Guernsey Football Club was proud to announce the Inaugural Matt Le Tissier Golf Day last month, as the club looks to raise funds for the 2018/19 season.
The event gives fans, supporters and sponsors a unique chance to play a round of golf alongside some sporting heroes, including former professional footballers Franny Benali, Gordon Watson and of course Guernsey’s own Matt Le Tissier.
As well as supporting the club, everyone that attends will have the chance to enter a “Closest to the pin” competition, the proceeds of which will go to Ernie's Angels, a charity set up in memory of Ernie Backlund-Leale, which provides financial support towards palliative care and funeral expenses of terminally-ill children in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
While we have fantastic relationships with our corporate sponsors, running a community football club like Guernsey FC requires a lot of resources – we spent over 100,000 on travel alone last season – so the opportunity to raise extra funds while providing an exciting opportunity for fans to play golf with Guernsey’s most successful sporting hero was too good to miss.
Massive thanks to our headline sponsors Infrasoft Technologies for sponsoring the event, and The Golf Club at St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort, St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort for providing the venues and their fantastic support.
We’d also like to thank TaylorMade Golf for not only entering a team but providing some fantastic prizes, more info to follow.
On Friday The Golf Club are holding a custom fitting event with TaylorMade from 12pm-4pm. To book a 30 min slot with the TaylorMade fitter please give them a call on 727039.
