Golf Foundation Goodwood Sixes Golf Day
The Golf Foundation is teaming up with Golf At Goodwood and offering “a wonderful modern golf experience to remember” for lovers of the sport who wish to help encourage more young people from all backgrounds into the game.
Expressly designed for those who are looking to enjoy a unique and innovative golfing event with friends at an iconic venue, the ‘Golf Foundation Goodwood Sixes’ on Monday, October 7, has the added benefit that all funds raised are going to the national golf charity as it helps youngsters of all abilities to Start, Learn and Stay in the sport.
As the Golf Foundation teams up with Golf At Goodwood, the results should provide a spectacular golf day for all who choose to tee it up on the Sussex Downs – playing a range of three exciting golf formats including European Tour-style ‘GolfSixes’, with entertaining on-course challenges, plus a special golf clinic with Golf Foundation Ambassador and European Tour winner Graeme Storm.
Goodwood is synonymous with delivering great occasions and this inaugural event seeks to echo this. Guests will start the day with a lavish breakfast at The Kennels, before enjoying the challenge of The Downs Course in a famous Woody buggy. The day will be completed with a three-course meal with their friends and the chance to bid for luxury experiences in the charity auction, all taking place in the elegant splendour of Goodwood House.
Added details on the day include personalised lockers, an on-course gin tent and other refreshments, the ‘Flop-Shot challenge’, ‘Beat-the-Junior’ and the ‘Beat James Braid’ hickory challenge, the latter named after the five-time Open Champion and designer of The Downs Course. A grand tour of Goodwood House is also on the menu.
The warm and welcoming atmosphere of Goodwood should make the event particularly memorable while the golf course itself and the playing facilities remain the star attraction, as was always the case with the annual Golf Foundation Pro-Am which this event has grown out of.
Bookings are for £960 per team of four. Taking a team not only makes for a fantastic day but can help the Golf Foundation to welcome a new generation of youngsters into the game at a time when all in golf recognise the need to increase participation significantly.
The venue and format of the occasion at Golf At Goodwood offers a fresh take on the society golf event. Indeed, the club has already hosted the official launch back in May of the Foundation’s GolfSixes League programme for 2019. This is reaching 3,000 boys and girls across 260 golf clubs in 55 inter-club leagues via this six-hole fun format which will be sampled here on October 7. Guests also have the added option of experiencing a special 18-hole ‘GolfSixes Challenge’ on Sunday, October 6, before enjoying a Feasting Menu at Goodwood Hotel that evening.
