Sharks vs. Bandits Golf Tournament

  • Handsworth Wood Golf Club (map)

Ladies and gentlemen, time to muster your fourballs for the BPA Charity Golf Day 2016.

DATE: Friday 1st July 2016

VENUE: Handsworth Wood Golf Club

TEE OFF: Shotgun start at 10.15am sharp to ensure to all teams finish around the same time

FOURBALL STANDARD (£280): 18 holes of golf followed by slap-up fish & chips buffet

FOURBALL DELUXE (£310): includes welcome breakfast of bacon baps, tea & coffee, 18 holes of golf followed by slap-up fish & chips buffet

Competition format

  • You will play in your designated fourball.
  • However, players will be randomly allocated to either the Sharks or Bandits team.
  • You then play Ryder Cup fourball format (¾ Handicap).
  • Each hole won represents 1 point. A halved hole is ½ point.
  • At the end of 18 holes all points from all games are totted up to see whether the Sharks or Bandits will be victorious!

Team Shirts

Each player will be given a team shirt, so we will need your player names, handicaps and shirt size (S/M/L/XL/XXL) along with your booking.


Each player will be able to buy up to a maximum of 3 Mulligan passes @ £10 each.

A Mulligan is a stroke that is replayed from the tee off without penalty, due to an errant shot made on the previous stroke.

The benefit being is that the hole is played and scored as if the first errant shot had never been made. Valuable!

It's a zoo out there!

Each fourball will also be given 4 animal cards. As your fourball progresses around the course you, acquire the cards based on the following golfing calamities.

  • CAMEL: In the sand.
  • DUCK: In the water.
  • GORILLA: Out-of-bounds
  • SNAKE: 3-putt (or more)

At the end of the round each card a player has in his possession represents a £10 penalty – all proceeds going to the chosen charities.

Note: Mulligans do not prevent the movement of cards.

Post-golf buffet

To keep the atmosphere light and informal, we have arranged a fish & chips buffet which can be eaten in the SPIKES bar or outside, weather permitting.

Let's have some fun, and raise some money
