The BADER GOLF PROGRAMME was devised, founded and is still organised by John Southwick as a way of raising funds for The Douglas Bader Foundation.
THE BADER CUP
is now in its 26th year and widely recognised as the largest National Mixed Greensome Stableford Golf Tournament in Europe.
Annually the Tournament raises a substantial amount of money for the Douglas Bader Foundation, which relies almost completely on fund-raising and donations to undertake its valuable work on behalf of amputees and other disabled.
Obviously, the more golfers who enter these competitions, the more funds will be raised so we hope you will enter and, on past experience and feedback, can pretty much guarantee that you’ll have a thoroughly enjoyable time competing!
The Douglas Bader Foundation is blessed with 3 loyal and generous sponsors: MONARCH AIRLINES who fly the competitors to Faro from Gatwick or Manchester and back , THE TIVOLI LAGOS HOTEL, which puts them up for the duration of the competition in excellent 4 star, half-board accommodation, and ONYRIA PALMARES BEACH & GOLF RESORT (nominated in “Best Golf Course Resort in Portugal” in Today’s Golfer Travel Awards 2011), where the finalists will play on the Robert Trent Jones signature course.
(For more information about our Sponsors and any offers or promotions they might be offering, please visit the Sponsors’ Golfing Holidays & Promotions Page.)
We are also, of course, deeply grateful to John Southwick for his continued commitment to the charity and his extraordinary efforts in organising the Tournament from First Tee to Final Green. An enormous amount of work is required in between and it is greatly appreciated.
Without your support the Tournaments wouldn’t be possible and we are indebted to you all.
