Diary Event

Longcliffe has a long and proud tradition of fundraising for Help 4 Hero's charities and, in partnership with Birstall, Kirby Muxloe and Rothley Golf Clubs we have competed in H4H league matches to raise money. During the last 12 years this has exceeded £100,000.

The National Defence Rehabilitation Centre is now located at nearby Stanford Hall and in recognition of our support, the Battle Back Golf Society, which utilises golf to enhance the recovery of Wounded, Injured & Sick (WIS) service personnel, chose Longcliffe for their only fixture of 2020. We have chosen Battle Back Golf as present and future recipients of our fundraising efforts. Currently we are exploring ways to make our relationship even stronger.

Our match was played on the Wednesday before the club championship and saw the course at it very best. Six Am-Am teams, made up of two golfers from the H4H League and two from Battle Back, competed and all present had a memorable evening with the Battle Back golfers being totally inspirational. The highlight of the evening came when a single armed player hit a towering tee shot onto our 1st green to 10 feet and rolled in the putt for a routine birdie.

After an excellent post match meal the Battle Back Chairman emphasised how beneficial these matches are to his team mates and also how pleased they were with this inaugural fixture, which he hoped would be in their diary for many years to come.
