Golf Foundation Goodwood Sixes Golf Day
The first Golf Foundation ‘Goodwood Sixes’ day was a success, raising £18,500 for our charity.
Teaming up with Golf At Goodwood, we welcomed 22 teams of four to enjoy a unique experience playing three different golf formats on The Downs Course, including sampling the ‘GolfSixes League’ six-hole fun format.
The eventful day and dinner at the Goodwood Estate was packed with fun on-course challenges and a golf clinic kindly provided by Foundation Ambassador and European Tour winner Graeme Storm. The Duke of Richmond also addressed all the competitors after their rounds.
An online charity auction proved a significant draw, with supporters showing great generosity, bidding for golf at some of the UK’s greatest venues including St Andrews and Sunningdale, and experiences like Goodwood’s Festival of Speed, dining with Michelin starred chefs and watching cricket at Lords.
Vanessa Bell, Foundation Head of Fundraising, said: “We’d like to offer a huge thank you to the team at Golf At Goodwood, including Stuart Gillett and Eddie Bullock, and also to our brilliant Ambassador Graeme Storm. Nothing was too much trouble and they have helped us create a wonderful golf experience to remember. We look forward to building on this exciting event for 2020.”
