On 22 May 2012 a little piece of Spain comes to Wrag Barn Golf and Country Club in Highworth near Swindon, Wiltshire, as the 2012 Club Captain Steve Griffiths and the Ladies’ Captain Juliet Platt will be hosting Golf Challenge and Spanish Experience in aid of research into brain cancer.
Steve and Juliet decided to join forces to raise money for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation working in partnership with Cancer Research UK to beat brain cancer after the golfing superstar passed away last May.
“Seve was such an inspiration on the golf course and in life and I’m really pleased to be raising money for this cause through my captaincy,” said Steve.
To add some extra special Seve style, and the olé! factor, the day will be a true Spanish golf experience with the opportunity to sample Spanish beer, wine, sherry, tapas and paella both on the course and off, and with authentic Flamenco music and dancing for entertainment before the prize-giving.
The format for the day will be a Better Ball stableford pairs competition and throughout there will be the chance to win in putting, chipping and “beat the pro” competitions.
Wrag Barn General Manager Tracey Lee said “I attended a Spanish golf experience in November, and I have to say it was one of the best golfing days out I’d ever had. It seemed a perfect fit to combine this with the Captains’ fund-raising for the Seve charity.”
“This is a great opportunity for business teams to get together for an unusual company celebration, a team-building or incentivised event, so do book early to avoid disappointment. There will also be opportunities for networking and sponsoring holes to get your business known,” said Steve.
Entry is in groups of 4 and the cost of the day will be £50 per person, including all catering and green fees. So gather together your golfing friends, colleagues and clients to join the fiesta in aid of Seve’s charity on this unforgettable day in May.
Sponsorship opportunities to promote your business are available too. Visit www.wragbarn.com to download an entry form, or call Tracey Lee on 01793 861327.
