It’s not every day that guests come cycling through our gates, but Wednesday 29 June was different as we welcomed the charity team from the On Course Foundation, who took a pitstop with us as part of their journey up the Country.Heading north to St Andrews, the epic journey will see the team, made up of military veterans and beneficiaries of the charity, travel by non-motorised means, carrying a golf pin flag from Royal St George’s Golf Club in Kent, the venue of the 149th Open Championship, to the Old Course at St Andrews in Fife, Scotland, venue of the 150th Open Championship.
Covering a distance of 1,453km the journey will be completed in relay form and includes teams walking, running, swimming, rowing and cycling – with a quick spot of golf along the way!
Centurion Club were lucky to be one of the clubs that the team visited near the start of their journey. Two of team, Del Sullivan and Mick Abbs each took a tee shot on the 18th, following in the footsteps of the likes of Dustin Johnson and Phil Michelson, who just a couple of weeks ahead of them were competing in the inaugural LIV Golf Invitational. A quick photograph to receive the pin flag which was handed over by the cyclists before Dell and Mick were on their way, on foot, for the next 18 mile leg of the journey to xxxx.
"Athough it was a flying visit to Centurion Club, the team and the members were incredibly welcoming and supportive. This event and the charity means so much to me and has helped me on a personal level enormously over the years, so I hope we manage to hit the £150,000 target."
