Forres Golf Course, a community owned facility as part of Forres Common Good, is managed and operated entirely by the golfers. In times when member numbers are decreasing it has become increasingly difficult to find the funding for essential preventative maintenance work. The grant from BBCF contributed 50% towards the cost of the shed refurbishment. The shed is over 50 years old and without this work being carried out it was under threat of losing its structural integrity. The re-painting work, apart from greatly improving the appearance of the building will extend its life for an indefinite period.
