There will be plenty of birdies flying around at Shaw Hill Golf and Country Club this season. But for one day only, most of them will be Magpies.

That’s when Chorley Football Club stages its annual Golf Day and when manager Garry Flitcroft and head coach and fellow Blackburn

Rovers legend Matt Jansen, swop studs for spikes.

And you can swing along with them on July 15 and help to boost the club’s finances.

Apart from promising a “hole” lot of fun, there’ll be lots of prizes up for grabs – including a fabulous Nissan Juke car.

It’s been generously provided by Victory Park stadium sponsor The Chorley Group who will hand the keys to the first player to ace the par three 12th hole.

If you want to join in the action you are advised to book your place as soon as possible because the event is limited to 24 teams of four players comprising men, women or mixed.

The format is the popular stableford system with the best two scores on each hole counting. And because it’s a shot-gun start everyone will finish their rounds at the same time.

Shaw Hill, which also supports the Magpies, has kept the price of a team to £350 (VAT=£420), the same as previous years, that covers green fees, bacon sandwiches and tea or coffee on arrival, an evening meal and prize presentation.

You can enter on line at where you will also find more details on the day or by picking up a form from the club office at Victory Park or by contacting Chorley FC Director Jeremy Lee on 07774197303.

Extra guests for the evening meal, at 6pm, are welcome at a charge of £25 a head.
