Dougie Donnelly to host Archerfield Golf Dinner »

We are delighted to announce that Dougie Donnelly will host our golf dinner at Archerfield on Friday 18th October.

With over 25 years experience of live broadcasting from major sporting occasions for both BBC and ITV, Dougie is a true professional.  He has covered an impressive list of international sporting events, including seven Olympic Games, two World Cups, four Commonwealth Games, eight US Masters, 18 Open Championships and 30 Scottish Cup Finals – not one of which has featured Clyde, the team he has always supported!

He has also appeared on a variety of topical programmes and quiz shows including ‘The Weakest Link’ ‘Ready Steady Cook’ ‘The Games’ and ‘Banzai’.

Outwith broadcasting Dougie is a popular and highly professional awards and conference host with an ease of presentation to ensure a sharp, smooth corporate occasion. He is also an entertaining and humorous after-dinner speaker, using his broadcasting experiences and the personalities he has encountered to deliver speeches ideal for the corporate audience.

At corporate golf events his anecdotes include his experiences of working with some of the biggest names in world golf – Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington, Tiger Woods and his long time friends Colin Montgomerie, Lee Westwood and Sam Torrance, to name just a few.

Since 2005 Dougie has established a worldwide reputation as a golf commentator on The Golf Channel USA and in South Africa, Australia and the Far East as he travels for up to half the year on the European Tour.

George McNeil and Bobby Frazer will also speak at the event.
