Published on: 24th March 2021

The event will take place on Wednesday 23rd June in Harrogate, with the Fence Club hoping it will be the first social event for 17 months.

Toy industry charity organisation The Fence Club has announced the date for the 48th Teddy Simmonds Fence Club Charity Golf Day, which is now due to take place at the Oakdale Golf Club in Harrogate on Wednesday 23rd June, just two days after current Covid restrictions are due to end.

An open invitation has been extended to all toy industry golfers to attend the event, with organiser Simon Anslow confirming: “You do not need to be invited by a member of the Fence Club. Bookings can be from single players and allocated to a team, or you can enter your own team. The golf day is open to all types of golfer, from those who only play a couple of times a year to others that play on a regular basis. The day is all about having fun and raising money for disadvantaged children.”

Players will meet at the club after 8.00 am, with tee slots from 9.30-12.20, although any golfers who wish to travel on the day can have a later tee time if they prefer. There will be prizes on the day for the Winning Team, Individual Stableford, Best Gross and Best Nett, as well as the Best and Worst Fence Club Members.

The cost of entry is £95 per person, which includes golf, refreshments and an evening meal. Non-players are also welcome to attend the 3-course evening meal, which starts at 7.15 pm, for £35 per person. According to Simon, the evening event will see “fundraising, prizes and joviality and we’ll be back into the bar by 22:00.”

An accommodation deal of £89 per night is available to players and spectators at the White Hart Hotel in Harrogate, while Harrogate has many other nearby hotels should that become fully booked.
