Golfers Tee-Off in Duluth’s Inaugural Scottish Scramble
DULUTH, Minn. — The first ever Scottish Scramble tee’d off in Duluth Monday.
Ridgeview Country Club hosted the charity golf event to raise funds for two local non-profits:
The Duluth Scottish Heritage Association and the Minnesota Masonic Children’s Clinic for Communication Disorders.
The scramble consisted of 18 teams and a few celebrity guests, former Vikings Quarterback Tommy Kramer and Olympic Curler John Shuster were on the greens.
Lead Organizer, Jason Reid said, “so there’s a lot of components that we’ve tried to tie together with this unique relationship. There’s Scottish roots within the Masonic Clinic, too. So it’s been a good time to get a new audience out and experience Scottish culture, as well as the clinic. Just saying hey, we’re here and we’re in this community with you.”
Following 18 holes of golf, a round of Scottish-themed dinner was served to players.
Organizers say this was the first Scottish Scramble, but hopefully not the last.
