Vital Energi takes top honours at BESA Scotland golf day


The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) Scotland third annual Golf Day was hailed a huge success with more than 70 members taking part.

Competition was fierce but Vital Energi’s crack team of Stephen Traynor, Lee Duckworth and Stephen Martin came out on top in the team competition with Groupe Atlantic’s Charlie Newell, Billy Ritchie and Paul Welsh in second and Protech Heating’s David Goldie, Gary Steel and John Johnston taking third place.GOLF Day BESA Ball

The event at the luxurious Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa in Peebles, which was organised by the Association’s head of devolved nations Iain McCaskey and member engagement manager Martina Stocker, also raised an impressive £362 for Maggies Cancer Charity.

Individual winners were Lee Currie from Mitsubishi MEP who hit the longest drive, and the two balls that landed closest to the pin belonged to David Smith from ECG Facilities Services and Rob Vine of Applied Renewable Energy. Photos of all the action can be viewed here.

BESA immediate past president Rab Fletcher said the golf day was now firmly established as a key part of the Association’s calendar as it gave members the chance to network and build relationships.

“Having the chance to meet and chat away from the day-to-day pressures of the business is more valuable than ever” he said. “Talking to other BESA members proved to me once again how much we have in common and how much to gain from getting to know one another better.

“I’m already looking forward to next year.”

Plans are already well advanced for BESA Scotland Golf Day 2025 which will take place on Friday 25 April. You can book your team early here. Also, anyone interested in sponsoring should email: or

Feedback from this year’s event has been very positive but BESA would also like attendees to complete a brief survey to help fine tune future events.

The next BESA Scotland members’ meeting is scheduled for Thursday 9 May at 10am and will be hosted by Ductform HFE, 17 Faraday Road, Glenrothes KY6 2RU. Register your attendance here.
