Juboraj Rhiwbina are celebrating 20 years of their Charity Golf Day this summer.
The first Juboraj Charity Golf Day took place in 1998. Held at Whitchurch Golf Club, it was the brainchild of Juboraj Group Managing Director Ana Miah and Juboraj regular Alan MacNeil. The first event was so successful that the pair decided to make it annual and so with Alan’s wife Les as the official scorer, and more recently his daughter Joanna playing a pivotal role in the organising, the popular day has happened every year since.
Last year saw a strong field of 62 players take part in an exhilarating round of golf, and in the Presentation Dinner which was held at the Juboraj in Rhiwbina the same evening. Over £1,000 was raised for Rhiwbina Village Events and for BUEF (Bangladesh UK Environmental Foundation). Over the years, the Golf Day has raised many thousands of pounds for both local and national charities.
The event has been held at various clubs around South Wales over the years, including Radyr, Llanishen, Glamorganshire and Peterstone. This year it will take place at its now regular home of Whitchurch Golf Club on the 6th September. A full round of golf will be followed by a buffet meal and presentation at 7.30pm in the Juboraj in Rhiwbina.
Tee off times start at 11.30am and the price is £50 per player. Last year it was Mark Evans who held up the coveted Winner’s Cup and wore the cherished green winner’s jacket. His name is now engraved for all time on the trophy and so it will be up for grabs again in September.
“We would encourage all golfers to take part in what is a fun-filled occasion,” said Ana. “They can enjoy playing the sport they love with friends, eat great food and do some real good for the local community and worthwhile causes at what has become one of the biggest highlights of our year.”
