Parley Golf Centre is hoping to make a splash by holding a charity open day - when golf will be free for all.

Money raised next Thursday 21 August will be going to Water Aid, a charity that improves water quality and sanitation in some of the world’s poorest countries.

During the day’s festivities Daryl Dampney, the centre’s general manager, and club secretary Simon Hentrich, will be playing golf together non-stop for 12 hours.

There will also be various competitions such as longest drive and nearest the pin, which are just £1 to enter.

The centre will be open from 7.30am to 9.30pm and food and drink will be available.

It is hoped that over £2,000 will be raised for the charity and the centre is encouraging people to donate to the cause.

Melanie Maclean, sponsorship and marketing manage at Parley Golf Centre, said: “We are offering a free round of golf or basket of balls for the range to anyone who turns up.

“We’d like to see as many people as possible come and enjoy the facilities.

“It’s a great opportunity for schoolchildren on their holidays to give golf a go – and who knows, we might find the next Rory McIlroy?

“Water Aid is a great charity to be supporting. About half a million children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.

“The more money we raise the more work they can do in improving water quality.”

To donate £5, text PGCT48 to 70070 or visit the JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/Parley-Golf-Funday

Parley Golf Centre is situated opposite Bournemouth Airport.
