Samaritans’ Charity Golf Day at the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club – Friday 6 September 2019


There is no time like the present to give all you golfers the opportunity of getting your entry registered so you can book your preferred start time.

As you may be aware, Samaritans is a charitable organisation that provides confidential emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which may lead to suicide.

This event has on two previous occasions, over the last four years, raised significant sums towards the running of the Weston-super-Mare and N.Somerset Samaritans Branch which is run entirely by unpaid volunteers and without any financial assistance.

Our branch has annual costs of circa £30,000, all of which we have to raise. We are so grateful for the generosity of those who support us by taking part in fundraising events and for donations from local groups and charities.


The competition will, as usual, be based on teams of four, playing a 4-ball Bowmaker format with the two best Stableford scores to count on each hole.

Maximum handicaps: Men 28 and Ladies 36. (¾ handicap allowance) with, in addition, two courtesy strokes allowance for ladies. Two nearest the pin competitions for both Men and Ladies.

Entry fee (same as for 2017) £140 with a £10 pp reduction for members of Wedmore GC. It includes a bacon butty and coffee/tea on arrival and buffet meal at the end of your round. During the day we will be running a silent auction for some fabulous lots and a raffle for great prizes both of which we hope will be generously supported.

We do hope that those of you who have supported this event previously will do so again and, of course, we would welcome anyone wanting to participate for the first time. It is a great event for such a worthwhile cause. We are also seeking sponsors for each hole either solely for £100 or shared for £50.
