Many golfers will have heard of the The Variety Club Golf Society, which was founded in 1965 and raises money to purchase Sunshine Coaches for schools and care centres looking after disabled and disadvantaged children.

The money raised at its events, and via the Society’s generous sponsors, has put an incredible 1,150 coaches on the road to date – an average of over 20 per year.

A series of Variety Club Golf Society events is taking place this year from June to October ahead of December’s annual dinner. One of the highlights of the schedule is always the Variety Club Golf Society Sunshine Classic, which this year is being played at Woburn’s fabulous Marquess’ course on June 27.
