We hold an Annual Charity Golf Day every August in conjunction with Hindhead Golf Club and with support from several local businesses. Starting in 1997, the event has gone from strength to strength, and it is now very much part of the calendar of Hindhead Golf Club and a major event in the calendar of Farnham Town. Each year the beneficiary is chosen and Abbeyfield Home for the Elderly, Frensham Pond Sailing Club ("Sailability"), Bells Piece Cheshire Home, and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, amongst others, have all been the beneficiaries of our event. The very first event in 1997 for the Whitmore Vale Home raised £1,195, and progressively this has risen each year. Our success throughout the 22 years to 2018 has raised over £140,000 for local charities and is due to the high number of regular players, both individual and local businesses and the magnificent support of programme advertisers and auction prize sponsors, as well as a large number of Farnham Lions and friends who act as marshals and stewards on the day.

Hindhead Golf Club, Thursday 29thAugust 2019

The Farnham Lions Golf Day goes from strength to strength and is now in its 23rd year. In that time in excess of £140,000 has been raised for local charities, and we thank all those who have taken part in that time for their support and generosity.

Not wishing to rest on our laurels we have decided to develop and enhance the day by changing the format to teams of FOUR with a SHOTGUN START (prefer to enter as an individual? No problem, we can join you up with other players to make a four)

The Competition will be 18 Holes Stableford, and players MUST have an active CONGU handicap. Regardless of playing handicap the maximum allowance on the day will be 24 for Gentlemen and 30 for Ladies. Hindhead Golf Club is a challenging hill and valley heathland course, ranked the 33rd best course in England, and 17th in the South East. It has been an Open Qualifying venue several times.

All groups will tee off from their respective holes at 8.30am, with coffee and bacon rolls in the clubhouse beforehand. After golf there will be an excellent hot and cold buffet lunch with coffee. A Charity Auction and Prize Giving will follow lunch. Prizes will be awarded for:

· Best Individual Stableford Score (1st, 2nd, 3rd)

· Best 4 ball Stableford Score (1st, 2nd, 3rd

· Straightest Drive Winner

· Nearest the Pin Winner

· Putting Competition Winner

Due to a couple of last minute cancellations we now have spaces for a couple of extra teams so if you would like to enter a team PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP

Entry is £420 for a team of 4  (reduced by £32.50 per person for each Hindhead Golf Club member).

The team look forward to welcoming you to Hindhead, and to yet another memorable day of golf, in aid of an extremely deserving cause.
