Carnoustie Golf Links has relaunched its Community Benefits Awards Programme to broaden its appeal and to reach out to more groups and organisations.

The programme has provided almost £185,000 in funding to community groups and organisations in and around Carnoustie since the company was granted charitable status in 2014.

Wednesday’s relaunch follows a review of the programme which has been running since early 2015.

As a result of the review, the Community Benefits Committee aims to improve awareness of potential funding available following the appointment of Donald Archibald as Community Benefits Administrator and by promoting the availability of funding through local media.

David Cheape, a trustee of Carnoustie Golf Links and Community Benefits convener, said: “Since 2015 we have accepted applications from a broad range of individuals, organisations and community groups and the list of those who have submitted applications is representative of the diverse character of our community.

“The differing nature and value of awards made, amounting to £185,000, is viewed by and large by the community as a significant and important element of the role the Links play within the community since it received charitable status.

“Over the last four years the community benefits programme – in addition to existing value in kind support provided to numerous benefactors in Carnoustie – has established Carnoustie Golf links as a significant contributor of support to the community.

“We anticipate the relaunch of the updated Community Benefits programme will broaden the value of our programme across a wider spectrum within Carnoustie and its surrounding area and hopefully better showcase our efforts and provide a means to achieve greater impact while promoting and supporting the Carnoustie Golf Links brand.”

Applications are welcomed from all community groups and organisations within the electoral ward of Carnoustie and District encompassing Carnoustie, Barry, Easthaven, Monikie, Muirdrum and Newbigging.

Pat Sawers, chairman of Carnoustie Golf Links, added: “With the support of our executive management team we hope to increase the value of funding available each year.

“The majority of funds will be destined for distribution to local groups annually, but we do intend to ring fence a significant sum each year in order to build a sizeable capital fund which will, at some time in the future, be used to support significant town projects.”

Applications are now invited and the application process will remain open until July 31.

Full details are available on the Carnoustie Golf Links website.

All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications at the end of August and a presentation will be made to successful applicants towards the end of September.

From 2020 onwards awards will be made in April and September.
