With the resignation at last years AGM of the previous Corporate Convener, Colin Grant, who stood down after many years of service to McDonald GC, this position sadly went unfilled for the 2019 season despite several potential conveners being approached, and all Corporate activity was conducted by the Clubs Officers.
As the Corporate activities were being undertaken along with the Officers other duties, they were mainly confined to the renewal of existing Corporate Packages when they fell due and such Corporate work as was necessary to support the 2019 Pro-Am.
James Jamieson continued as our main Pro-Am sponsor for 2019 and has recently confirmed his support for 2020.
The following Groups renewed their Corporate packages during 2019;
John Willox Kitchen Design
Remember some corporate members are on multi-year packages and may not have needed to renew last year.
Disappointingly, we lost Sulzer Wood as a Corporate Member due to staff changes and an internal review of their non-core activities. They have been long term Corporate members and we are very sorry to lose them. Nevertheless, they continue to utilise McDonald Golf Club for their staff Xmas Party, and we are grateful for the significant income that this event generates for the Club.
Early in 2020, an existing Club Council member, John Wilson, who had assisted with Corporate matters as part of the Pro-Am organising team, agreed to take on the combined role of Corporate and Pro-Am Convener from the 2020 AGM onwards.
