A huge thanks to all those that supported me on the day and also those that have donated, to date we have raised over £3,300 (inc Gift aid) for the Mental Health Charity MIND, its not too late to donate, the link is below, it would be great if we can get it higher.

Good at guessing?

To raise more funds for MIND during the upcoming 24 hour golf challenge we have decided to have a competition to run alongside the golfing. As most of you know we are playing Texas Scramble for 24hours on 21st June and for a small donation can you guess how many total strokes we will take whilst completing the 16 rounds? There will be 3-4 of us playing and its a total of 144 holes which is a PAR of 544 for one person playing. To guess is £2 a go or 3 goes for £5, just donate online at the link on the picture below and email us with you guess at info@themusketeers.co.uk.

We have some great prizes for the closest ones, there is a half hour golf lesson kindly donated by Matt Vineer, vouchers for 9 holes as well the adventure golf, all at Lymington Golf Centre as well as many other prizes.

All monies raised go to MIND, the mental health charity, which is a great charity to support, particularly in the current climate, any support will be greatly appreciated.

….MIND over matter….

As most of you know our next challenge is to play golf for 24 hours, without stopping, in order to raise funds and awareness for the mental health charity MIND. The challenge in itself is just as much mentally tiring as it is physically, trying to stay awake whilst chasing a little white ball round a field for 24hours is not a easy task, its bad enough on a normal round of golf! The quote:- “Be confused, it’s where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our heart’s wisdom through it. Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always. by S C Lourie is quite apt for our challenge. We have now set up a JustGiving page for donations to MIND, the link is https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/the-musketeers-golf If any golfers are interested in joining us or supporting us in other ways please do not hesitate to contact us.
