AMATEUR golfers are being invited to help drive up the fundraising for two local charities.
The Rotary Club of Knowle and Dorridge’s 37th Charity Pro-Am Golf Competition will take place at Copt Heath Golf Club in Knowle on June 5 in aid of Age UK Solihull and mental health charity MIND.
Teams of four golfers – each assigned one PGA Midlands-affiliated professional– will compete for a host of trophies and prizes across 18 holes.
There will also be lunchtime refreshments, a dinner, auction and raffle.
The event, which is expected to raise around £7,000, will reward the best amateur and professional golfers on the day including the coveted winner’s Perpetual Trophy, plus a host of spot prizes from Nearest The Pin to Longest Drive. This year’s PGA professionals include Matt Schumacher, Roger Gray, Scott Witton and Blake Ellison.
Colin Winstone, who is organising the tournament on behalf of The Rotary Club, said: “This is yet again a wonderful opportunity to play golf with professionals at a prestigious course whilst fundraising for local good causes.
“This is an important annual charity fundraising tournament which over the years has raised more than £300,000 for local charities. We are also inviting businesses to sponsor holes, advertise their company in the programme, also donate items for the auction and raffle.”
Tickets for the tournament are available by calling 07800 121274 or emailing [email protected].
