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 at the side 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 £140.

The first Hole-in-One at the first hole will win a trophy and bottle of champagne, made possible by the continuing and generous support of 101 Boutique, Thornhill.

The event will be played as a stroke play competition using handicaps with 2 net scores counting at the first to ninth, three net scores tenth to seventeenth, and all four net scores at the last. 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.

There will be the usual subsidiary challenges to test your players’ skills, ladies and gents nearest the pin and longest drive and of course our renowned raffle etc.


If you are unable to participate, donations are always most gratefully received.
