FIFE golfers enjoyed a night to savour at the recent 2012 Annodata Scottish Golf Awards.

Golfers from the Kingdom walked off with three awards, with Fife Golfing Association claiming the Team of the Year prize after a memorable season.

James White (Lundin) and Louise Kenney (Pitreavie) also claimed prizes after winning the respective Men’s and Ladies’ Order of Merits in 2011.

Bill Dickson, Fife team manager, collected the Team of the Year prize on stage from former Old Firm footballers Billy Dodds and Bobby Petta.

White was presented with his gong from BBC Sportscene presenter Rob MacLean, while primary school teacher Kenney was handed her award from Bunkered magazine editor, Bryce Ritchie.

A celebration of Scottish golf’s achievements over the past 12 months, the prestigious event at the Crowne Plaza – hosted by the Scottish Golf Union and the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association - saw all proceeds going towards the development of young golfers in Scotland.

A unique collection of golf’s most-sought after trophies greeted guests on their arrival - the Claret Jug, the Walker Cup, the Solheim Cup and, of course, the Ryder Cup.
