Ever fancied playing in the Ryder Cup? Walking in the footsteps of legends…Seve’s historic drive onto the 10th green, Sam Torrance’s famous putt that won the 1985 Ryder Cup match for the European Team or Christie O’Connor Jr’s belligerent 2 iron across the lake at the 18th? or Lee Westwood taking the challenge of the 6th hole? Well now could be your chance thanks to GM Fundraising’s inaugural GMF Cup later this year.
“Taking place from 21st to 24th September 2016 at The Belfry – the UK’s home of the Ryder Cup – this really is set to be the industry’s premium golf event,” says Adrian Barraclough, GM Fundraising Team Member. “Two teams of twelve will get the chance to play on the world-famous Brabazon Course that has seen some of golf’s most exhilarating dramas played out. We are hoping to offer all of the keenest golfers in the industry a chance to test their skills over the tight fairways, perilous bunkers, lakes and fast undulating greens that have challenged some of the game’s greatest.
“To make this event really special, every last detail has been considered to replicate the famous battle between the USA and Europe held at The Belfry in 1985, 1989, 1993 and most famously 2002. We will even be dining in the same rooms as the USA and European teams used each evening, enjoying the finest food and wine The Belfry has to offer.
“Two teams of twelve players will compete in a handicapped match-play over days one and two, while day three will be played as singles. Every player will have a personal PGA approved caddie, full kit for each of the three days, up-to-the-second electronic scorecards. Captains and vice-captains are already appointed and dedicated chaperones to take care of each team’s every requirement will be available throughout the event. Guests will also enjoy inclusive bed & breakfast in an executive suite, dinner and wine each evening and on course refreshments throughout the day. All spa facilities are also available during the event. The final presentation will take place on the last evening where partners are also invited to join us at the Gala Dinner style event.
“We couldn’t be putting more into making this event unforgettable, but have only a few places remaining – for further information, please contact Gary Morton on firstname.lastname@example.org.
