Hope you are all keeping well and perhaps had a go at my 2.6 Variety Golf Challenge in the garden. I managed to get some European Tour Pros to take part and spread the word on social media (I even managed to get Justin Rose to retweet something for us) which helped us raise some more funds – just over £5,000 – and also gain some great exposure for Variety Golf.
A big thanks to quite a few of our members including Tony Negal, Alex Yazdani and many more who got involved and also to our Celebrity ambassadors such as Mark Ramprakash, David Redfearn, Ian Irving and of course Bobby Davro who even dressed up as President Donald Trump and took on the 2.6 Variety Golf Challenge!

This is all excellent exposure for Variety Golf which I hope will continue during in months ahead.
Following Boris Johnson’s latest announcement, it looks like most golf clubs will be re-opening from Wednesday, 13th May. So, all being well, we will be able to dust off the cobwebs and get back into the swing of things and make sure our games are ready for when we are able to run Variety Golf events again. I am working on a new updated schedule and as soon as we are confident it’s safe for us to run an event,
I will let you know. As things stand, our events booked in for September and October will go ahead and I will keep you posted on a new date for Captain’s Day to kick-start our revised programme in style with Captain Len Goodman! Take a look at Len’s video message at: https://youtu.be/NzDMzZTcjKs
