Devon Charity Golf Day

Wednesday 17 July 2024

The 2024 annual Devon Charity Golf Day will once again take place at Dainton Park Golf Club . Set in 125 acres, Dainton Park was designed by acclaimed golf course architect Adrian Stiff, and commissioned in 1993. It has matured into one of the best golf courses in Devon.

This year it will be an 18 Hole Mixed Bowmaker Stableford competition: teams of three men, three ladies or mixed teams off full handicap teeing off in teams of three.

Win a brand new Kia Niro EV for a hole in-one on the 8th hole!

We have teamed up with http://www.speedwell-kia.co.uk for this amazing prize!

‘Speedwell Kia are proud to offer the Niro EV as a hole-in-one prize. The Niro EV is an extremely popular SUV Cross-over vehicle designed from the ground up to exceed the expectations of eco-minded customers. The Niro EV boasts a combined range of up to 285 miles* per charge and is full of specification; a 10 inch built in Satnav screen with Apple Carplay/Android Auto; a reversing camera; front and rear parking sensors; heated seats and heated steering wheel; as well as much more. We look forward to seeing all the participants at Dainton Golf Club as we support another excellent Charity Golf Day for the Army Benevolent Fund!’

Various reward and consolation prizes

The Golfers’ Lucky Dip Envelope is a competition costing £5 per player, (included in the cost for the day), which buys a sealed unmarked envelope on arrival at Reception which contains the name of one of the golfers playing that day. If that name is a member of either the winners or second team then you will be rewarded with a cash prize.

The Waterloo Putting Challenge costs £1 per player, (included in the cost for the day). This competition on the carefully reset practice putting green is a gentle reminder that both pace and time will be needed later.

The Nearest THE Gin (NG), competition costs £1 per player, (included in the cost for the day). The winner will be drawn from a list of those whose tee shot comes to rest within the target circle.

The 18 Hole Mixed Bowmaker Stableford Competition will be the two best scores of three to count on each hole. Individuals not bringing others to make up a team of three are asked to nominate on the application form with whom they would like to play.

https://staustellbrewery.co.uk/ will provide a free drinks point on the 8th which will be stocked with canned beers/lager plus small bottles of wine – one drink per player. A small voluntary donations towards Army Benevolent Fund would be much appreciated.
