Mark has 50 in his sights

FORMER Didsbury, Heaton Park and Davyhulme Park member Mark Attwell has set himself a special golfing challenge to mark his 50th birthday later this year in style.

The Burnley member will play in 50 singles Opens at different courses during the year and is looking to raise at least £500 for the Hearing Dogs charity.

He has used his workplace transport logistical skills to great effect to sort out dates, times and venues across the region and beyond to form his ambitious programme in 2016.

Mark said: “I chose the charity because my mother is profoundly deaf and has great support from them. “The current list of events I’ve signed up for are at: Hesketh, Oldham, Fleetwood, West Lancs, Collingtree Park, Bath, Pleasington, Woodhall Spa, Appleby, Manchester Hopwood, Haddington, West Lothian, Virgin Moor Park, World Woods Florida, Ulverston, Royal Ashmore Park, Conwy, The Addington, Morecambe, Lytham Green Drive, Carlisle, Halifax, Ashton-u-Lyne, Dewsbury, Kirby Lonsdale, Hawkstone Park, Accrington, West End, Knott End, JB Clitheroe, Crompton and Royton, Gillingham, Letchworth, Blackpool North Shore, Nelson, Halifax Bradley Hall, Lancaster, Felixstowe Ferry, Southport and Ainsdale, Preston, Crow Nest, Rossendale, Penrith, St Annes Old Links, Lochmaben, Cavendish, Sandiway, Longridge, Blackburn, West Middlesex and Clitheroe with more to add on.

“As well as all these Opens, I am also playing in three Virgin Atlantic Golf Days and three Mixed Opens.”
