On Friday 13 June the Four Course Classic challenge will see teams of four players from across the UK take on four courses, playing 72 holes and covering 15 miles of fairway, to support the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.
The annual event raises up to £50,000 for the charity, which is funding groundbreaking research to tackle muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular conditions, and supports the 70,000 families in the UK affected.
Britain’s most accomplished female golfer Laura Davies CBE has added her backing to the Four Course Classic. She said: “This is a great challenge to conquer. In attempting to complete four courses in one day for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, not only will you get the opportunity to play some demanding and exciting golf, but also to further pioneering research that could change lives.”
Hundreds of clubs around the UK support the challenge each year, donating free tee times to golfers, with the charity pledging to approach any courses not yet signed up for the event on request. Prizes awarded to top fundraising and scoring teams include golf breaks and signed merchandise.
Ryder Cup-winning captain Sam Torrance OBE, who is a long-term supporter of the event, said: “The Four Course Classic is an opportunity for keen golfers to truly test their mettle while supporting a small charity making a big difference to people living with muscle-wasting conditions. Muscular dystrophy is rare and many people have never heard of it, but it is often devastating for families affected. By taking on the challenge of playing from sunrise to sunset, you will be helping to ensure that the thousands of people who will be diagnosed with muscular dystrophy next year have somewhere to turn.”
