Arbroath Annual Golf Day 2019
On Friday we held our 2019 Arbroath FC Annual Golf Day at the Arbroath Artisan Golf Club, and Arbroath Golf Links – Arbroath Golf Links
We were treated to a beautiful sunny day and after a few bacon rolls and a quick drink to settle the nerves the teams headed out onto the course for the 1pm start for our Texas Scramble.
Arbroath Manager Dick Campbell and Assistant Manager Ian Campbell were there alongside Arbroath player Gavin Swankie and Hall of Fame Inductee John Fletcher whilst Arbroath Directors Robert Sim, Douglas Bain and Brian Cargill all made their way out onto the course.
There was some early shouts of “fore” over the course with also some Augusta style cheering as the teams made progress round the course.
Arbroath Chairman Mike Caird and Vice Chairman Ewen West were joined by Operations and Kit Manager Louise Walker as they provided the players with some refreshments along the way.
As the afternoon came to an end we all headed back to the club house for a meal before the scorecards were checked and verified.
Arbroath Manager Dick Campbell addressed the attendees as he discussed the season ahead and also thanked everyone involved for another great day which provided the club with more funds for the upcoming season.
Dick also presented our winners and losers;
Winners – Gavin Swankie, Craig Reynolds, Danny Brown, Findlay Stevens

Third Place – Dick Campbell, Ian Campbell, Chris Campbell, Drew Mackie
