Kilmarnock FC Golf Day 2024

Kilmarnock Football Club’s annual golf day saw players and management link up with sponsors on the fairways of Trump Turnberry on Monday 18th March 2024.

Guests were welcomed to a spectacular day on the Scottish coast, which provided perfect conditions for a team morale boosting day in the sun during the international break.

Following a warm reception and induction at the clubhouse, the players and coaching staff were paired up with sponsors; captaining the groups that contested over 18 holes in a Texas Scramble matchplay event.
