Competition backs the England Golf Trust

England Golf Trust

Women club golfers are being asked to support the England Golf Trust Stableford Competition to raise funds for boys and girls who need financial help to play the game.

The competition includes a club round – any stableford before July 7 – and a national final at Kings Norton Golf Club, Worcestershire, on August 16.

Each club will add together the stableford points of their highest scorer from handicap divisions 1-3 (handicaps 20 and below) and from divisions 4-6 (handicaps 21-36).

The top 30 pairs will be invited to the final which will be played as a better ball stableford competition. The entry fee is just £1 per player, with a minimum club entry of £20.

Next year, the competition will be extended to include men and juniors.

The England Golf Trust was launched last year to provide grants and bursaries for young people in education or aged up to 21. It replaced and extended the work of the former EWGA Trust, which ran a fundraising stableford competition for several years, successfully raising thousands of pounds.

In 2015 the England Golf Trust gave almost £6500 through 18 individual grants and funded seven Angela Uzielli Bursaries and three Bellamy Bursaries.  For the first time boys were recipients of individual grants.
