Team places are available for the Golf Foundation Pro-Am, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year on Monday, 10th October, at Buckinghamshire Golf Club.

The Pro-Am occupies a special place in the golfing calendar, supported by The European Tour and held at one of the country’s most popular golfing venues.

Teams of three amateurs will be supported by a Tour professional for a Stableford competition which features a range of prizes and on-course challenges. The atmosphere on the day is always very friendly as amateurs are joined by European Tour, European Senior Tour and Ladies’ European Tour players.

Attractions include a champagne breakfast, dinner and a charity auction and raffle, with all money raised on the day going to the HSBC Golf Roots programme, the Golf Foundation’s national strategy to make the game more accessible to children from all backgrounds and abilities (more than £120,000 has been raised through the Pro-Am in the last six years).

Sarah Tennyson, Marketing Manager of the Golf Foundation, said: “As our Pro-Am is supported by The European Tour and held at the excellent venue of Buckinghamshire Golf Club, it has become a highlight of the season for many business people, offering an opportunity to network while supporting a good cause.

“This year’s event, being the 25th anniversary of our Pro-Am, should be a celebratory occasion for all those from the business world of golf who want to support the next generation of players.”
