Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This August, I'll be part of the team taking on 72 holes of golf (4 rounds) in one day to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
4 rounds of golf in 1 day. Easy I hear you say. Well, let's just put that into perspective.
We will play at Birchwood Golf Club. The course is 6,242 yards (5.7km) which is straight lines from tee to green. A Par score is 71 which means it takes a good golfer 71 shots to complete the course. The average course score is 93.5 shots.
This is where the challenge lies.
The "I can't believe thats called Golf " team will play at Birchwood Golf Club where our course will be approximately 7.5km long (because we are not very good and cannot hit it straight) and where our average shot tally is 112. That's 112 swings of a club that's around 430grams average weight. The shot tally will steadily increase as we get tired, so that could be around 450+ shots during the day, all whilst walking 30km on undulating terrain.
Add to that the fact we will need to start at 5am, we will not finish until 9pm and will stop for 1.5hours for food and refreshments in total through the day.
That's gotta be worth a tenner for the cause doesnt it ?
