Liverpool businesses invited to play with Merseyside football legends in
celebrity golf classic
CAUDWELL Children, the national charity that provides practical and
emotional support to disabled children and their families, is looking for
businesses and private individuals to join a host of Merseyside football legends
at its annual Caudwell Children Celebrity Golf Classic (CCCGC).
The event, which takes place at the Praia D'El Rey Golf Club, in Portugal, on
Thursday, 14 September 2017 and Friday, 15 September, 2017, will see the likes of Liverpool's
Ronnie Whelan, Mark Lawrenson and Alan Kennedy joining former Everton centre
half, Derek Mountfield for what the charity desrcibes as:- '1 of the most
prestigious charity golf events in Europe.'
Kerrie Davies, Head of Events at Caudwell Children, says that other Merseyside
greats are still to be confirmed. She said:- "Reds 'Super Sub' David Fairclough,
is a regular at the event and were hopeful that David James, the Liverpool and
former England goalkeeper, will play again after staring in the event last
The Praia D'El Rey is one of the most stunning courses in Europe. As Kerrie
explained:- "Located on the coast it's set amongst extensive pine forests
and undulating dunes and it has the most spectacular view over the Atlantic, and
the Berlenga Islands beyond.
The course has been designed by the renowned American golf architect Cabell B.
Robinson. The deep bunkers, sloping greens and sandy dunes contrast sharply with
the lush fairways, making it the complete golf challenge."
Kerrie is hopeful that keen golfers, who follow both Merseyside clubs, won't be
able to resist the combination of sun, sand, sangria and a round of golf with
their football heroes. She said:- "The CCCGC is a fantastic way to thank
corporate clients, reward high achievers, and network with business people
whilst raising funds for disabled children."
Kerrie says that golfers will also get to mix with some great names from the
words of sport, music, television and film. As she explained:- "We've
enjoyed the support of some fantastic names over the years. Ant and Dec, Tom
Lister who played Emmerdale arch villain Carl King, Olympic sprinter John Regis
and Oliver and James Phelps, who played the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter
series of films, have all played in the CCCGC."
Dean Andrews, the critically acclaimed actor who starred in Life on Mars, Last
Tango in Halifax and Waterloo Road, is delighted to be heading for the sun. As
he explained:- "I love playing in this event. It will be a fantastic
couple of days on a spectacular course, with fantastic people for a really
important cause. The event is superbly organised and the fine dining and
convivial atmosphere add to the enjoyment."
Ticket packages for the event include 3 nights' accommodation at the luxurious,
5 star, Praia D'El Rey Marriot Beach resort. "Players get a fantastic
breakfast, lunch on the course, drinks in the clubhouse and three sensational
evening meals featuring Portuguese and Mediterranean menus." Said Kerrie.
Harry Potter star, Oliver Phelps says he's looking forward to playing in the
event again. He said:- "It's always a great laugh and very social. The
perfect mix when raising money for such a great cause."
