The Shire London has created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for golfers to challenge the 2018 European Ryder Cup Captain in the Thomas Bjørn Trophy on Monday October 9th, 2017.

On that day golfers will play against Danish golfing giant Thomas Bjørn, the club’s Honorary Captain, in a Beat The Pro-style challenge during an 18-hole fourball event which takes place on The Shire London’s Seve Ballesteros-designed Masters Course – the Spanish maestro’s only full UK course design.

Following a full English breakfast buffet and hot drinks, competitors will enjoy an 18-hole tournament with a 10am shotgun start. Golfers will be greeted by Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn on the 7th tee, and will then try to get their ball inside his tee shot on the frequently-photographed short hole.

Everyone who beats Thomas Bjørn on the 7th will receive a prize after their round. Following the day’s golf everyone will enjoy a three-course meal back in the clubhouse, with prizes supplied by event sponsors Callaway Golf, Odyssey Putters and Galvin Green presented by Bjørn himself.

A fourball in the Thomas Bjørn Trophy costs £550, with The Shire London members paying just £395.
