Sixteen golf-mad decorators will be living the life of seasoned professionals for a week after securing a place at the illustrious PPG Golf Masters final in Valderrama in September.
PPG Architectural Coatings EMEA Region UK and Ireland, which manufactures leading paint brands Johnstone’s Trade and Leyland Trade, has run the invitational competition for the last six years.
The 16 earned their places at the final at the former Ryder Cup venue in southern Spain after triumphing in a series of regional heats. Hosted by some of the best and most challenging golf clubs across the UK and Ireland, the 12 regional heats attracted more than 700 competitors.
The Scottish heat of the competition went to first prize winner Craig Crickshanks, who was presented with his prize by Stevie Davidson Regional Controller PPG at Ladybank Golf Club in Cupar, Fife (pictured).
The finalists will now all have their sights firmly set on lifting the PPG Golf Masters trophy at the end of September. Playing to win over several days on the world-class course and with luxury five star hospitality to enjoy at the stunning Valderrama resort, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance for decorators to walk in the footsteps of their golfing heroes.
