First to tee off was Ian McDonald of Adam & Co., partners of the Chamber Golf Challenge, followed closely by Chamber President and Aberdeen Football Club Vice-Chairman, George Yule. The exclusive event was hailed a great success with Donald Trump himself welcoming the teams at breakfast. Mr Trump thrilled participants with his on-course presence, ensuring the course lived up to expectations.
However, the surprise of the day was the first hole in one for the course, by Neale Stewart, Finance Director at Bibby Offshore who struck it lucky at the 16th hole. Mr Stewart, with a handicap of 7 said, "it was my first ever hole in one. I ended up having to buy a round of drinks at the clubhouse but got off lightly as a lot of guests were driving."
The general consensus was that the course was challenging but was indeed, world class.
