Olympic Champion Amongst Golf Day Guests

Olympic gold medallist Allan Wells and former European Golf Tour Executive Director Ken Schofield CBE will both be special guests at the Aldershot Town Golf Day at Puttenham Golf Club on Thursday 21 April.

17 of the 25 available teams have already been taken for the day which will also see several of Barry Smith’s first-team squad playing at one of the area’s best courses.

Teams of four cost £320 + VAT, including bacon butties on arrival, 18 holes of golf and a delicious three-course dinner followed by an auction of sporting memorabilia.

Sponsored by EBB Paper, and generously supported by Srixon Golf, the Aldershot Town Annual Golf Day is a great fundraiser for the Club and one of its most successful and enjoyable events during the year.

Wells Schofield

Wells won the 100 metre gold medal at the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow – in addition to taking silver in the 200 metres – and also won four Commonwealth Games and three European Cup gold medals in a stellar career. He now works as a Systems Engineer at Surrey University.

A member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, Schofield was Executive Director of the European Tour for 29 years, from 1975 until 2004, and oversaw its expansion from 17 events to 45. He added both the Challenge Tour and Seniors Tour to the sport’s calendar and was also instrumental in the extension of the Ryder Cup to include players from Europe, which saw the continent eventually end over 25 years of American dominance.
