A hole day for charity

A group of golf lovers are planning a 16-hour game to raise cash for charity.

The four men from Milton Keynes are planning to take part in the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign’s Four Course Classic in an aim to raise hundreds of pounds.

Mark Wilcox, Luke Withers, Mark Johnson and Mark Weedon will aim to play 72 holes between dawn and dusk on June 22. They will tee off from Wavendon Golf Centre before playing at Three Locks Golf Course, Leighton Buzzard Golf Club and Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club.

The group are also calling on other keen golfers in the area to join in the challenge.

Mark Wilcox said: “This will be our second year taking on the Four Course Classic. If you like golf and you like a challenge then this is the ultimate way to put your skills to the test.

“It’s tough to keep motivated after a few bad shots when you are exhausted from walking the fairways. By the time we got to the last round last year we were really struggling to keep going. You have to be very determined – but it is all for a great cause.”

The Four Course Challenge is a national event in which hundreds of golfers from across the UK choose four golf courses to play during the day.

Four Course Classic organiser Hayley Gill, of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, said: “Golfers who sign up to the Four Course Classic will have the opportunity to try out four courses for just the £25 registration fee, if they raise the minimum £250 sponsorship.”
