Golf Aid UK Golf Day

 

It was all go at The Shire London on the morning of Thursday 20th August  getting teed up for the very first Golf Aid UK Golf Day. The club was buzzing whilst organisers & sponsors prepared for the prize packed day ahead ..............

Time for the team talk & reminder of what amazing two charities would benefit from the first Golf Aid UK Golf Day.

Sports Traider UK, a youth focused non profit charity making sports accessible for all, founded by Lance Haggith, BBC Sports Personality & also founder of Hoops Aid. Secondly The Golf Trust, a project aiming to bring people together through golf. Breaking barriers to grow participation and inclusion, founded by Cae Menai Davis Pro Golfer at The Shire London.

The day, organised by Helen Kotonias of HKC Management Ltd & Lance was a fun packed event with contests going on all around the stunning & certainly challenging Seve designed course. These were aimed to demonstrate what fun golf can be & of course helped to raise those all important funds that charities need to carry out their amazing work.

Amongst many other challenges on the day were Beat The Lady Pro from European Golf Challenge, Hickory Golf Club Challenge from Hickory Golf Days, Foot Pool & Snag Golf. A real variety & something for everyone which created a real buzz on the fairways and in & around the club house.

After the days golf The Shire London hosted a fabulous 3 course dinner for the 100 golfers. There was a prize giving, raffle & chance to watch some expert videography from Jim White of White23 Sports Event Media showing the highs, lows & bunker banter from the day. All in all a very successful event which raised over £5,000 for Sports Traider UK & The Golf Trust. Lots of smiles & fun had by all.
