Fast approaching is our annual Captains Charity Day where we aim to raise as much as possible for the Captains chosen charity, Princess Alice Hospice.
This event will be a 18 hole team event where the best 2 Nett scores (out of 4 in a team) will count per hole to give a team score for each hole.
I will be starting groups from different tees in a shot gun format which players will be told on the day and the shot gun will start at 9am.
Please support this event as it is open to non-members. A £10 green fee as well as the the competition entry fee is applicable to non-members. Any green fees will be waived for all 5 day members who wish to play in this event. Green fees paid will be added to the charity for this event.
Each team of 4 will be asked to pay a competition entry fee of £60 (all of which goes to P.A.H).
Registration will be at 8:00am in the main club room where tea, coffee and pastries will be provided.
To help raise as much as possible for P.A.H we will be running various other challenges throughout the day such as...
Alongside all these events we will also be running a drinks and snacks stand under a gazebo after the 9th hole and every group MUST stop for 10 minutes before continuing their round. All revenue collected from this stall will be added to our total and presented to P.A.H.
Afterwards we will have a prize presentation, auction, raffle and a presentation to Princess Alice Hospice which I do hope will be a record amount for us. If you play you are expected to stay until the day finishes which I anticipate a finish time of approximately 3/3:30pm.
We have some fantastic prizes for auction,details of which will be sent out a few days prior to the event. PLEASE NOTE: If you are able to contribute anything towards our auction please let us know ASAP as this will help to raise the profile of the day and raise more ££!
As per last year our raffle prizes were kindly donated by members and guests and this year we are looking for the same. If you have a little something at home which you think would be suitable for a raffle prize please drop it to the club on the morning of the event (or before) and mark it for my attention alongside a note of your name and I will confirm receipt of your donation. Thank you in advance.
