I'll wish you good luck with this Christian but I'm afraid that at £1000 for a team of four I'm out.

sorry!  Will try again as the forum doesn't seem to want to let me edit or delete my initial message above! Hi all, I don't know if this is the right place to put this, forgive me if it's not, but I work with a charity in Wales called <a title="Snap Cymru website" href="http://www.snapcymru.org" target="_blank">SNAP Cymru</a>. In May 2012 we are hosting a Corporate Charity Golf Tournament at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport. The event is open to teams of four players whose entry is sponsored by their employer or any company who is willing to cover the entry fee.  Non playing guests are also welcome to come along and stay in the Samuel Ryder Suite throughout the day as the tournament takes place.  Teams of four: £1000 - Non-playing guests: £45 It will take place on the Twenty Ten course where the recent Ryder Cup was held.  Teams are invited to make full use of the members lounge, Samuel Ryder Suite and all guests can stay for the evening dinner after the tournament has ended.

Tim, I'm sorry to hear that you won't be along! I realise the price is probably higher than average but we are hoping that companies would like to sponsor teams to enter rather than individuals pay out of their own pockets. Are we aiming too high here do you think? thanks! Christian

When I have arranged Charity Days , I have asked the Club to waive the green fees, so more money goes to the Charity.  They still profit from the food sales, prizes from their shop and bar takings. One issue for individuals is the cost of the day relative to the cost of going their under their own scheme. Things are pretty tight at the mo for "local" organisations in South Wales and I would expect that level of sponsorship hard to come by.  But you may know more about it than me. From my experience of working in South Wales, the first question you'll get is "Can I get a grant from the Welsh Government?" 

can I get a grant from the Welsh Assembly  ?

Thanks! I've passed on your comments to the fundraising team who are organising the event for them to consider.   Can I ask another question, if I may?  Is playing the Twenty Ten course at the Celtic Manor that big a deal for many golfers?  Would you rather play on a more modest course?

People would rather play "a famous course" but the "rather" starts to thin as the price rises!  (see my early note!) Eh I woudl rather "pay" £45 to play Newport, than £250 to play 2010

I don't really know about this but if you are looking to improve your handicap: Open Golf

£1000 per 4 ball. Thats a little pricey.  I know its for charity but all the same, how much are Celtic Manor making from this Charity day????

I agree

Am I wrong thought this was a members site

Could be wrong wont be the first time

Hi Tiger you following me
