Thurso Golf Club's greenkeeper Frazer Sparling has received a presentation marking his 20 years at the club, having begun his apprenticeship in 2001.

The committee thought it appropriate to recognise Frazer's dedication over the past two decades. He received a bottle of locally produced Wolfburn whisky along with a sum of money and a card.

Club captain Alan Coghill said: "The comments on the condition of the course from both members and visitors are a testament to the experience gained and hard work put in by Frazer and his team of volunteers."

Alan added: "Even through the restrictions of the pandemic, the club has seen a surge in interest in golf at Thurso with a significant increase in membership. This includes our junior section, which has now over 60 members.

"We have also seen an increase in visitors to the area playing the course."
