In addition, companies will raise funds for this year’s chosen charity – Scottish Network for Arthritis in Children (SNAC) as chosen by the 2016 league winners, Santander.

DF Communications, an award-winning mobile phone and communications specialist to small, medium and large businesses, is the organiser of the league for a sixth consecutive year.

Craig Forsyth, sales director at Aberdeen-based DF Communications, said: “We’re now taking entries and hope to have around 36 teams in this year’s event. The league is a great way to build new contacts and play a game of golf at the same time.”

This year all teams are expected to take part in a launch event at one course, with the rest of the fixtures being played at ‘home’ courses throughout the summer. The Business Golf League is played in a fourball format with teams split into groups. The winners and runners-up from each division then qualify for the finals day held at a course yet to be announced.

Teams of between two and four named players can enter the league at a cost of £219 plus VAT. Last year’s tournament was won by Stuart Thom and Roy Strachan, of Santander Corporate and Commercial, at the Castle Course at St Andrews.

The event raised £800 for MND Scotland which supports those affected by motor neurone disease.
