Ayr Utd Legends Footgolf

Ayr United Legends Footgolf Competition Saturday 17th June 2017

 As Ayr United embarks on an ambitious restructuring to begin building a sustainable full-time football club with strong links to the communities and businesses of Ayr and Ayrshire, Scotland’s No.1 footgolfer, Gavin Craig, is doing his bit to help by raising funds to support the playing budget for season 20171/18.

Footgolf is inspired by golf and uses the skills of football and Gavin, with help from friends and family, has organised the inaugural Ayr United Legends Footgolf Competition to be held at Roodlea Family Golf Centre near Coylton, South Ayrshire, KA6 6EP on Saturday 17th of June. The event will have a 1pm meet, a shotgun start and a short prizegiving at around 4pm with a fundraising auction.

This will give you the chance to have a great day out playing footgolf accompanied by and Ayr United figure from the past or present. We’re hoping for 18 teams of 4 to take part with an entrance fee of £25 per player.

Each team will have an Ayr United figure accompanying them but it’s hoped to spice things up the closing few days by opening a transfer window, where teams can bid to win their preferred Ayr United figure from the available list. Ayr United Media has agreed to help in running the transfer window, so watch its Facebook page for details.

If you can’t play, but would like to support the event, business or individuals can sponsor and name a hole for £25.

Our friends at the AU500 Fund have agreed to collect the sponsorship and entrance money on behalf of the event.

We’ll send details on the rules, allowable footwear (no golf shoes or football boots) and the running order of the day to entrants.

If you’d like to enter or sponsor a hole, then please download the application form here, complete and send it to both these email addresses.
