CELTIC FC Foundation are delighted to announce that the 21 team places at our inaugural golf day are now sold out. However, there is still limited availability to join us for the afternoon lunch and entertainment at a cost of £40 per person.
The event will take place at Renfrew Golf Club on Thursday, April 2, 2015 – World Autism Awareness Day – and all proceeds will support a new initiative for children and young people with autism.
The format of the Golf Day will see 21 teams playing 18 holes with a shotgun start and a Texas Scramble scoring system. The tournament will include a team of former Celts, including Tom Boyd and Bobby Petta, aiming to take the prestigious Celtic FC Foundation Golf Day trophy.
Following the tournament, there will be a fantastic carvery lunch as well as a charity auction, raffle and entertainment.
In collaboration with the University of Strathclyde, Celtic FC Foundation intend to create a project which will offer an opportunity to enhance each child’s wellbeing through supported physical activity such as football and dance with a focus on fun.
The autism project will also seek to enhance parents’ and carers’ skills in behaviour management with an emphasis on promoting the development of social interaction skills for children and young people with autism.
Ultimately, the proceeds from Celtic FC Foundation’s inaugural Golf Day will help support autistic children and young people through both inclusivity and providing parents and carers with practical skills to enhance their child’s wellbeing.
Celtic FC Foundation CEO, Tony Hamilton, said: “I’d like to thank all of the golfers and the ex-Celts for supporting us in our first golf event. Ultimately our aim is to help children and young people who live with autism. This event will put us in a good position to begin to work in that area.”
