As is now tradition for the Captain of Tulfarris Golf Club I will be hosting a
Charity Fundraising Day on Sunday September 24th 2017. The two charities
that I have chosen to support on the day are as follows:
Féileacáin – Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Association of Ireland
These are two charities that have provided immense support to members of my
family over the course of the last few years. I would like to use the Charity
Fundraising Day to help both charities continue providing support to parents
when they are faced with the unimaginable tragedy of losing a child and to the
countless number of people who are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
The format for the Charity Fundraising Day will be as follows:
4 Person Team Event – the Captain’s Yellow Peril
It will be a Four Person team event at a cost of €100 per line. It will be 3
stableford scores to count – and one of the scores must be the ‘yellow team ball’.
The yellow team ball will be rotated among the 4 team members throughout the
round. If the yellow team ball is lost at any point during the round then the team
can only use the best two stableford scores for the purposes of the team
competition. The longer you keep the yellow team ball, the better your chance of
winning the team prize! Full rules and details will be provided on the day.
Singles Stableford Competition – Optional
Alongside the team event will be an optional singles stableford competition that
will be open to all team members who play on the day and the cost of entry into
this will be €5.00 per person. There will also be prizes for the singles stableford
Tee times will be available on the day from 07:20am and you can book a line
through the BRS system or by contacting Norma in the Pro-Shop.

If you can’t enter a team on the day would you consider sponsoring a tee box or a
green? The cost per tee box or green is €50.00. Any other donations that you can
make will be greatly appreciated. Should you wish to sponsor a green or tee box
can you let me know and also send your company details / logo for inclusion on
the sponsorship signs. You can send these to me on e-mail at
email@example.com and if I can have these by the 20th September that
would be great. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Tulfarris Golf Club’ and can
be posted to the Club or handed to me or any member of the Committee.
I hope you can support the Charity Fundraising Day as I hope to raise as much as
possible for these two important charities.
I look forward to seeing as many of you on the 24th September for what should
be a fun day of golf.
