Carly Booth Visits Glenalmond’s New Golf Hub

A decade after she left Glenalmond College, professional golfer Carly Booth returned to her old school this week to meet staff and pupils and hear about the school’s exciting future plans for golf. Carly, who won the Czech Ladies Open last year, spent time with pupils on the school’s stunning, snow-covered golf course before heading inside to view the brand new state-of-the-art golf hub. She said she was delighted to return to the Perthshire school, which will be showcasing its new golf facility to visitors at an Open Day on March 14th. The golf hub was developed as part of an ambitious, on-going programme of investment by Glenalmond, to ensure it continues to grow its reputation as a centre of excellence for learning and the exceptional range of activities, including golf, offered in its 300 acre campus.

Staff at Glenalmond College in Perthshire have been getting behind an initiative to help wildlife affected by the Australian bushfires and creating pouches for joeys, wallabies and small marsupials, orphaned as a result of the devastating fires.

The pouches have now been shipped to Warriewood in New South Wales who will distribute them to animal aid centres in need.
