Following the success of the NSPCC Ladies’ Golf Classic, now in its eleventh year, the NSPCC are launching the new NSPCC Mixed Pairs Classic, offering a marvellous mix of team golf and sociability.

The NSPCC is delighted to offer this great new opportunity to golf clubs, giving their members the chance to play in the qualifying rounds at their own clubs throughout February to July 2001. The winners of these will then be invited to attend all expenses paid regional finals at prestigious venues around the UK during August and September. Regional winners will attend the Grand Final being held at the magnificent Forest of Arden in October 2001.

Laura Davies, event Patron said: "It is great that golfers are being offered such opportunities. These events give them the chance to play against other pairs and the opportunity to go through to finals played at prestigious golf courses whilst helping the NSPCC and CHILDREN 1st to end cruelty to children"

The Ladies’ Classic is played as Betterball Stableford and the Mixed Pairs as Aggregate Stableford, with clubs required to enter a minimum of twelve pairs for each competition. The tournament also offers players the chance to win a fabulous all expenses paid holiday to The US Masters in April 2002 donated by Specialist Tours.

Last year almost 12,000 contestants from around 400 clubs participated and helped raise £15,000 for the NSPCC and CHILDREN 1st, the NSPCC’s sister charity in Scotland. This year, with the launch of the new Mixed Pairs Classic, the combined tournaments aim to raise in excess of £30,000 for the two charities.
