Charity Golf Day – The Irvine GC

4th May 2023

Links Golf

Join us at our Charity Golf Day – ABF The Soldiers’ Charity would like to welcome you for a fun charity golf outing at one of the most outstanding links courses in the West of Scotland.

The Irvine Golf Club

Irvine Golf Club is set in a seaside location, the neighbouring Gulf Stream ensures year round links golf, whilst the romantic peaks of Arran present a stunning backdrop to the landscape.

To play golf in Scotland, you must visit Ayrshire, the birthplace of the Open, and enjoy the links experience at The Irvine GC. It was over the links land of Scotland that the game of golf was born and still today the true links experience is unparalleled the world over.

It truly is one of Scotland’s hidden gems, offering a traditional links challenge, which owes much of its present day character to the course design of the great James Braid. One of Scotland’s most celebrated course designers, James Braid created a legacy of distinctive courses, characterised by their great variety and interesting use of nature’s assets.

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

The club is no stranger to famous players and professional tournaments, playing host to the R&A for the Local Open qualifying when the Open is held at near neighbours, Royal Troon or Trump Turnberry.

Charity Golf Competition

Join us on the Ayrshire coast for an amazing charity golf competition, with the following packages to choose from:

“There are over a dozen fine links golf courses on the Ayrshire Coast. The Irvine Golf Club stands proudly as one of the best but perhaps the most unheralded, Golf Empire.

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?
