Golf is a test of skill, precision, and endurance. But what happens when you take four golfers and challenge them to play an astounding 72 holes in just one day? The result is not only a test of their mental and physical stamina but also a remarkable opportunity to raise funds for Dementia UK.

On Sunday, August 13 four intrepid golfers are completing 72 holes of golf in support of St Annes Old Links Golf Club Captains Charity in aid of Dementia UK.

The team of four is:

Jan Dulay, the most mature of the group- in age alone- was captain of St Annes Old Links Golf Club 2022- 2023 and plays off a handicap of six. Jan believes his biggest challenge of the day will be not stopping to watch the Red Arrows!

Jon Flitcroft, with a handicap of 10.3, was persuaded to take part in the challenge on a night out. Softened by a beer Jon vaguely remembers agreeing to a gentle day out! Jon just hopes that his slippers will stand up to the test for the final 18 holes.

Harry Smith is the baby of the group but the only professional and possibly the only grown up amongst the fourball! Harry is hoping that he will only be looked upon for advice and not to carry the "old uns" back to the club house.

Kev Wann is the final member of the fab four and is debating which hole he should don his kilt whilst keeping an eye on the weather for any unexpected gusts of wind!

All the sponsorship money collected, via Just Giving, and any donations on the day will support Dementia UK's and Admiral Nurses.
