Our annual Golf Day took place in September at the stunning Prestbury Golf Club in the heart of Cheshire.
Now in its fourth year, the event is a firm favourite in the calendar and once again, it did not disappoint.
87 golfers took to the course on the day, with Team Sunbridge coming out on top winning the competition with 85 points. This was the team of former West Ham United midfielder, John Moncur, who had the lowest round of the day, a level par 71. Sadly, this just wasn’t enough to win the individual competition, missing out by one point to Ciaran Donnelly of Manchester United Foundation.
Arguably the star of the day was ex-Norwich City and Scotland goalkeeper, Bryan Gunn, the announcer on the Hole in One Challenge. Bryan was keeping spirits high in the blistering heat with stories of his footballing days and comical anecdotes.
Clubhouse Golf, The UK’s No.1 Golf Retailer was the lead sponsor of the day. Their Head of Brand, Nick Oram, who was in attendance said, “Over time we’ve built a strong relationship with Michael, so when it came to the Foundation’s Golf Day here at Prestbury Golf Club, it made sense to be a part of the day.
“Being able to support such a great charity through sponsorship of the event meant that not only could we assist the Foundation, but also, it was an opportunity for us to give visibility to our brand and highlight the strength of our business within the golf industry.
“We’re a family-run business and being able to give back to help people on their journey through sport is massively important to us.”
Everyone at the Foundation was thrilled to team up with Clubhouse Golf for the event. Michael commented, “They’ve been a massive help for this one and hopefully it’s the start of working together for a longer period. We cannot thank them enough for their support".
The event raised an incredible £35,000 for the Foundation. This will go directly to supporting disadvantaged children by providing them with empowering sport opportunities where they feel safe, valued, and inspired to achieve their full potential.
A huge thanks to everyone who attended on the day and contributed to this amazing total.
