Shropshire Charity
Golf Society

A history of supporting charities

Shropshire Charity Golf Society (SCGS) was formed nearly 8 years ago providing business professionals with the opportunity to meet for a round of golf on a monthly basis, whilst raising money for a very deserving and local cause.

The Society plays a variety of courses in Shropshire, and beyond, over 18 holes generally on the third Friday of each month.

Testimonials

I love golf but as a business owner I do not have the time to invest in golf membership. SCGS gives me something to look forward to once a month where I can take a break, play a different course each month, be in the fresh air, let my brain take a rest, get some good exercise, what could be better...

Adrian Burton

It seems an ideal avenue to enjoy golf, meet people and have a good time. I like the fact that you don’t have to commit to every event but can play the ones that are convenient

Brian Gilbert

I have been a member of the SCGS for 1 year and even in this short time I have seen the great work that "just playing golf" can provide with the fund raising and hard work by the committee.  The organisation of the golf events is always top class and the friendly welcome I have received from it's members has made the whole experience most enjoyable

Alan Brittain

The profile of members is very diverse in age, occupation, and handicap but without exception, all are very friendly and welcoming to new members. I always look forward to our day out - very informal - for a chat over a bite to eat, a fun round of golf, and a drink in the bar to finish off regaling stories of our successful shots - or otherwise!

I think the beauty of SPGS is that it’s a refreshing change to come across a group which is not all about self promotion hard sell and heavy promotion of your own goods and services and products – it’s a much softer light touch – yes business is discussed but pretty soon people get to know and understand each others businesses and the services and facilities you can provide and business has and continues to follow as a result

Raising money for good causes

Over the past 8 years nearly £9000 will have been raised to support the vital and lifesaving work carried out by Midlands Air Ambulance Charity

Society members advocate that they can relieve some of the pressures of their own work environments on a golf course and also build long lasting friendships with their fellow members.

Midlands Air Ambulance

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity operates and funds three air ambulances covering six Midlands counties, including Shropshire. Each mission costs £2,500 on average, and the charity does not receive funding from the Government or National Lottery for its daily missions, relying entirely on the support and generosity of local people and businesses.

 

2021 marks the air ambulance’s 30th anniversary, and in that time the charity has responded to over 60,000 missions, making it one of the busiest air ambulance services in the UK. The charity responds to some of the most traumatic, time-critical incidents including cardiac arrests, road traffic collisions and sports injuries.
