Sporting Legends Golf Day

Take Part in a Fabulous Day of Golf at One of Oxfordshire’s Most Popular Golf Clubs.

The Sporting Legends Charity Golf Day has now taken place. There was an excellent turn out at the competition and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. We’d like to thank the legends and all of those that took part in the charity event.

With 133 acres of picturesque parkland, The Springs Golf Club in Wallingford is a stunning venue set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a beautifully designed course to challenge all skill levels. The perfect place for a charity tournament.

Teams will consist of 3 players and 1 sporting legend, your team will then embark on a Texas Scramble, over 18 holes of The Springs’ beautiful golf course. Cost of participation is £1,200 per team of 3 with a sporting legend, or £600 for a team of 4, without a legend. Proceeds from the day, including the charity auction, will be in aid of Reach Out mentoring charity.

The Legends

Your team of 3 will be paired with a sporting legend during a Facebook live event one week before the tournament, make sure you have liked and followed our Facebook page to keep up to date with all the latest information. The legends* include:

  • Will Greenwood – a former Rugby Union player, who was part of the 2003 England World Cup winning squad!
  • Matthew Hoggard – a former English cricketer who played for the national team between 2000 and 2008. Was captain of Leicestershire from 2010 to 2013.
  • Monty Panesar – a current English international cricketer, a popular fixture in the cricketing world.

All For A Good Cause

The days proceeds will be going to Reach Out, which is an important charity that offers mentoring to young people in disadvantaged communities. Reach Out offers one to one mentoring, as well as larger mentoring sessions, it was founded in 1994 and this wonderful charity has grown to the largest mentoring charity in the UK. Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are more likely to struggle with low confidence, low attainment and low aspirations, Reach Out aims to change this and help those from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach their full potential.

The Springs golf day charity tournament will be sending proceeds from the day, including the charity auction taking place in the clubhouse, to Reach Out to help with their mission.
