Banksy/Greeny
with spring just around the corner,it is trust me biggrin.gif
Ive had an idea we could use as a fundraiser

How about a golf tournament?
Theres two ways we could go with this, a simple CFU members day or a Pro Am.
When i say Pro i dont mean golfers i mean ex footballers.
I know Jeff is in touch with quite a few of our ex pros,if we could test the waters of what level of interest is there in any of them joining in that would be great.
I would hazard a guess you would need about 20-25 all joining a team of three to make a fourball.

I can get a good deal at a few local private course with a couple of connections,but if we can get the ex players involved it makes it a bit easier to try and get the price down even further if not free.Think of the advertising in the local press it would bring the course.Plus a good revenue behind the bar for them.

If we cant make it a pro am,then just a simple CFU day out would still raise some cash.
If there are any golfers out there who might be interested,send me a PM to test the water on this,and i can pass it on to Greeny to get the CFU's input.

Let me know your handicap and where you usually play.
What do we think?

Great idea - I think we're going to need an Ideas forum, as it seems to be the order of the weekend!!!

I don't know the first thing about Golf, but I'm sure Greeny can take this one into account.

My only ever round of golf was when I was about 15 and I shot a round of 109, not that bad I hear you say - well it was on Westminster Park's 9 hole golf course!

I can certainly put the feelers out to the ex-players.

Thanks again for the idea.

If anyone has any ideas, please e-mail admin@cityfansunited.com and we'll follow them up.

I love a good internet argument, much more fun than going out of the house and seeing real people.

I play off 28 where they'll let me, and am absolutely useless. Dont play very often, but would be up for this.

Greeny, we could do with a fundraising forum on here. OYEM, you have just talked yourself onto the fundraising sub committee!

I have many things in common with Tiger Woods.

Golf isn't one of them! Great idea though and will investigate.

Talking of an ideas forum, how about a potential players forum?

We have lots of fans watching other clubs and leagues at various levels and age groups; who could suggest players that have caught the eye.

No harm for the club to then have a look at some of the players suggested.

We could form a team. My best score ever is 69 on the Ellesmere Port municipal course.











Didn't do quite so well on the second 9 though... biggrin.gif

It's called getting your money's worth - taking as many shots as possible.

Great idea. Quite a few of the Exiles play golf and I'm sure we'd love to be involved with this - although distance would mean we couldn't be in a regular league. But a pro-am involving some ex-City fooballers would be fantastic and a great fund-raiser. I bet we could raise an Exiles team for it. I'm currently a 23 handicap, by the way.
