Aberdeen's Kings Links Golf Centre is pitching in with increased backing of the game in the region by supporting the North East District men's team's competition preparation and extending sponsorship of a leading local tournament.

Scotland's largest independent golf centre will provide free practice use of its driving range and short game area as well as clothing for all members of the team.

In addition, Kings Links Golf Centre will continue its sponsorship of the North East District Amateur Open Championship for a second year.

Paul Girvan, director of golf at Kings Links Golf Centre, said "It is a privilege to be able to support the North East District men's team as they prepare for a busy season playing against other Scottish regional teams. It is such a competitive league with with some of the finest amateurs in Scotland so hopefully our financial support will allow our guys to maximise the potential they all undoubtedly have.

Amateur golf is at the heart of what we do at the Kings Links. Across all skill levels, our aim is to help and support everyone in making the most of their ability and to ultimately enjoy the game."

President of the SGU North East District Association Dave Fleming said "Having use of a facility where the team can prepare properly for golf tournaments is a huge boost. The first-class services at Kings Links Golf Centre mean players have everything they could possibly need available to them.

"Last year's North East Open was a huge success with every competition spot filled and one of the strongest fields we have seen in many years. I am confident this year will be just as popular."

The North East District Amateur Open Championship will be held at Portlethen Golf Club on 13th and 14th August.
