It is well known that business gets done on the golf course. Further education business is no exception. Laurie Russell, chief executive of the Strathclyde European Partnership, told a story to a ceremony at Cardonald College in Glasgow last Friday.

It seems that Ray Bailey, the college's former principal, fell into conversation on the recreational green with Graeme Hyslop, deputy principal at Langside College, but better known as a regular TES Scotland columnist. The subject was how to access goodies from the European Social Fund. No surprises there.

But the result was pound;997,000 for Cardonald, said to be the biggest donation by the ESF to any one organisation.

We trust that Hyslop earned a suitable fee. As for Bailey, he felt able to retire - not on the proceeds, of course.
