Aberdeen Asset Management

The University of Stirling men’s golf programme is proud to have Aberdeen Asset Management as its title sponsor. The partnership, established in 2012, provides the men’s team with vital support as the players hone their skills under the tutelage of former European Tour professional Dean Robertson.
