A GOLF club on the outskirts of Troon has announced a partnership with one of Scotland’s biggest football clubs.

The partnership will begin with a number of the club’s legendary former players coming to the golf course for an annual event next month.

Dundonald Links announced the partnership with Rangers FC on September 16.

This will kick off on October 10, when the Scottish Premiership giants host the ‘Rangers Annual Golf Day’ in North Ayrshire which will feature “a number of Gers heroes”.

The partnership will also see Dundonald Links branding at Ibrox during matchdays as well as a number of other key events.

It's another big moment for the golf club which, this year, has already hosted the Scottish Women's Open - having held the men's version of the event in 2017.

Ian Ferguson, general manager of Dundonald Links, said: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Rangers FC, which felt like a very natural one for Dundonald Links given how passionate we both are about our respective sports and creating legacy within them."

While Rangers’ commercial and marketing director, James Bisgrove, added: “At Rangers, we strive to associate ourselves with best in class and liked-minded partners, and with the incredible course and new facilities at Dundonald, we believe the partnership fulfils this ambition.”
