felt totally comfortable that we were in safe hands and that Nairn Dunbar was the right venue for us and our clients. Having looked at other venues, we felt based on the warm welcome, professionalism, facilities and the condition of the course that this was the right choice for us. Ultimately the success of the day would be a reflection on us and more importantly Strutt & Parker.
We had regular meetings and discussions in the run up to the event to make sure everything was falling into place and that nothing was left to chance. We wanted to make our golf day a relaxed, memorable and fun day out for everyone whilst raise money for our chosen charity. Robert and his team allowed us to focus on getting the teams together, arrange prizes, etc. whilst he and the team organised the day itself from the choice of food to the nearest the pin competition. This allowed us to focus fully on promoting the event in the knowledge that everything was being taken care of by Robert Kay, Donnie Duggie, Stuart Henderson, George Anderson and the team.
Every single person at the club from catering staff to the golf professional were committed to making the event a success and nothing was a bother such was the desire to make our day go to plan. On the day itself everything fell into place. With the best part of 80-90 people turning up to take part in the event, their every need was catered for from the moment they arrived which allowed all of the Strutt & Parker team to relax and simply enjoy the day.
All of the senior committee team and management staff from the club made themselves available on the day putting up signage, setting up golf swing video analysis and explaining how the day would work. Once everyone had their bacon rolls and coffee it was off to their respective tees to get started. Thankfully we were blessed with a fantastic sunny day, having rained almost the full day before. The course was in outstanding condition and a joy to play. Having played the course previously only once many years ago, the improvements are significant.
As everyone filtered back to the clubhouse after an enjoyable round of golf, food was served. A great selection of hot food and generous servings into the bargain to enjoy whilst talking over all those missed putts and dodgy golf shots. Donnie had arranged a whisky tasting event hosted by Royal Brackla Distillery and this was a great success and proved very popular. This was followed by our prize giving and charity auction and a thanks to all who had taken part.
A very enjoyable, successful day which raised over £6,000 for Strutt & Parker’s chosen charity which wouldn’t was been possible without the commitment and incredible support from all of the team at Nairn Dunbar. Since then we have had countless calls and emails from those who took part thanking us for a wonderful day which is an indication of the effort that everyone at the club made to make the day such a success.

I have now played golf for 30 years and the welcome we had at Nairn Dunbar was superb. The Course was in superb condition and the staff and members could not have been more helpful. I would have to say it was “second to none” – Well done! I have to make a special mention for Stephanie who took my call at 6pm the night before and sorted out an am tee time to keep us dry. Exceptional service.

Hello Mr Kay, In answer to the survey you emailed, I don’t do facebook but am happy to reply. I found the service in the pro shop 1st class. The course was in excellent condition and very enjoyable. Several of the members chatted to me on the way round, I was also allowed to play through 2 groups which isn’t always the case and overall found the club very welcoming. I would certainly recommend the club and course to anyone and would be happy to post a review on the scottish courses site
Thanks Nicol Auld
