A GROUP of golfers from Greenburn has completed an eight-round marathon over two days.

The team had originally set out to play eight 
different courses, but the curse of the Scottish weather restricted the available courses to 
four as many of the 
intended venues were closed.

With the help of Greenburn, Harburn, Bathgate and Shotts Golf Clubs, 
they still managed to 
complete the eight rounds within the intended 
timescales.

Organiser of the event, Graham McLeod, said: “We are all keen golfers and wanted to do something a wee bit different to raise money for our charity 
partner Capability Scotland and also for ClubGolf.

“The Golf Marathon seemed like a good idea, but I wasn’t saying that halfway through when my feet were aching.”

To date the team have raised over £2000 for Capability Scotland as donations continue to be pledged.
