This fantastic charity, of which Guy is a patron of, helps those battling dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport.
Last week we teamed up with Andy from Teeuplo, Liam from Golf Vlogs UK and Jack Bowen the Senior sales Executive at The Belfry Hotel & Resort to take part in Guy Mowbray’s Golf day at Sandburn Hall, York. The event saw teams of 4 take on the picturesque 18-hole course based in Flaxton where a shot gun style start awaited.
We arrived at Sandburn Hall where we were joined by Andy, Liam and Jack ready to take part in the days event where the sold-out event included a two best score counting in a 3/4 handicap stableford. The top two scoring teams faced a sudden death playoff in front of the club house on the challenging par 3 18th, with just one designated team member facing the island green and avoiding a wet end to their day.
In addition, there was a sequence of challenges throughout the day which consisted of a nearest to the pin on the 18th par 3, a longest putt and longest drive. Both which members of our four balls were close to winning, Andy was just centimetres away from winning the longest putt of the day after holing a solid 40ft putt only to find out half way round he had been beaten by a centimetre or two. Also, Jack Bowen was just feet away from winning the longest drive on the par 4 9th. After all the golf and fun on the course, the event hosted an auction which consisted of signed sporting memorabilia, hospitality tickets to a Manchester City game of your choice and several golf holidays provided by ourselves. There was also a raffle at the event followed by a presentation for prizes awarded to the top 2 teams – sadly we didn’t make the cut!
All in all, a fantastic day with over £5,000 raised for The Sporting Memories Foundation. We can’t wait for next year!
