Fancy playing golf with some of the Legends of Midlands football in September? Fancy representing Coventry City alongside some of your Sky Blue heroes of the past? Well, entering a team into the Midland Golf Challenge could be just the thing for you!
On 19th September 2014 eight teams each representing Aston Villa, Birmingham City, the Sky Blues and W.B.A will be teeing off at the Forest of Arden Golf Club (Maxstoke Lane, Meriden, Coventry CV7 7HR.
CCFPA has been tasked with fielding eight teams to represent the Sky Blues each consisting of three fans and a former player from CCFC. The chance to form a team is being made available via a VIP invitation through us. You would be representing the Sky Blues in taking on your rivals from the three other midlands football clubs. The points achieved by all eight of the Sky Blues teams added together will then be set against those of the other clubs and the highest aggregate total will make the winning Club champions in the Challenge.
The action, mixing with former stars of the midland footballing scene, takes in 18 holes of golf, shotgun style on a superbly appointed course. The Arden Championship Course that has played host to a succession of European Tour Events, such as the British Masters and English Open, and has seen golfing greats, such as Colin Montgomerie and 2011 Open Champion Darren Clarke, crowned victorious. The organisers offer you the chance to spend time with CCFPA’s Cyrille Regis, Dave Busst, Willie Carr as well as the likes of Kenny Burns, Brian Little, Malcolm Page, Lee Hendrie, Bob Taylor and many more yet to be announced.
The day includes tea/coffee and bacon roll on arrival, individual player goody bags and will be followed by a 3 course dinner, entertainment and presentation of prizes in the on-site Marriott Hotel for all golfers and special guests. All this for £495 for a team of three (each of whom will be assisted by a former player). There are preferred rates for accommodation available at the Forest of Arden.
