No Golf site worth it’s due will fail to promote this event – not because it feels it has to, just because it is in honour of arguably the greatest and bravest gentleman – not to mention naturally talented golfer – Europe, nay, the world, has ever seen: Seve Ballesteros.
Seve Day is a golf competition raising money for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation & Cancer Research UK. It will see the top 72 golfers’ Stableford scores from any registered golf course in Europe across the month of August battling out the final, the eventual winner getting a trip to the 2013 US Masters as well as the prestige.
The Celebrity Final, which is being held on my doorstep at The Belfry, is scheduled for October, but don’t miss out – your scores have to be registered at any official European golf club this month to be in with a chance to tee off alongside the stars in Autumn. And, no, I’m not posh enough to live in Sutton Coldfield, but just down the M5 a little in The Black Country.
There are £250 worth of freebies just for registering (£25 / €30), including free 18-hole rounds at The Belfry itself, London’s The Shire or golf courses at any Q or MacDonalds Hotels chains. It doesn’t stop there!
Three of the biggest names in online Golf are pitching in £25 vouchers – Your Golf Travel, Spabreaks.com and Direct Golf UK. And there’s more…
…the Urban Golf Club is offering half an hour lessons at any one of its venues, just for your registration – worth the entry fee on its own! Plus loads of other bits and pieces, if those incentives weren’t enough.
At time of print, just over 1,100 golfers have registered to date and raised more than twenty-seven and a half grand, to be split between the Seve foundation and Cancer Research UK.
Like me, even if you’re not good enough or fit enough (I qualify on both accounts) to play, show your support, anyway! For research, for golf, but most of all for the memory of a man who was not only an ambassador for the sport, but for both fair play and Spain, to boot!
Thanks in advancw, TTFN, Thet Watson. xxx
