Nairn Dunbar Charity Golf Day

Thursday 1st September 2022

 

A charity golf day which stands out from the crowd at Nairn Dunbar Golf Links. A wonderful championship links golf course, that promises a fun and enjoyable round for all golfing abilities.
Nairn Dunbar stretches out 6765 yards over 18 holes giving us a challenging par 72. Situated on the stunning Moray Firth, you are provided with unbelievable scenery as you enjoy your day. 
We will provide tasty breakfast rolls, tea and coffee in the clubhouse to prepare you for your charity golf day. Then, when the Army artillery gun goes bang, you’re off on what we hope is a great round of golf.
After your round, we’ve been granted access to the clubhouse for lunch and prize-giving. The clubhouse offers excellent facilities with a wonderful welcoming staff who cater for all your needs. 

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

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?
