Sunday 27th August John has set himself a truly crazy challenge, for he is attempting to play 200 holes of golf in a single day, all of which will be on foot.
Covering around 56 miles this 22 lap route (and 2 more holes) of Poulton will have to be completed in just 15 hours. If you do the math it means each 18 holes has to be done in under 1 hour and 20 minutes!!
Almost everyone at the club thinks its impossible - John is keeping quiet on his chances! - why not come down to the club this Sunday and support him, he might need some actual support!!
WHY? The attempt is to raise money for the Club. It is in much need of a new Club house to secure the long term future of an integral part of the local and wider community.
This event will be the first of many over the next few seasons, each one working towards raising money for the Club to the benefit of everyone.
Donations can be made in the Pro Shop at the club, or directly to John's crowd funding page here. If PayPal is your preferred method gifts can be made to :- email@example.com
4 Ball Auction
We have been very fortunate to receive incredible support from golf clubs in the North West. When they heard what John was attempting and what the money raised was being used for, they offered support in the form of rounds of golf for 4 players.
The 4 Ball vouchers are already up for auction, which will end on Sunday 17th September. The impressive list of golf courses can be found by clicking here. Bidding can be done directly through the website or directly with John at the club. Please take a minute to look through the auction list and support if you can.
9 Hole Open - Sunday 17th September
This will be the first time Poulton golf Club has ever run a 9 hole open. The event can be entered by any golfer, of any age, with or without official handicaps. (we will have 2 events for those with and those without handicaps).
Tee times will run through the day, after which we will hold a BBQ, presentation and conclude the fundraising auction. We encourage families to attend as there will be children's games and a bouncy castle to keep them entertained. Bring a chair, sit out on the grass and chill!!
