The 29th Golf Foundation Pro-Am, will be held on 28 September, at London Golf Club, a European Tour Destination. Tee times are selling well but there is still availability for teams. The Golf Foundation Pro-Am is supported by The European Tour and is a popular day among golf-lovers from the golf industry and world of business. The Pro-Am will be played out on The International course, which has been used for European Tour Qualifying and Regional Open Qualifying in the recent past.
Teams of three amateurs will be supported by a tour professional for a Stableford better-ball 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 before a shot-gun start, an excellent afternoon 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.
Sarah Tennyson, marketing manager of the Golf Foundation, said, “There are still team places available but golfers should think now to book their places. There is no doubt that the Foundation’s Pro-Am is a true highlight of the season for many business people. Being held at a great venue with the support of The European Tour makes this a unique opportunity to mix some great golf with prized networking opportunities. This Pro-Am is a great way for companies to ‘put something back’ into the grass roots of the game and help the next generation of young players.” Bookings are for £1,200 per team.
