Steve Lewis, Commercial Manager for Direct Golf UK, commented: “We are very proud to be associated with such a fantastic event like the Volvo National Golf Club Challenge, the largest amateur event staged in the UK. Stacey Jeffries and his team have been part of the DG family for a number of years now and the relationship continues to grow year on year. Coupled with supporting the charity Help for Heroes, making a difference to the wounded men and women of our Armed Forces, our association with the Challenge is all the more satisfying. I hope more golfers and their clubs take part in the event this year and show thanks to our troops and their families.”

The Volvo National Golf Club Challenge is the UK’s largest amateur charity golf competition, with the aim to bring thousands of golfers together on their own Golf Courses throughout the United Kingdom for the fourth consecutive year in May, June & July 2013, in an unprecedented show of support for the UK Military.

Direct Golf UK first supported the challenge back in 2011, contributing significantly to the success of the event in both 2011 & 2012. Their continued support this year as our ‘Official Retail Partner’ will go a long way to helping us raise another huge donation for Help for Heroes.”
