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.
