Last team bookings for Golf Foundation Pro-Am

8.00am 29th September 2008 - Sponsorship & Events

Supporters of junior grass roots golf are still able to secure last-minute places for the 22nd Golf Foundation Pro-Am, held at the excellent venue of The Buckinghamshire on Monday, 13th October.

The popular event is supported by The European Tour and has raised more than £60,000 for Golf Foundation initiatives in the last three years. Although the field for this year’s Pro-Am is close to capacity, there are a small number of team slots available for late bookers.

On the day, teams of three amateurs will be joined by a Tour professional for a Stableford competition that will be covered by Sky Sports. Last year, Tommy Horton, Jeff Hawkes, Carl Mason, Paul Way, Ian Mosey, Bill Longmuir, and Nick Job were among the well-known Tour pros taking part.

The programme includes champagne breakfast, dinner and a charity auction, with all money raised going to the Golf Foundation’s work to make golf more accessible for youngsters from all backgrounds and abilities.

Sarah Tennyson, marketing manager of the Golf Foundation, said, “This event offers men and women from the golf industry and the world of business a great opportunity to contribute to the future of the game while enjoying a great day’s golf at The Buckinghamshire.”

The Golf Foundation is a charity committed to the sporting and social development of young people through golf and works in direct support of the national golf partnerships of England, Scotland and Wales. This year’s Pro-Am revenue will go towards the delivery of Golf Foundation initiatives such as Tri-Golf and Golf Xtreme in schools, the provision of the structured learning programme, the Junior Golf Passport, at golf facilities, and the Foundation’s inner-city project, ‘Golf Roots’, which this year is taking place in 16 cities.
