Event Sponsor: The Golf Trust
Established in 2012 at the Shire London Golf Club by Cae Menai Davis and Frank Harrington, The Golf Trust aims to bring people together through golf. It grew from a shared goal of the two men to showcase inclusive nature of golf.
Cae had been splitting his time between his playing responsibilities on the Asian Tour and his involvement with the Shire London was struck by a broader range of society playing the sport he loves.
It was during a visit to Golf Live at The London Club in Kent that he met Frank who along with Nigel Lawrence had been invited to provide activities for children and young people through their ComGolf programme.
The Golf Trust brings together all the various strands of their sports and education outreach programmes and The Shire London’s work with disabilities, creating something that means everyone can experience golf regardless of ability, age, socioeconomic status or location.
