There is still time to book places on the tee for the 29th Golf Foundation Pro-Am, which will be held on Monday, 28 September, at London Golf Club, a European Tour Destination.
Tee times are selling well for this always eagerly anticipated event. The Golf Foundation Pro-Am is supported by The European Tour and is a popular day among golf-lovers from the golf industry and world of business who wish to help make a genuine difference for young people through sport. It is also a prized networking event.
This year the Pro-Am is held again at one of the country’s most popular golfing venues at London Golf Club, in Ash, Kent (near Brands Hatch).
The Pro-Am drama will be played out on The International course, which is judged to be among the finest downland courses in Europe, offering an exciting mix of risk and reward to its players. The highly attractive course has been used for European Tour Qualifying and Regional Open Qualifying in the recent past.
Teams of three amateurs will be supported by a Tour professional for a Stableford better-ball competition which features a range of prizes and on-course challenges. The atmosphere on the day is always very friendly as amateurs are joined by European Tour, European Senior Tour and Ladies’ European Tour players.
Attractions include a champagne breakfast before a shot-gun start, an excellent afternoon dinner and a charity auction and raffle, with all money raised on the day going to the HSBC Golf Roots programme, the Golf Foundation’s national strategy to make the game more accessible to children from all backgrounds and abilities.
Sarah Tennyson, Marketing Manager of the Golf Foundation, said: “There are still team places available but golfers should think now to book their places. There is no doubt that the Foundation’s Pro-Am is a true highlight of the season for many business people. Being held at a great venue with the support of The European Tour makes this a unique opportunity to mix some great golf with prized networking opportunities. This Pro-Am is a great way for companies to ‘put something back’ into the grass roots of the game and help the next generation of young players.”
The big day is on 28 September. Bookings are for £1,200 per team. To find out more about booking a team, call 01992 449830 or see www.golf-foundation.org
