A MAJOR homebuilder is helping the next generation find their swing by sponsoring a local golf initiative in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
CALA Homes (East) recently funded a summer golf event run by the Stephen Gallacher Foundation – a charity which encourages and helps to develop junior golfers throughout the Lothians and Scottish Borders.
Taking place from the 29th-31st July at Ratho Park Golf Club in Edinburgh, CALA sponsored the Under 15s and Under 13s Championship which saw almost 60 boys and girls play 54 holes over the three days.
Scott Knowles, Foundation Manager with the Stephen Gallacher Foundation, said: “We believe it’s so important to help kids get into golf from a young age – and we simply couldn’t do this without the help of sponsors like CALA.
“They understand our ethos of nurturing young talent and giving all children an opportunity to try out the sport and develop their skills.
“With the support around events like these CALA is helping us to give those kids a chance to not only enjoy golf but help them to be the best they can be.”
The Foundation was established in 2012 by Scottish professional golfer Stephen Gallacher. It holds a series of tournaments throughout the year for 4-18 year olds and supports local golf clubs with time and equipment to help develop junior membership.
Across the country, CALA is committed to making positive contributions to the communities in which it builds.
CALA has an especially longstanding history with the Ratho community, now selling its last available homes in the area following three very successful sites.
Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said: “We firmly believe in supporting and nurturing young talent in local communities and it’s great to know we’re playing a role in encouraging that development in junior golf.
“We’re more than happy to support these types of initiatives that give children an outlet and an opportunity to get into sport from an early age.”
