Crown Golf has this week handed-over a cheque for £9,718 to the National Golf Club Challenge (NGCC) after fully reconciling the fundraising efforts of its 27 golf clubs at last year’s event. The 2011 NGCC event was a great success and raised a grand total of over £33,054 for The Seve Ballesteros Foundation, in support of Cancer ResearchUK.

Crown Golf has been a keen supporter of the NGCC for over 2 years, raising a combined total of £34,144 for the event’s beneficiary charities – one of the single biggest contributions.

A number of Crown Golf-owned clubs have already committed to take part in the 2012 event, which will take place throughout June 2012, and is raising money for Help for Heroes. Clubs include: Mill Green GC in Hertfordshire, Broke Hill GC in Kent and Wickham Park GC in Hampshire.

Stephen Lewis, CEO of Crown Golf, said: “Crown Golf and our clubs are proud to support the National Golf Club Challenge. Both the Seve Ballesteros Foundation and Help for Heroes are fantastic charities, helping with vital research and care.”

Matthew Leighton from the NGCC said: “We are really pleased to continue our on-going relationship with Crown Golf and its clubs. The donations we have received from Crown Golf since their first involvement add up to £34,144 (and counting), which represents a superb collective effort by the company’s management, staff and customers. May we say a huge thank you to Crown for their excellent support.”
