Any Old Irons Community Golf day – Thurs 19th July
Stephen Camacho of Friends of the Elderly wrote to say, “A number of you will remember the Community golf event last year at Beckton, it was a lot of fun. We are running another one on Thursday 19th July!
“Community Golf have a firm belief that there are no barriers that should exclude people from the opportunity of playing and experiencing golf to help lead a healthy and active life that works for individuals. Through their innovative format, they aim to make it easier for people to pick up a club and have a go in a comfortable “no frills” environment.”
