2020 the 24th Farnham Lions Charity Golf Day

'With a very heavy heart we have taken the decision to not have a Lions Golf Day at all this year, 2020. We simply felt that even through the best endeavours of both Farnham Lions and Hindhead Golf Club, the restrictions that are very likely to still be in place due to the Covid pandemic, would mean that we would not be able to run a golf day to the standard our participants have come to expect.'

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 2019 has raised over £145,000 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.

The 23rdAm-Am Farnham Lions Charity Golf Day 2019

In aid of

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices

A respite charity for young people with life limiting conditions

Hindhead Golf Club, Thursday 29thAugust 2019

The Farnham Lions Golf Day goes from strength to strength and is now in its 23rd year. Since its inception in excess of £145,000 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 decided to develop and enhance the day by changing the format this year to teams of FOUR and a SHOTGUN START ( making sure that those that preferred to enter as individuals were able to do so joining others to make a four).

The Competition was an 18 Hole Stableford and was again played at the wonderful Hindhead Golf Club. Hindhead is ranked the 33rd best course in England and cuts its way through glacial valleys and swathes of heather. As always it proved to be a tough but delightful test to the 76 golfers who played.

All groups teed off from their respective holes at 8.30am, with coffee and bacon rolls in the clubhouse beforehand. After golf there was an excellent hot and cold buffet lunch with coffee. A Charity Auction and Prize Giving followed lunch. Prizes were awarded as follows:

Best Team.

Winners of the Jubilee Trophy.
