We will hold our 30th Charity Golf tournament at Ilkley Golf Club, one of the best golf courses in Yorkshire. The event raises money for
Local and other Rotary charities including donations this year for Ukraine. Local charities that have benefitted
over the last 12 month include Life Education (Primary School
education), The Forest of Bradford (Tree Planting), Bradford
Metropolitan Food Bank, Children's Heart Surgery Fund, Embrace Child Victims of Crime Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Marie Curie, & Martin House Hospices. Rotary connected charities that are supported include Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Dictionaries4LIfe
The course was designed with input from Dr. Alister Mackenzie, then a member of Ilkley Golf Club who went on to design many other premier courses, including assisting Bobby Jones in the design of Augusta National Club, home of the US Masters Golf tournament.
This year's winners will receive prizes for First, Second and Third place. There will also be prizes for nearest the pin and straightest drive (nearest the centre line).
The competition will again be played in the Stableford format off a full valid club handicap. On the first 9 holes the best 2 scores count, then on the next 6 the best 3 with all 4 players’ scores counting for the last 3 holes.
To avoid bottlenecks as much as we can, tee-off times will be at 10 minute intervals with ball spotters at the notoriously tight and difficult opening holes.
