BESA Scotland golf day goes with a swing | Project Scotland



THE Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) Scotland’s third annual golf day has been hailed a huge success after more than 70 members took part at Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa in Peebles.

Vital Energi’s team of Stephen Traynor, Lee Duckworth and Stephen Martin came out on top in the team competition, with Groupe Atlantic’s Charlie Newell, Billy Ritchie and Paul Welsh named runners-up and Protech Heating’s David Goldie, Gary Steel and John Johnston taking third place.

The event, which was organised by BESA’s head of devolved nations Iain McCaskey and member engagement manager Martina Stocker, raised £362 for Maggie’s Cancer Charity.

Individual winners were Lee Currie from Mitsubishi MEP who hit the longest drive, while the two balls that landed closest to the pin belonged to David Smith from ECG Facilities Services and Rob Vine of Applied Renewable Energy.

BESA immediate past president Rab Fletcher said the golf day was now firmly established as a key part of the association’s calendar as it gave members the chance to network and build relationships.

“Having the chance to meet and chat away from the day-to-day pressures of the business is more valuable than ever,” he said. “Talking to other BESA members proved to me once again how much we have in common and how much to gain from getting to know one another better. I’m already looking forward to next year.”

BESA Scotland Golf Day 2025 will take place on Friday 25 April, 2025. You can book your team early here. Anyone interested in sponsoring should email: or
