Drive for Doddie

Throughout the weekend, MTX will be raising money for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, a charity close to the founder, Nicole Scott-McKie’s heart, which raises funds to help research into MND, as well as providing grants to improve the lives of those affected by the disease.

MTX founder, Nicole Scott-McKie, said: “We are delighted to launch our second tournament for 2021, in addition to our women-only event taking place in September.

“The Doddie Drive is set to be a memorable event, playing on two fantastic courses here in St Andrews.

“We already have four further tournaments planned for 2022, all of which have a charity element. We hope that, through our tournaments, we will raise significant funds to support the vital work of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, both for medical research, as well as supporting those affected by the cruel disease.

“One of the founding principles of MTX Golf is to encourage more women to play golf and I hope, by making this event a 50:50 female: male split, this ensures women will be well represented. We look forward to welcoming pairs be it couples, father/daughters, business associates etc, to what promises to be a unique and entertaining weekend.”

For those who want to stay and play, MTX is also holding The Fifer Cup, a six-day event which includes five nights at the iconic Old Course Hotel.

Taking place in September 2021, this tournament is for amateur, female golfers and includes a formal awards dinner where funds will also be raised for the Foundation.
