Ayrshire Hospice fundraising manager Louis Jardine commented: “To once again achieve such a fantastic amount, especially in the current difficult economic conditions, is really quite outstanding.
“The Elite Ayrshire Business Circle is an organisation that is going from strength to strength, and I would like to thank all their members who participated so enthusiastically in the Golf Day again this year.
“And special thanks to everyone at the Clydesdale Bank for their support, particularly event organiser David Jellema, without whose hard work the Golf Day would not have been the success it was.
“All the money raised will go straight to directly helping the Ayrshire Hospice to continue to provide care and service to the terminally ill within our community.”
Elite Ayrshire Business Circle managing director Murdoch MacDonald said: “Our members are unanimous in their support for the work that the Ayrshire Hospice does in our community, and we look forward to holding another successful event on their behalf next year.”
