What is the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund?
The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund was established following the tragic death of Captain David Seath, who died running the London Marathon in support of the charity Help for Heroes. Working in partnership with Help for Heroes, the funds are used to provide financial grants to wounded, injured and sick personnel and veterans as a means to rebuild their lives following physical and emotional trauma. The funds are distributed through Help for Heroes' Quick Reaction Fund (QRF), which means the funds can reach beneficiaries within 72 hours. So far, over 150 financial grants have been provided through the QRF, where beneficiaries have used the funds to purchase specialist sports and rehabilitation equipment, facilitate essential home and car adaptations, fund respite breaks and initiate vocational and employment opportunities.
Prepare for Golf Day Success!
Q. How do I prepare for golf day glory?
A. A hearty breakfast & a golf clinic with a team of PGA professionals.
We look forward to welcoming our guests at the Fairmont Clubhouse, where a hearty breakfast will be waiting after completing registration. An official welcome will be provided by our host, David Tanner of Sky Sports, and teams will then make their way to the range to begin a clinic with Fairmont’s PGA golf professionals.
Q. Does a hearty breakfast and golf clinic ensure I will hit the ball straight?
A. We think so… Well maybe….
In a tribute to Captain Seath, who served in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, a round from a 105mm will be fired to start our teams off for 18 holes of texas scramble on the highly renowned Kittocks Course. The artillery theme will continue on the course through a longest drive target competition and co-ordinates will be provided for two closest the pin challenges.
Q. Will I be able to retrieve the ball I used to hit a 6 iron into the North Sea… when it was an 8 iron all day long?
A. No, absolutely not!
As you contemplate the shots you left out on the course and the injustice of pot-hole bunkers, we can offer the consolation of a delicious two course meal in the Fairmont clubhouse lounge which provides dramatic, panoramic views of the East coast of Fife. Our winners on the day will be announced and presented with their prizes. David Tanner will provide an engaging interview with sporting celebrities followed by an auction of sporting memorabilia to complete the evening.
