NSPCC Launches
Mixed Golf Classic


The NSPCC has announced it is to launch a Mixed Pairs Tournament for amateur golfers in 2001 to run alongside the well-established and very popular Ladies’ Classic.

The formats will be very similar with entrants playing qualifying rounds at their own clubs.  The winners from each club play in one of eleven Regional Finals held across the country.  From them, each winning pair is invited to play in the all-expenses-paid Grand Final at the magnificent Forest of Arden course in October 2001.

Tournament Director David Wolstenholme said “the ladies’ tournament has gone from strength to strength.  We are very grateful to our main sponsors, Specialist Sports Travel, Nicklaus Golf Equipment and SportsCard, helping to keep overheads and costs to an absolute minimum, providing more funds for the Society.  We are all very excited about this new tournament and we are delighted that Laura Davies has again offered her patronage.”

Laura Davies, Europe’s finest ever lady golfer is a keen supporter of the NSPCC and the benefits of these tournaments.”  I am delighted to be Patron of these marvellous events.  Not only because the NSPCC is such a good cause, but also because of the benefits for club golf in general and ladies’ golf in particular.  I do not think there are enough competitions of such prestige and ambition for ladies to enter.”

All entrants to the qualifying rounds receive a raffle ticket which could win them a fabulous holiday for two worth almost £4000.  The first prize, donated by Specialist tours of Hebden Bridge, is a trip for two to the US Masters; the world’s most prestigious golf tournament.

Second prize is a weekend for two including golf, accommodation, breakfast and dinner, courtesy of the Forest of Arden.

Potential sponsors, clubs offering hospitality or players wishing to know more about either tournament should contact David Wolstenholme on 01457 874495, e-mail or by post to The Agency, 22 Berry Street, Greenfield, Lance. OL3 7EF.
