The XOS Scottish Golf Dinner 2011 will take place on the new date of Friday 18 February at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow, with BBC Sport’s Andrew Cotter taking over the reins as event host and a number of Scottish Golf’s leading names lined up to attend.

Hamish Grey, Chief Executive of the Scottish Golf Union, welcomed the new partnership: “We are delighted to bring in XOS as our new sponsor, not only for their sponsorship of the Scottish Golf Dinner but as a company who can provide an excellent service to our member clubs. They have a proven track record in customer service and cost savings and we look forward to working with them.”
“The XOS Scottish Golf Dinner will be one of the highlights of the golfing calendar and we have made a number of changes to the event for next year which I’m sure will attract an even wider audience of golfers to attend. It will be a fantastic celebration of Scottish Golf and will raise funds for the development of junior golf in Scotland,” he added.
Managing Director of XOS, Lindsay Wallace, commented: “As an ambitious Scottish company we are very proud to be associated with the SGU and look forward to celebrating the achievements of Scottish golfers at next year’s dinner. XOS already has a number of golf clubs as clients and we are delighted to be putting something back into the game with this sponsorship.”
“We offer a fantastic service to golf clubs with our range of office solutions and our Account Managers will also work with clubs on local sponsorship activity.” he added.
