Following the first three events, when hundreds of golfers and many other generous supporters helped to raise just over £47,000 for charity, Swing for Sammy returns to Muswell Hill Golf Club in north London for a fourth successive year on Friday 29 July.

The main beneficiary will again be Cancer Research UK, and further donations will also be made to the Hospice in the Weald, the Royal Marsden Hospital, St Mark’s Hospital Foundation, MacMillan Nurses and the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, set up by the famous Spanish golfer who recently passed away having suffered from a brain tumour.

Swing for Sammy celebrates the life and honours the courage of primary school teacher Samantha Trow (nee St John), who died of bowel cancer on 18 February 2008, aged 26.

Open to amateurs and professionals playing in teams of four (best two scores per hole to count; Stableford; full handicap allowance). Cost – £50 a head or £200 per team. To include: coffee on arrival, 18 holes of golf, lunch or afternoon/evening BBQ, dozens of prizes, auction, raffle and disco. Breakfast will be available at the club from 7.30am at a charge of up to £5 a head.

Trick-shot specialist Jeremy Dale will again be the day’s star attraction, and will give one of his famous clinics at the end of play.
