2019 Sportsman's Charity Golf Classic

Friday 30th August 2019

We are delighted to announce that The Sportsman’s Charity Classic Golf Day is back by popular demand and will be held on Friday 30th August 2019 at The Royal Burgess Golfing Society.

Conscious of demand we wanted to let you, as one of our previous supporters, know the date well in advance to give you the first opportunity to enter a team for the event.

We have, again, secured a fantastic lineup of speakers with the return of Doddie Weir, Willie Allan acting as our MC and auctioneer.  Richard Cockerill will be our principal speaker following in the footsteps of Vern Cotter and Gregor Townsend.

The format will be similar to previous years:


Shotgun Start for Golf

Drinks Reception

3 course lunch with wine in the clubhouse

Speakers and Q & A


The cost of a four man team is £650 and the event will finish by 5pm.

Given this is a shotgun event the number of teams is strictly limited so if you would like to enter a team please let me know as soon as possible by emailing
