The #GCW Teenage Cancer Trust Golf Day
The #GCW Teenage Cancer Trust Golf Day
Come back here to buy your fourball after you've read all about the #GCW Teenage Cancer Trust Day below!
Absolutely buzzing for Friday now and just need a couple of things from you guys. As we will have live VPar scoring on the day we need handicaps early so we can have it nice and tarty for when you get there! (Form below)
Answer to a couple of questions I've had from you guys...
- No you will not need a blazer or tie for a presentation!!! Wear what you like... I'll probably be wearing tshirt and shorts weather dependent!
- Start time is now 10:30am so it would be great if you could start arriving for 9ish as don't want to be rushing about!
- This means 'presentation' should be around 4ish but we'll be there until late. It is a Friday after all!
Look forward to meeting you all, having a good chat, hitting the odd decent shot, whilst having a beer and raising a few quid for a great cause!
The accessible venue just north of London couldn’t be anymore fitting being the only course in England designed by the maverick and legend that is Seve Ballesteros.
And you can tell Seve’s pristine masterpiece is a creation of the great man. Water hazards wherever you look, no consecutive pars and in equal mix of Par 3s, 4s and 5s.
It's a spanking track as you would expect from the great man and fits his style too. No stuffiness, no dodgy old committee, just a great venue with helpful staff... it's just top class!
As you would imagine with #GCW this won’t be your standard, dull, corporate golf day. We ain’t gonna chuck a load of money at some random celebs to turn up and smile or wave either. We’ll ask some of our recognisable friends from the world of golf and showbusiness but they’ll be treated just like everyone else and will have to stump up!
Arrive nice and early for the obligatory bacon roll and coffee before a shotgun start with your team of four. Expect live scoring and leaderboard… we are the future after all!
Also expect beer tents on the way round as well as challenges such as ‘Beat the Pro’ and all the standard ones as well as some other random #GCW stuff. Think drones, think Happy Gilmore Challenge, Seve challenges... think outside the box, just like the great man!
Add to this the fact the #GCW team will be whizzing about in a buggy capturing everything that happens. Posting videos to 150,000 people, asking whose swing is the worst or making your mate with the dodgy trousers a viral sensation!
Afterwards there willl be a lovely meal, a prizegiving where we’ll have some awesome prizes (Basically because we will pester all our golf brand/famous friends into submission!) and a #GCW interactive presentation where we name and shame some shocking performances… All over a few beers… We picked a Friday for a very good reason!
The Teenage Cancer Trust is a cause extremely close to #GCW. A couple of us had a friend called Ben, and it was his favourite charity.
The TCT helped him immensely when he was fighting cancer, through to him losing a leg and learning how to manage that, and then when he was battling again.
We lost Ben last year but he inspired so many people with his amazing spirit, determination and most of all banter. It was incredible how when he was so close to the end he was chatting about going out on the beers or coming with us to play golf… even after a previous effort at cricket which didn’t work too well! (Although there were a lot of great leg puns on the day!)
This is our little way of carrying on Ben’s positivity and it would be amazing if you could help us out by just showing up for a game of golf and a few beers! We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and know what they go through, turn that into a young person and it just serves to magnify it.
Your support would mean the world to us... and David Beckham!
We want to be inclusive. We could probably charge a fair bit more and get a load of corporate teams in but that wouldn’t be any fun would it?!
So for £360 per fourball you will get a round of golf on a unique and fantastic golf course, a meal afterwards, a cheeky bacon sandwich beforehand and the opportunity to win some absolutely awesome prizes, all the while having the most fun you’ve ever had on a golf day. Trust us on that!
But most importantly you will be doing something incredible by helping us raise money for an amazing cause, that does such great work, touches so many lives and is so close to #GCW.
Every last penny raised will go to charity and we’d be eternally grateful for your support.
