Athletic accountants from MHA MacIntyre Hudson in Maidstone won the last KM Charity Golf Challenge with a score of 106, plus a hole in one – but a team of nimble newcomers could easily knock them off their perch.
Around 70 entrants have signed up for the challenge on Thursday, November 23 at Ashford Golf Club, and there are still a couple of places left.
The cash is on offer to anyone scoring a hole in one on hole 18. In addition, there will be hole-in-one prizes for all par 3 holes – plus a raffle and an auction with Ryder Cup tickets, a signed Arsenal shirt, spa days, golf bags and more up for grabs.
The event is being organised by the KM Charity Team and Tesco in Ashford, who will be donating their half of the money to Diabetes UK, their charity for the year.
Tickets are £200 for a team of four, which includes breakfast, a hot lunch and some drinks. After the morning’s exertion is over, golfers will relive the best shots of the day over a drink, followed by lunch and the auction and raffle. The money raised from the raffle will be matched by a donation from Barclays.
Event manager Dominic Comins, from the KM Charity Team, said: “I always look forward to our golf days, which have been immensely popular over the past three years.
“Come and join us for a fantastic day.”
Mary Daly, Tesco’s community champion, added: “It really is just a lighthearted charity event at which everyone is welcome whatever their ability. It’s about having fun and raising money for two great causes.”
The day will start at 8am at the club in Sandyhurst Lane, Kennington.
