Golfers invited to give back to great outdoors in Droitwich

Droitwich Editorial 12th Sep, 2014 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016   0

GOLFERS will be able to spend a day playing their favourite sport, whilst helping the county’s wildlife at the same time.

The event at Droitwich’s Gaudet Luce Golf Club on October 3 will raise funds for the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust (WWT) to help the organistation with its important conservation work.

The golf day has been organised by the WWT’s engagement officer Peter Case and enables participants to enjoy the first-class 18-hole Phoenix course the venue has to offer, along with the two-storey clubhouse and golf shop managed by PGA professional Robert Lang.

Mr Case said: “For many golfers, getting out onto the links is as much about being in the great outdoors as it is about playing golf and meeting up with friends.

“This offers a chance to put something back to those great outdoors while having an enjoyable – and perhaps competitive – day out with friends or colleagues.”

Local sports photographer Joe Turner will be on-site throughout the day to capture the magical moments for both individuals and teams.

Gareth Holliday from Gaudet Luce added he was delighted to be hosting the event and to be supporting the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust which enabled golfers and visitors to respect and enjoy an environment where wildlife and sport existed side by side.

The day runs from 11am to 9pm, with places costing £240 per team – that includes breakfast rolls on arrival, an 18-hole match, reception drink, dinner, opportunity for team photographs and prizes for the first and second placed teams. Dinner tickets are available for non-players wanting to support the day.

Places for teams are limited and must be booked in advance by calling 01905 754919.
