National Charity Golf Day – a call for entries


Calling all golfers! We are looking for golfers of all levels to compete at our National Charity Golf Day this September.

The National Charity Golf Day will take place on Wednesday 27 September 2017 at the world-renowned Oxfordshire Golf Club.

One of the industry’s most high profile events of the year, the day tees off with bacon rolls and coffee followed by an 18 hole Stableford competition with a shotgun start. Competitors will later sit down to a two-course lunch, prize giving ceremony and charity raffle.

An array of trophies and prizes will be on offer, including awards for the longest drive and nearest the pin. There is a number of sponsorship opportunities available for companies wishing to support.

Dr Tony Smart MBE, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “The National Golf Day has traditionally been among the highlights of our calendar of fundraising events and we’re delighted to be taking it to Oxfordshire Golf Club. It was chosen for its excellent championship course, its central location and the fact it has a hotel on site for anyone wishing to stay the night before.”

Peter Mallinson, merchandise director (home) at AIS, who is helping to organise the event, said: “As well as raising money for the industry’s only dedicated charity, the golf day has always been a terrific event and first class networking opportunity for people working right across the furnishings sector.”
