La Cala Golf Club, Mijas, Costa del Sol, Spain. 5th to 8th November 2021
The Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) are elated to announce that Newell’s Projects Ltd will be the headline sponsor of Newell’s Golf Weekend 2021 in association with The Golf Guide, raising vital funds for SPF.
Newell’s Projects Ltd Managing Director David is a great supporter of the SPF and fits the SPF mantra of “What the mind believes, the body achieves” perfectly. David was a member of the SPF Team that last year took on Challenge Wembley, a gruelling 900 miles cycle, a 26 mile Dragonboat row down The Thames and a Half Marathon run into Wembley delivering the Coral Challenge Cup match ball in time for kick off for the final. David lost an incredible 4 stone to ensure he was in peak condition for the challenge.
David said, “I am so pleased to be able to support the SPF once again. It's going to be a phenomenal weekend of golf, beers and fun. Last year was a life changing experience for me and I know that’s what the SPF excel at along with raising vital funds for The Christie and the Rugby League Benevolent Fund.”
This event is the brainchild of SPF Ambassador and Rugby League Legend Lee Briers.
Lee says, “It has always been my dream to stage a golf weekend for the SPF that will become an annual event. I approached the best in the business, Paul Lambert from The Golf Guide who is a passionate Rugby League supporter and with his contacts we proposed the weekend to be staged at La Cala Golf Course in Mijas which is now in the final two of the best golf hospitality venue in the world. The take up from fellow Rugby League Legends and participants has blown me away. We are very close to putting up the house full signs. The great man Steve Prescott would have absolutely loved this. I am so pleased his son Taylor will be joining us and he'll probably be the favourite to win! As with any event of this nature we cannot do this without our sponsors. On behalf of the SPF we cannot thank Newell’s Projects Ltd enough for their amazing support.''
Paul Lambert from The Golf Guide said “La Cala situated in Mijas, is one of the best golf resorts in the world, along with its sister hotel Sunset Beach. They will offer all our golfers an experience they will never forget. It gives me great pride to be hosting so many Rugby League Legends and golfers. I would like to thank the SPF for the opportunity as I have always supported the great work of Steve and the Foundation. We have a few places still available, if you are interested in joining us you best be quick.”
Rugby League Legends signed up so far include Lee Briers, Adrian Morley, Mick Cassidy, Danny Sculthorpe, Richard Mathers, Phil Veivers, Bennie Westwood and Danny McGuire. They will be joined by the Voice of Rugby League Eddie Hemmings who alongside Sky Sport's Fraser Dainton will be the MC's for the weekend.
European Tour Golfer Phil Archer, who was an inch from becoming the first golfer to shoot a sub 60 on the European Tour, will take on all comers at the “Beat the Pro” competition.
