Nelson Trust Golf Day 2015

BY Rebecca Randles ON 17th June 2015.


Friday 18th September, the Avening Course MGC

The day is intended to be enjoyable for both regular and occasional golfers whilst raising much needed funds to support the Nelson Trust.  Minchinhampton Golf Club has kindly agreed to allow us to hold our event on their superb Avening course.  We will have a shotgun start at 9:00am preceded by coffee/tea and bacon rolls on arrival.  There will be a 2 course lunch immediately after the golf at 2.00pm followed by the prize giving and a Charity Auction for some interesting items.  The golf format will be teams of 4 playing a Bowmaker competition for the Richard Lister Trophy;  the best 2 net Stableford scores will count on each hole to the overall team score,  ¾ of handicap will be allowed for each player.

Cotswold Gloucester has already promised us a chance to win a BMW 1 Series for a hole-in-one and we intend to have a prize of at least £50 on each of the other par 3 holes.  At one of these we will introduce an interesting twist where your tee shot will be played with vintage hickory clubs from a shortened tee.  With enough sponsors, we want to provide similar prizes on separate holes for a longest drive (on the fairway of course) and a drive nearest the centre line.  There will also be generous prizes for the first 3 teams.
We are looking for teams of 4 to enter and for sponsors from local businesses.  Why not sponsor and put a team in and we will give you a good deal on the whole package; reward your staff or customers with a great day out and make a much needed contribution to a vital local charity.  See our list of various offers below.

  • £400 for a team of 4 (non-MGC members); reduced by £25 for each MGC member.
  • £1,000 to sponsor a prize hole (to include a 4-man team entry)
  • £300 to place your company’s advertising on the course.
  • Or perhaps just kindly offer us an auction or raffle prize.
