The Bob Wilson Golf Classic
Rudding Park Golf & Country Club, Harrogate, 4th - 6th July, 2019
We are delighted to announce the 2019 venue for the Bob Wilson Golf Classic, in aid of Willow, will be the luxury, award-winning Rudding Park Golf & Country Club in Harrogate. Rudding Park is set in 300 acres, has 2 golf courses, an awarding winning restaurant and a luxury rooftop spa.
The competition will be a team event over 2 days and the evenings will be filled with fundraising fun and frolics!
There are also plenty of things organised for those that don’t play golf including spa treatments and a shopping trip to Harrogate with afternoon tea at the world famous Bettys.
For those who would like to extend their stay we have also arranged a Gastronomy evening and accommodation package for the night before the event (3rd July). You will enjoy a 7 course tasting menu with wine paring followed by a luxury night’s sleep ahead of the big golf event.
Willow is a charity close to all our hearts. Let’s get together to make 2019 another fun filled event that raises funds for Special Days.
Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
Since 1999 Willow has fulfilled more than 15,000 Special Days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.
Founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife Megs, Willow is a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31. Anna’s love of life and the enriching experiences of her own Special Days were the charity’s inspiration.
"THE INSPIRATION FOR WILLOW CAME FROM ONE SPECIAL WOMAN'S DETERMINATION TO LIVE EVERY MOMENT TO THE FULL, DESPITE THE MOST DIFFICULT OF CIRCUMSTANCES."
Bob Wilson, Life President
