Teignmouth Golf Club celebrates its 75th Anniversary in 1999 and in conjunction with the NSPCC have decided to stage a Charity Golf Day on Saturday 1 May.

The club has a charity day each year but in 1999 wishes for the first time to use a slightly different format and invite entrants from across the region. A special effort to increase the charitable donations is being made because of the club's anniversary and also because the NSPCC is a charity especially close to the Captain's heart.

Teignmouth is one of the fine courses designed by Dr Alistair MacKenzie before he created Augusta.The course is open heathland and a good test of golf. The first tee overlooks the Teign Estuary and as you progress around the course there are then wonderful views of Dartmoor. The whole of the back nine overlook Lyme Bay and on a clear day you can see Portland Bill, which is some 40 miles away.

The course is set on the high plateau of Little Haldon some eight hundred feet above sea level, the cousre is unique and from it, the views are extensive and breathtaking.

The first professional at the club was Leslie Drummond who arrived when the club was formed and stayed for 45 years until retirement in 1978. The current professional is Peter Ward who has represented Great Britain in the PGA on two occasions in the match against the USA.

Teignmouth Golf Club are looking for teams of three players to enter this Stableford event. The entry fee is £75 per team and will include coffee on arrival, lunch and 2's sweep, as well as free entry to the putting and target golf competitions. There will also be prizes for longest drives and nearest the pin.

Entries are strictly limited to the first 45 teams that enter.

If you would like to enter a team, please contact Teignmouth Golf Club for an entry form:
