Dumbarnie Golf Links, in collaboration with its landlord, Balcarres Estate, have recently created a foundation that enables them to support local charities and organisations.

Over the past few weeks the course and landlord have been considering which worthy groups to give financial backing to in the first round of donations.

These have now been presented and, on Friday, the first two of six chosen local charities were presented with cheques to spend on their organisation and the work they do.
