About

Mark, Lou, Eddie and Ollie will attempt to play FORE 18 hole rounds of golf (72 holes!!) on FORE different golf courses across 2 counties in only 1 day!! We struggle to get 18 holes in on an average day...with all the shanking, hooking, pea-rolling, duffing and bunkering taking centre stage! 'Can you come and help me find my ball lads' and 'FORE' can be heard all too often! For those not accustomed to golfing jargon, FORE is (thumb down emoji)!

We will though be taking the day very seriously...Our aim is to reward those that will (hopefully) donate to our wonderful cause, the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association by completing the challenge...Our once, enviable levels of fitness have deteriorated over time as fast as Lance Armstrong's fall from grace, to the point where a quiet walk over the contours of a lush green have become an effort! 

Some ancient philosopher once said "A challenge is a dragon with a gift in it's mouth...tame the dragon and the gift is yours" 

In memory of Peter Glew 

Event details

FORE Golf Marathon!

In total, we will walk over 16 miles from tees to greens over 4 different golf courses and driving over 40 miles (if we don't get lost!) to reach each destination. 

We will rise early for a 6.30am tee time at Uttoxeter Golf Club - juggling a bacon sarnie, a coffee and a 7-iron on the 1st tee before making our way to Broughton Heath, then Mickleover before ending the grind at the local, The Manor in Kingstone at an estimated time of 9pm - hopefully the lights are still on in the 19th (or the 73rd) so we can sample a well earned pint or 2 crying into our scorecards but knowing it was all so worth it!! for us and for our charity!
