St Helens Council’s Sports Development team is inviting golf enthusiasts to swing into action at a charity golf day on Friday 13 May, 2016, at Houghwood Golf Club.

Now in its second year, the St Helens Sports Development Youth Sports Programme Golf Day - in partnership with the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) - is an 18 hole, four ball competition where the two best scores count, but contains four mystery holes where all four scores are recorded.

Last year, a total of £2,579.68 was raised and split between St Helens Council’s Youth Sport Programme and the SPF.

As a result, young people aged 14 to 24 were able to access fitness activities with qualified tutors for free.

The price of the golf day costs £160 per team (£40 per person) which includes a bacon roll with tea or coffee on arrival, 18 holes of golf - and a meal following the end of play.

Fantastic prizes will be awarded to the overall winners and various competitions will run throughout the day, such as nearest the pin and longest drive.

The day will be rounded off with a presentation ceremony followed by a raffle and auction, with many great prizes up for grabs.

A percentage of all profits will be donated to The Steve Prescott Foundation.

Martin Blondel from the SPF said: “The Steve Prescott Foundation is delighted to continue to work in partnership with the Youth Sports Programme and hopes the golf day is a huge success at the beautiful Houghwood Golf Club.”

Teams are requested to register before the day and sign-in will be open on the day from 11am for a 1pm shotgun start.
