Captain's 18 Hole Charity Challenge

by Professional

on Mon September 18, 2023


On Friday 11th August, the Captain and his team of members travelled over 120 miles to play 18 holes of golf, consisting of 1 hole at 18 different golf courses. The course began at Celtic Manor, before moving through Newport and Cardiff playing several courses on the way. The Vale Resort completed the front 9 holes. The team then played Southerndown before travelled out to Swansea, taking on Maesteg and Neath as well on a round trip. A quick pit stop at an, admittedly dubious, short hole at Port Talbot Golf Club followed, before making the journey back into Porthcawl. The Grove and Royal Porthcawl were the penultimate destinations. The group then returned back home at P&K to play their final hole.



Simon Howell, Club Captain 2023:

"We managed to complete our Longest 18 Hole Challenge, arriving back at P&K nearly 13 hours after we started in Celtic Manor. Thank you to everyone who supported us throughout the day and everyone that has made a donation to the Sandville Self Help Foundation. Thank you also to all of the 18 golf clubs that accommodated us, they were incredibly helpful in allowing us onto their golf course as soon as we arrived. Donations from the challenge have taken the total raised during my Captaincy to well over £6,000. This will make such a difference to the amazing work that Sanville does."
