Top north golf club had to cut wages

Press Releasein Golf

A world-class Highland golf club which attracts a rich and famous clientele from all over claimed yesterday that it had to cut the wages and hours of 10 greenkeepers during the winter because of financial difficulties.

The 133-year-old Royal Dornoch Golf Club was trying to avoid the need to make redundancies to counter a drop in income over the winter months, the club's financial convener, Michael Thomas, told an Inverness employment tribunal yesterday.

But the group of greenkeepers, who help keep the club ranked in the world top 15 each year, are each pursuing a legal case against the company, accusing them of making unlawful deductions from their wages, and evidence in one of the cases was heard yesterday.
