Join us for a Ryder Cup special with Paul Way
Canterbury Golf Club is delighted to extend an invitation to visitors to join members and other guests for a Ryder Cup special on the eve of this year's tournament at Gleneagles.
Two-times Ryder Cup player Paul Way (pictured right) will be hosting the event - on Thursday, September 25 - and will be recalling some of his memories from the matches in which he featured, in 1983 and 1985, and giving all-comers an opportunity to pit their skills against his for charity in a beat-the-pro challenge.
The day comprises breakfast, an 18-hole three-from-four team Stableford competition, a three-course lunch, a prize presentation and an auction, after which Way will invite members and guests to fire questions at him in a Q&A session
It was in 1983 that Kent golfer Way, then just 20, became the second youngest player in Ryder Cup history and although the European bid ended in failure at the PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, the Englishman at least had the satisfaction of picking up wins against Tom Watson, Curtis Strange and Ray Floyd.
Two years later at The Belfry, Way (pictured left, celebrating) was a leading member of the team that wrested the trophy from the USA for the first time in 28 years, winning three of his four matches.
The club is hoping to raise enough from the day to provide a specially adapted wheelchair for the local wheelchair rugby club. Any remaining funds will be divided between the Club Captain's and the Lady Captain’s charities.
Cost for a non-members' team is £240 and entries can be made through the secretary’s office (tel 01227 453532 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
