Golfing enthusiasts, golf widows, even golfing amateurs are invited to take part in the Torfaen Mic Morris Charity Golf fundraiser this summer.
Participants will tee-off at Pontypool Golf Club on Friday 9 June, where they will play a full 18-holes of golf to raise funds for the Torfaen Mic Morris Trust – a charity which supports young sports stars and athletes.
The competition is open to individuals and teams, where they will play in a friendly Texas scramble format. To enter, players will need to have a maximum handicap of 28.
Glass tankards will be awarded for Longest Drive and Nearest to the Pin, with a glass trophy for the winning team.
Christine Vorres, chairwoman of the Mic Morris Fund, said: “The charity golf fundraiser promises to be a day filled with camaraderie, friendly competition and is one of two charity events taking place this year in Torfaen which will provide much needed funding for the trust.
“The trustees appreciate the amount of support received from local companies involved with these events. Due to the cost of living crisis that we are experiencing at the moment, as a Trust we want to support as many youngsters as we can.”
The Mic Morris Trust Fund is open to sporting young people in Torfaen, who are aged 11 up to 21 years, and involved in a sport where they perform, train or compete at a national level.
It was set up in 1986 and is named after a local policeman who was an excellent British athlete, but unfortunately died during a training run at the age of 24.
The Torfaen Sports Development team, which organises the charity fundraiser, is also calling upon local businesses to support the event by donating raffle prizes or sponsoring the glass tankards or trophy
