The very first Connect Dacorum Golf Day will be held on Friday 19th May 2017 at the prestigious Harpenden Common Golf Club.
The aim of the day is to have fun whilst raising money for two local charities - Age UK Dacorum and Community Action Dacorum (Connect Dacorum).
Age UK Dacorum is an independent charity working across Dacorum to improve the quality of life for older people. They offer a wide range of services, including social clubs, a handyperson service, dementia services and support for carers. Most of their funding comes from fundraising activities, individual donations, grants, trusts and contracts with Hertfordshire County Council and Dacorum Borough Council.
Connect Dacorum is a project of Community Action Dacorum and creates, facilitates and brokers business engagement and support to benefit the local community as well as connecting all our members to create meaningful partnerships. We work closely with the voluntary, community and public sectors to understand the needs of the community and create innovative ways that business and their employees can get involved in. This relates both to social, economic and environmental issues.
Registration will be from 12.30pm where you can have bacon butties and tea/coffee before you play. We will be having a Shotgun Start at 2pm which means that all players will be starting and finishing around the same time, and means that we are able to dine together at the end of the day (when prizes are awarded and raffles drawn, etc).
The cost per team is £300, which includes tea/coffee and a bacon roll at the start, the round of golf and a delicious 2 course carvery meal in the evening. Non players are welcome to attend the dinner, for only £22.50.
