Mind Golf Day

The 2023 Mind Golf day, organised by our very own Stuart Ridley, was hosted at the Mid Sussex Golf Club, supporting two local Charities, West Sussex Mind and Dad la Soul.

West Sussex MIND supports people with their mental health, providing specialist training and campaigning to improve
services and promote understanding. Dad la Soul are a grassroots
movement that uses art/tech/music and play to battle social isolation and loneliness for dads. 

The day consisted of 9 holes texas scramble in the morning, 18
holes in the afternoon, a raffle, auction, and many other activities
throughout the day. Look out for details for next year’s Mind Golf
Day. Over the last two years an amazing £5500 has been raised for
these, close to our heart, charities.

Variety Golf Charity

Here at Golf Escapes, we believe in giving back to the community. That’s why we’re so proud to partner with Variety Golf and support the amazing work they do raising funds to help less fortunate children – you may have seen their Sunshine Buses.

Through their charitable work, Variety Golf provides mini buses/coaches to organisations and schools that cater for children with special needs. A simple trip to a swimming pool, a park, or the beach (an essential part of their education and personal development) would not be as easy for them without the work of Variety Golf.

Being in the golf sector the charity organises bi-weekly events to raise money to fund and, if needed, adapt the coaches to the specific needs of the organisation they are going to. We are very proud that our support so far has helped to raise enough money to donate an entire coach. We hope to continue to work with Variety Golf and raise even more!

The annual Variety Golf – Rugby Legends Invitational @ Loch Lomond GC is always a popular event and recently expectations were exceeded by raising a phenomenal £300,000! Golf Escapes donated prize of a golf holiday at Monte Rei Golf & Country Club helped to achieve this!
