It is in memory of past lady captain Maggie Pearson who passed away in 2015 from breast cancer. Team places for the Mixed Texas Scramble are £50 per team.

Organiser Anne Main said: “We are delighted once again to support Maggie’s in memory of Maggie.

“Many of us have found Maggie’s Fife an invaluable support centre. We hope everyone who plays will dig deep to support this great charity.”

Tu said: “We are so grateful to the club and the committee for organising this fabulous event.

“It is a lovely way to pay tribute to Maggie and her passion for golf.

“Funds raised will help support the growing need for Maggie’s Fife. More people have accessed our centre meaning we can be there for them hen they are dealing with challenges that cancer often brings.”
