SportsAid Cymru Wales Golf Society

 

The SportsAid Cymru Wales Golf Society organises one of the most popular golf programmes in Wales and has long been one of the supporting pillars of the charity.

 

Each year the Society stages around 14 Golf Days between April and October on many of the best courses throughout Wales. With membership at only £20 a year and with various team and individual trophies up for grabs, a good time is had by all!

 

Listed below are the fixtures for 2018. If you would like to take part – and know that by doing so you are contributing to the work of SportsAid - please get in touch with one of the named contacts below.

Golf can be thirsty work....which explains the beaming smiles of the winners of the 2017 SportsAid Cymru Wales Team event as they clutch their champagne and ice bucket prizes!

 

Tony Brown and his son Mark, of Anthony Brown Estate Agents, Llantwit Major, with Neal Pritchard and Dave Williams, defied heavy rain and blustery conditions to return a score of 104 at the Glamorganshire Golf Club, Penarth, home to the competition each year.

 

From left, Dave, Mark, Tony and Neal also won a round of golf for 4 at the Vale Resort, the prizes being donated by SACW Director Dave Mason of DW Harris & Co, Solicitors in Pontypridd. SACW Administrator Linda Chamberlain-Jones said "Despite the weather, enthusiasm and enjoyment remained high and there were some notable performances. Our thanks go to Glamorganshire for once again hosting the event so well."
