Its a little early to start this thread, but we need to get this competition advertised as much as possible. The Competition is an all day event starting around 7am on the 1st September, last tee time is around 2.45pm. With prize giving at 7pm.
Bognor Regis Golf Club runs the 'Bader Pipe' Charity golf competition in aid of the Bader foundation, which is for is a charity for amputees, this is the 39th year we have run this comp.
Douglas Bader (WWII fighter pilot who lost both legs, but still continued to fly) was the founder of the Charity, and this year is celebrating 100 years since his birth. The competition is open to any player that turns up on the day, with a nominal charge for entry. We get a number of amputee golfers who also take part, and any amputees play for free. (Amputees must register in advance, as they are the only players given a favourable tee time).
The winners all get prizes donated by the bader foundation, and they are generally glass-ware, etched with Bader foundation info. I won a nice pint glass for coming 3rd two years ago.
If you are interested or especially if you know any amputees who would consider playing, please let me know, or keep an eye on the Bognor website for info. www.bognorgolfclub.co.uk
