The course is generously given for the day by Thornhill Golf Club, to help us raise charitable funds.

 

You may wish to offer hospitality to some Business Customer, treat your staff to a golfing day out by sponsoring a team or just enjoy a game with your friends.

 

You can fly your firm's flag for a day by advertising on one of the course's 18 tees or greens. This is offered to all corporate teams as part of the entry fee.

 

Entries are restricted at the request of the Thornhill Golf Club, so an early response is requested.

 

Teams of four are invited to compete over 18 holes and finish with a meal in the Clubhouse at an all-in cost of £130.

Maximum handicaps will be gents 20 and ladies 28. In accordance with R & A rules there is a 1 stroke addition to handicap for ladies due to playing a gent’s card.
