The Competition

This year the contest is being held in East Sussex on the West Course at Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club, rated by Golf World magazine the best course under 6,000 yards in the UK. John Eakin an eight-handicapper and former club captain of Royal Ashdown will be leading the England & Wales Blind Golf side in an effort to not only retain the trophy but also bring the overall contest scores level.

The England & Wales Blind Golf team is also welcoming a veteran, Danny Daniels, making his international debut at over 80 years of age. ‘Imagine what his grandchildren will make of that,’ says Gilford, ‘with their hero of a granddad playing for his country.’

The standard of golf played by both sides is invariably inspirational to all of those with 20:20 vision and hugely enjoyable for the players and guides taking part. This September’s contest in leafy East Sussex promises to be no less so than all the others.
