A huge congratulations to GS Group’s Chris Watson, after completing his 100 Hole Golf Challenge to fundraise for Seamab!
Seamab cares for and educates some of the most vulnerable children from across Scotland. For children that come to Seamab it can feel like the world has given up on them. Together we can help them belong in a world that cares. The architects have worked closely with the children and staff at Seamab to make sure that the new building will meet all of their needs and expectations. They hope to break ground on the project at the end of the summer 2023 and move into the new building in 2025.
Chris undertook the gruelling challenge of 100 holes in one day with the support of Craigie Hill Golf Club in Perth. Chris teed-off bright and early at Craigie Hill Golf Course for his 100-Holes in One Day charity golf challenge. He had the course to himself for the first few rounds (except for some startled deer he interrupted during their breakfast).
By lunch time, he had racked up an impressive 64 holes and despite the rain he was in great spirits and ahead of schedule! The rain seemed to have been in his favour, as it not only kept him cool, but discouraged the fair-weather golfers from coming out allowing him to keep a steady pace round and round the course.
Having played in his club championship the last few days, and making it all the way to the finals, you would have been mistaken to think that his game would have taken a hit. With over 11 rounds under his cap in the last week, he was elated by matching his PB of 76 (which is just 9 over par) on his home course during his final round!
With the last putt sunk by 6:30pm, Chris had managed to complete his challenge of 100-Holes in One Day. Logging over 62,000 steps, climbing the equivalent of a Munro, and losing 3 balls in the process he racked up an amazing total of £1,349 in Charity Donations for Seamab’s new school project.
