Following the success of last year’s golf event, Stewart Whittaker is organising another golf event to raise money for Time to Talk Liam. The golf event is open to anyone who enjoys and respects a good round of golf and wants to compete for the coveted Time to Talk Liam trophy! For more read below -
This year’s Time to Talk Liam Golf day will take place on Saturday 22nd September 2012 at Birchwood Golf Club in Warrington.
The day is yet to be finalised in terms of running order however it will be something like this:
-Arrive at the course approx 10am
-Tea/Coffee and a bacon sandwich
-18 holes of golf on the championship parklands golf course
-once every player is back in a 3 course meal will be served after which raffle tickets will be sold and -the prize draw made after the presentation has been made.
The cost is £50 per man for the day. I need a £20 deposit for bookings per man and will forward my account details as and when you register for the event. This covers all of the above bar the raffle tickets, prizes have yet to be finalised but we have had items from the following donated so far:
-4 ball from Birchwood golf course
-2 x 2 balls from Ecclestone park
-Meal at Houghwood golf club for 2
-Signed framed picture from Ernie Els
-A number of signed prints from ISM management (They manager Lee Westwood, Darren Clarke, Louis Oustheizan and many more)
I am awaiting confirmation on items from Portal Golf Club, Runcorn GC and Sutton Weaver GC.
I am also awaiting the donation of a Scotty Cameron putter and a spin wedge either a Ping, Titleist or Callaway.
More prizes are being sought and will be confirmed nearer the time.
The day itself will be a 4 man team event with the best 2 scores counting on each hole, don’t worry if you’re on your own or only have 2 or 3 as other players can be swapped around to make up teams as we did last year.
Now the begging part!! For all you high up in office in your respective lines of business, I am also looking for sponsor ship on a hole by hole basis; this will come at a cost of £150 per hole for the first hole and then each additional one at £100. For this you will get a printed banner erected by myself at the hole you have sponsored and a donation into the prize pool, the remaining £120 will go straight to Time to Talk Liam’s pot. If your company wishes to sponsor the longest drive or nearest the pin hole this will be an additional £25 for additional prize and trophy. We have also been given coverage by the Local papers in Warrington and the Echo.
Anyone wishing to play or sponsor a hole can get hold of me by email at email@example.com or on 07817417473
Last year we had 22 lads turn up and raised £1400, I’ve booked 40 to 60 tee slots this time so let’s see if we can double it or better!
Thanks for your time and support lads, I know it means a great deal to both Tony and Cheryl in helping Liam achieve his potential in life.
It’s also been mentioned that it’s my home track, which it is if any of you want to have a knock around there at anytime let me know I will happily take you round!
