Charity Golf Day – Duddingston GC

18th May 2023

Capital City Golf

Join us at our Duddingston Charity Golf Day – on one of the most outstanding parkland courses in the Lothians and Scotland. Within the capital, and beneath the spectacular backdrop of Arthur’s Seat, you will find one of Scotland’s most outstanding parkland courses.

Duddingston Golf

Situated within minutes of Edinburgh’s busy city centre, this tranquil setting has been home to Duddingston Golf Club since 1895 – a course with rich history and known for its challenging design and sweeping fairways. Set in delightful surroundings, the Braid Burn is a key feature, which meanders throughout the course, coming into play on no fewer than 14 of the 18 holes, always sitting in wait to grab that errant shot!

The clubhouse offers first class facilities with a wonderful welcoming staff who cater for all your needs. The award-winning chefs add to the culinary experience. They look forward to welcoming you on the day.

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity would like to welcome you for a fun charity golf competition at one of the most outstanding parkland courses in Scotland.

Charity Golf Competition

Join us in the shadow of Arthur’s Seat for an amazing charity golf competition, with the following packages to choose from:

  • 4 ball costs £300.
  • Corporate sponsor the event from £500
  • Corporate hole sponsorship £250
  • Nearest to pin, Nearest the Pin in 2 & Nearest the Fairway Flag – sponsorship available

“Duddingston is a great test of golf – one of the best in Edinburgh. The course was in fantastic condition”

The Hole in One Club

This year we have an exciting prize up for grabs.  The Hole in One Club are offering all UK charity golf days the prize of a free trip to the iconic TPC Sawgrass in Florida should anyone make a hole in one. Please take a look at information mailshot here.

The Hole In One Club was formed five years ago with the aim of creating a golfing community who share in the love of golf and dream of scoring a hole in one. The achievement of that single shot would then be rewarded with a suitable prize, an opportunity to win a fully expensed trip to TPC Sawgrass.

On the day one of The Hole in One Club representatives will be positioned on a Par 3 tee box making HIO Sign Ups for £10 (12 months) all sign ups will receive a bag tag and if they hit the green receive a sleeve of golf balls. The HIO Club will donate 25% of all sign up fees back to the charity at the end of the event.

Sign up to the Hole in One Club for £10 per year, and if you land a verified ace during the 2022/23 season, then you could be on your way to TPC Sawgrass in Florida, USA for the golfing experience of a lifetime!

The Hole in One Club gives members the thrill of playing for a huge prize every time that they step foot on the tee at a par 3 or even par 4, so what are you waiting for?
