Former golf professional and European Tour player David Steele, well known in the golfing fraternity along the Costa del Sol, is holding a unique fundraising event in aid of Cancer Research and Centro Contigo in La Linea in southern Spain.
This will be David’s third Golf Marathon challenge, and at the age of 64 he has decided it will be his last! In 1993, at the age of 38, David raised funds to buy an ambulance for the village of Guadiaro, playing 315 holes over 17 and a half rounds during daylight hours at the San Roque Golf Club.
Ten years later in 2003 at the age of 48, David attempted to break the world record for the most number of holes played in 24 hours using a golf Cart at Dama del Noche in Marbella, raising the extraordinary amount of €100,000 for Cancer research, CIOMA, Assn Espanola Contra El Cancer and CUDECA. The event was covered for television by Sky Sports.
This year the event will take place at the El Higueral 9 hole golf course in Benahavis, on Monday 7th June. David will attempt to play 324 holes of golf over 18 rounds during daylight hours.
You can sponsor David by making a pledge for each hole played or by simply making a donation to the event.
Following on from the Marathon there will be a Charity Golf Day on Saturday 12th June at the San Roque Old and New Courses. This will be a Team Event / Scramble followed by a cocktail party and presentation of prizes.
