24hr Golfathon Overview

They will be starting at 11am on Saturday 9th July, finishing at 11am Sunday 10th July. Playing golf at the indoor centre in Leominster for 24 hours continuously in an effort to raise money for two great local charities. Herefordshire Mind & Herefordshire Veteran Support Centre

The Format

Both Matt Robson and Paul Kent will be playing a selection of World-famous courses in a "Four-ball" format for a total of 24 hours continuous play. The reason for a Four-ball is because they are offering 2 slots to anybody that wants to join them in slots of 1 hour at a time for a donation of their choice (recommended £10) throughout the day and night. 

At the end of the 24 hours they will be going straight to Alexander Park Golf club to compete in a charity day in aid of Heartlink. So in effect it will be nearer 30 hours of golf.

The famous courses being played on the simulator will include St Andrews (where this year's Open Championship is being held), Augusta, TPC Sawgrass, Pebble Beach & TPC Scottsdale and others should time permit.
