Key workers are being offered a free round of golf in Kilbirnie as a thanks for their heroic efforts.

Michael Lochrie, of Kilbirnie Place Golf Club, said the members wanted to show their appreciation for key workers and the NHS by offering a round of golf on them absolutely free of charge.

He said: “We recognise the enormous strain and pressures that the lockdown restrictions have had on families, especially those with loved ones in the NHS and key working roles.

“As such we will be hosting a thank you week where they can book a round for free and enjoy some golf with us.

“All you need to do is follow our social media accounts on both Instagram and Facebook.

“Once the restrictions around golf have been lifted, we will announce the week of this offer and how to claim your free round.

“Once again everyone at Kilbirnie Place Golf Club would like to extend their thanks to all those involved in key working and the NHS.”
