Bob Champion Cancer Trust Charity Golf Day 2024

Join us for a great day's golf hosted by Bob Champion CBE to support our prostate cancer research. We’re delighted to announce our 2024 Bob Champion Cancer Trust Charity Golf Day being held on Wednesday 3rd July at leading course, Frilford Heath Golf Club, Abingdon, Oxon.

Teams will be playing the original Red Course, laid out in 1908 by five-time Open Champion, JH Taylor. An authentic, challenging championship course offering a traditional heathland experience with pushed up greens and fairways that demand accurate driving to score.

Frilford Heath Golf Club

A recent host of Regional Qualifying for The Open Championship, the course has also hosted the English Amateur and European Tour 1st Stage Qualifying since 2011.

We welcome individual players and teams of all golfing standards to join us for a great day’s golf to support our pioneering prostate cancer research units at The Institute of Cancer Research and the Bob Champion Research Unit at The University of East Anglia.

The day includes on-course competitions including a "beat the jockey par 3" challenge with leading jump jockey Gavin Sheehan.

A drinks buggy will be circulating during the day to ensure our players are kept well refreshed during their round.

After the round, we have a great BBQ and entertainment lined up at Frilford Heath with prize-giving hosted by our Chairman Mike Cattermole and President, Bob Champion CBE.

Sign up now to secure your team’s place.
