Calling all golfers, the forthcoming Horticultural Golfing Society’s Captain’s Charity Day (August 19th) is looking for more players, with the day raising vital funds for the Greenfingers Charity.
Formed in 1929, the prestigious Horticultural Golfing Society’s membership is made up of 75% from the horticultural sector and allied industries with the 25% being friends of those horticultural members. New members must be proposed and seconded by members and must also have an official club handicap of 28 or less.
The forthcoming Captain’s Charity Day will take place at Moor Park Golf Course in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. Crowned Golf Club of the Year at the Club Mirror Awards 2019 and the proud winner of 59 Club’s Service Excellence Award, Moor Park Golf Club is one of the most impressive private members clubs in the UK. This year the Captain’s Charity Day will see players tackle Moor Park’s 18-hole, 72-par ‘High Course’.
Roger Head from the Horticultural Golfing Society – newly confirmed as Sterling Ambassadors for Greenfingers Silver Anniversary Appeal – said: “We are proud to continue to support the Greenfingers Charity and the amazing work they undertake within children’s hospices across the country. The forthcoming Charity Day is testament to this fact, and we hope that others from the horticultural industry will be inspired to join us to not only increase our fundraising total but to network with others from our sector. It’s set to be a great day!”
Talking about the event, Linda Petrons, Director of Fundraising & Communications at the Greenfingers Charity added: “Our sincerest thanks to the Horticultural Golfing Society for their continued support, it really does mean the world to us and those hospices we work with. We wish you the very best for your Charity Day and strongly urge golfers from across the horticultural sector to join in the fun as I am sure it will be an unforgettable experience.”
