Auchterarder Golf Club Legacy Programme
Leave a lasting gift in your Will and help future generations of golfers at your Club.
Why your gift is important
As many golf clubs struggle to make ends meet, we want to ensure that Auchterarder Golf Club has the necessary funds to provide a fantastic golf course and facilities for future generations to come.
You can help the Club do this by leaving a gift in your Will. This gift can be used at your discretion to help us maintain and enhance our Club facilities to ensure that Auchterarder Golf Club retains its status as one of the best inland courses in Scotland.
How to do this
Leaving a legacy gift is an important decision, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. The Club can provide information and advice to make the process as easy as possible.
Here are the basics:
- State in your Will that you would like to leave a gift to us. We recommend using a solicitor or professional will-writer to make sure your Will is legal and valid.
- Include our full name, to make sure the money goes to the right place: Auchterarder Golf Club, Orchil Road Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland PH3 1LS
- If you would like your gift to go towards a specific project at the Club, you can add this to your Will. If you want to find out more, contact the Managing Secretary.
For more information
Contact the Managing Secretary. All inquiries will be dealt with in strict confidence.
What type of gift is best?
A residuary gift - what is left of the estate after all other legacies, tax debts and costs have been paid - is a popular option because it takes care of others first and stays proportional to the value of your estate
by keeping pace with inflation.
Who should act as Executor?
Best to nominate a professional executor, such as a bank or solicitor, along with a family member or friend; please check the charges of hiring a professional executor in advance!
Do I need to draw up a Will?
If you do not wish to adjust your existing Will other than to include a gift to Auchterarder Golf Club you can do so by preparing a document called a codicil that a solicitor can then check is valid.
How do I choose my solicitor?
The Law Society can help with this: visit www.lawsociety.co.uk or phone 020 7242 1222.
Can I save tax by leaving a gift to Auchterarder Golf Club?
A gift to the Club in your Will is tax-exempt and this may save some of the tax your executors would otherwise have to pay. However, we always recommend consulting a solicitor for further advice.
What is inheritance tax?
Inheritance Tax is the tax payable on the estate you leave in your Will. Further information and current rates are found on the HRMC website.
