Foundation of Light Golf Day returns for 2024

Join us for an un-fore-gettable day of golf and fundraising at the Foundation of Light Golf Day.

Our annual golf day is hosted at Ramside Hall on the historic Prince Bishops’ course, with this year’s event taking place on Thursday 25th July.

The golf day will be played in a four-ball format with Stableford scoring, with team entry priced at £400+VAT for 18 holes.

There will also be competitions for nearest to the pin and longest drive, with a prize presentation featuring Sunderland AFC legends.

Golfers will be provided with a breakfast roll and tea or coffee upon welcome ahead of a 10am tee-off and can enjoy a BBQ in the clubhouse after the round.

All teams will be given the chance to get a photograph to remember the day and there will be fundraising activities throughout to support the life-changing work of the Foundation of Light.

We also have sponsorship opportunities which could give your company visibility across the day. For more details on sponsorship packages, please find the full information below. To register a team, or enquire about sponsorship, contact:
