Direct Golf UK has extended its partnership with the Volvo National Golf Club Challenge and taken on the title of Official Retail Partner.

Direct Golf started working with the NGCC - the UK's largest amateur charity golf competition - in 2011, and will continue to support an event that raises funds for Help for Heroes.

"We are very proud to be associated with such a fantastic event like to Volvo National Golf Club Challenge," said Steve Lewis, Commercial Manager for Direct Golf UK.

"I hope more golfers and their clubs take part in the event this year and show thanks to our troops and their families."

The Volvo National Golf Club Challenge takes place for the fourth consecutive year at golf clubs across the UK in May, June and July.

Stacey Jeffries, Volvo NGCC Event Director, added: "We continue to be humbled by the good will and genuine support we have received from some of the biggest names in golf, and Direct Golf UK certainly falls into this category.

"Its continued support this year as our Official Retail Partner will go a long way to helping us raise another huge donation for Help for Heroes."
