Tee off and raise funds for Armed Forces Day

GOLFERS in Cardiff are this month (June, 2015) being invited to sign up for a tournament taking place at a golf club in the area.

We're sponsoring the Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament, which raises funds for South Wales Armed Forces Day, at Cottrell Park Golf Club on June 23. Gareth Howells, General Manager of our Hadfield Road dealership in Cardiff, said: “We are calling for individuals or teams to enter the 5th annual golf tournament in support of Armed Forces Day at Cottrell Park Golf Club in St Nicholas.

“The tournament will cost £25 per person and is open to all. Tea or coffee and a bacon roll will be provided on arrival as well as a light lunch and a few prizes for the lucky winners.

“The event will be a four person scramble format with first tee-off at 9.30am. Participants are asked to dress in golf attire. The maximum handicap for a male is 28 and female is 36. To enter the event people can download an entry form via www.afdsouthwales.org/golf.

“The tournament will raise money for South Wales Armed Forces Day, which takes place in Cardiff on Saturday, June 27."

The aim of Armed Forces Day South Wales is to raise awareness of the contribution made by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces.

It also gives people an opportunity to show their support to the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving personnel, to service families, veterans and cadets.

Gareth added: “We are always keen to help local businesses, charities and organisations within our community. The Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament is a great event and we are pleased that we have been able to lend our support once again.

“As part of the sponsorship, we will also be taking along four new cars to the event for people to look at."

The Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament takes place at Cottrell Park Golf Club in St Nicholas on Tuesday, June 23 from 9.30am.

We currently offer military personnel up to 22% off new Nissan vehicles.
