Welcome to the Scotland Golf Marathon 2005 website. Starting on Jan 3rd at Powfoot, Dumfrieshire, Bernard Wood is commencing an attempt at playing 377, 18-hole golf courses in Scotland within a year. He is doing this in an attempt to raise £100,000 for the Kirsty Appeal which aims to secure the future of the Francis House Children's Hospice. Francis House, who under the umbrella of Rainbow Family Trust, are a charitable organisation that offers the families of terminally ill children a respite from their role as carers and gives the children a loving home from home. On this site you can find information about the event, the charity and how to make a donation to the charity. You can view Bernards itinerary for his golf. Given the nature of the event and weather conditions, this will remain a slightly flexible plan. Once the event is underway, please check back regularly to keep a track of Bernards progress and the amount of money raised. Finally, this event wouldn’t have been possible without the magnificent support from many people and organisations. We have dedicated a Thanks section of the site to gratefully acknowledge these people and organisations.
