Konect Events has been appointed as the organisers of this year’s annual Mayor of Sunderland’s Charity Golf Day on July 31.

And one lucky player could walk away with a £15,000 car if they are able to show their skill on the day.

The event, which will be held at Wearside Golf Club, will see teams of four take part in an 18-hole competition in aid of the Mayor of Sunderland, Councillor Barry Curran, chosen Mayoral charities.

And if anyone is lucky enough to score a hole in one on the first hole they’ll take away an added prize – a Ford Fiesta Zetec donated by sponsors, Benfield Ford.

The event will include tea, coffee and a bacon roll on arrival, a two-course meal after the competition and a raffle, along with the chance to win a number of additional prizes for achievements such as winning team, nearest the pin and longest drive.

The tournament will take the form of a Texas Scramble, with each player will take a shot, choose the team’s best drive and then all four players will take their next shots from that location.

The competition, which is an all-day event, will tee off at9.30am. Tickets are priced at £48 per person or £192 per team of four and are available from

Money raised will go to the Mayor’s chosen charities – Sunderland MIND, Sunderland Armed Forces Network and NDRC (North East Disabilities Resource Centre).
