DN Texas Scramble Golf Day Fundraiser 2022
31st August 2022

A big thank you to all who took part in our inaugural DN Dance Golf Fundraiser event on Sunday 26th of September. It was a great turnout with 53 players across 14 teams, and lots of prizes to be won. We’re delighted to have raised a total of £1054.45 which will go towards additional training and development opportunities for our dance competition team.

Team prizes

Our two main prizes are the team awards, for “lowest team net score” and for “most team birdies (gross score)”. The winning prize for the team with the lowest team net score is a 4-ball voucher to the prestigious Archerfield Links Golf Club in East Lothian, and for the team with the most team birdies (gross score) is a 4-ball voucher a the fabulous Pitfirrane Golf Culb in Dunfermline.

Lowest Team Net Score

Congratulations to Andrew, John, Josh & Lindsay from team “Purple Rain Men” with a superb result of Net 55.  Two other teams finished with Net 56 and missed out on competing for the prize by one stroke. One of those teams failed to take advantage of the bonus handicap point available to teams in which all players wore two of the three DN Brand colours (Pink, Purple & Grey), showing once again that golf is a game of fine margins and you have to take your chances.

Results in order of lowest to highest net score were as follows:

  1. Purple Rain Men – (Net 55)
  2. Woodfield Weasels – (Net 56)
  3. Avoca – (Net 56)

  5. Golfers United – (Net 58)
  6. Ellwood Ball Washers – (Net 59)
