Golfers look set to tee off in aid of the RNLI

Golfers enjoying a three day golf tournament which takes place on three different golf courses along Dorset’s Jurassic Coast in September 2014 will be raising vital funds for the RNLI volunteers along the coast. 

The unique Golf Pairs Tournament is three day competition which uses the Stableford scoring system. Starting on 21 September at Came Down Golf Club and taking place on consecutive days at, Lyme Regis Golf Club and Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club, the tournament will also be played in three different formats, Betterball, Greensomes and Foursomes.

The tournament also encompasses four nights Bed and Breakfast accommodation at the Riviera Hotel in Weymouth with a presentation dinner on the final day.

Peter Foster, one of the tournament organisers and the Swanage RNLI Lifeboat Station Appeal Chairperson says;

‘It promises to be a unique event, providing golfers with a fantastic opportunity to play against the spectacular backdrop of Dorset’s Jurassic coastline.

It seems entirely appropriate to use the event to raise funds for the volunteer RNLI crew from stations at Lyme Regis, Weymouth and Swanage who help save those in trouble at sea along this very coast. The money raised will go towards ensuring that they have training and equipment to be able to continue their lifesaving work.

Timed perfectly to coincide with the start of the Ryder Cup, the entry is limited to only 72 pairs. With places being booked up quickly, we’re urging golfers to get their entries in soon.’

Entry to the tournament costs £578 per pair, for more information and details on how to enter please visit or contact Tournament Director John Campbell at
