ABTA LifeLine’s inaugural fun golf day

Calling all fun lovers – Help raise money and have a great day out with ABTA Lifeline

ABTA LifeLine is inviting the industry to come and join its first “Fun Golf day” to raise vital funds for travel people in need. Whatever your golfing skills, whether you’re a budding Tiger Woods or a crazy golfer, you’ll all be able to compete on an amazing Championship level course thanks to the ‘Texas Scramble’* format allowing everyone a chance to win whilst having fun and laughs along the way.

The day out will take part at Crondon Park Golf Club on June 18 and will start with breakfast on arrival at 11:00 followed by the golf at 13:30. The day will end with awards, a BBQ and charity auction.

The entry contribution to Lifeline for a team of four is £595.

ABTA LifeLine’s director Trudie Clements said “This is Lifeline’s first golf event and we want to make it as inclusive as possible. That’s what’s brilliant about the format we are using, anyone can play and compete with all having a chance to win. The day will be great fun, informal, a chance to meet up with industry colleagues and most importantly, it will help raise important funds for LifeLine when so many in our industry need support.

Everyone will be guaranteed a great day out and Crondon Golf course our hosts, are really looking forward to welcoming us to their World class beautiful course.”

*Texas Scramble

All members of the team get the chance to hit every shot. After all have teed off, the team decides which drive is the best. From there, all members of the team place their golf balls where the chosen drive ended up, with all members playing a second shot from this spot.

From these second shots, one is chosen and all play a third shot from there - and so on until the ball is holed. Each team returns one score for each hole and the team with the lowest score for the round wins.
