There is still time to book your places on the tee for the 28th Golf Foundation Pro-Am, which will be held on Monday, 6th October, at London Golf Club.

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.

This year, one of the country’s most popular golfing venues – London Golf Club, in Ash, Kent (near Brands Hatch) – stages the event for the third time. Players will tee off on the Heritage course,  a classic Jack Nicklaus layout which forces you to consider every shot. The Heritage has been host to The European Open and is maintained to the very best standards.

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 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 (more than £180,000 has been raised through the Pro-Am in the last nine years).

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.

“The European Tour is one of our strongest supporters as a charity that can make a great difference for children and young people through HSBC Golf Roots. 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 6th October. Bookings are for £1,200 per team. Shotgun start at 10.30am. To find out more about booking a team, call 01992 449830 or see www.golf-foundation.org
