Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club has announced details of a special ‘thank you’ offer it is running for frontline healthcare providers.

The Aberdeenshire club has revealed that all NHS staff will be entitled to play its course for just £15 as a token of appreciation for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Visitor rates usually start from £40.

Club captain Jonathan Dobson told the Evening Express: “It has been an uneasy period for the club but we’re proud of our members for showing their support during this challenging time and, as one of the first sports to return, we want to give back.
