Rovers vs. Burnley Golf Day

20 August 2015

Brought to you by the Blackburn Rovers Former Players Association (BRFPA)

Be a Rover for the day - join us for a golf match to remember and a chance to claim bragging rights over Burnley once again!

August 26th will see Nelson Golf Club welcome former players from both Rovers and Burnley to renew rivalries for an 18-hole stableford golf competition.

We’re looking for 10 teams to compete in this unique opportunity for fans to play golf with former players.  

The special event will include breakfast at 11:30am, with tee off and shotgun start at 1pm, followed by dinner and presentations at 6:30pm. Dinner will also feature former Burnley player Steve Kindon as the after-dinner speaker.
  • £285 per team of three
  • £95 per individual
All proceeds are shared equally between the two Former Players Associations and NSIF (Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation), the charity chosen by the captain of Nelson, Ian Brennan.

Last year’s inaugural match was held on ‘neutral’ territory at Stonyhurst Park and resulted in a tie, so Rovers could still be the first winners!

For more information or to reserve your place, please contact Brian Marsden on 07899 988989.

Dress code: smart casual. Teams may comprise of male and/or female players. Maximum handicaps will apply.
