IN RECOGNITION of the tremendous support which the Rotary Club of Oban receives from Glencruitten Golf Club in regard to putting on its annual golf haritable Am-Am, which is Rotary’s main fund raiser for supporting local good causes, Rotary president Tommy McQuade is seen here presenting a cheque for £1,000 to golf club captain Alan Jamieson as a donation towards junior golf development at the club.

The majority of the golfers on the day are members of Glencruitten Golf Club, who in the interests of charity, are paying for the privilege of playing on their own course and this only serves to underpin the generosity of the town and district at large.

The 2017 Rotary Am-Am raised in excess of £11,000 all of which goes towards assisting local good causes with the highlight in the past year being Oban Rotary’s contribution of £4,000 per annum for three years i.e. £12,000 in support of local young carers.
