Potters Bar Town Football Club are giving people the chance to play a round of golf at the Shire Golf Club – as they continue their efforts to avoid a forced relegation.
The Scholars gained promotion to the Bostik League Premier Division at the end of last season, their highest ever league position.
However, FA rules state they must add two stands, providing cover for a further 200 people the end of March or face automatic relegation.
They are looking to raise £5,000 towards their share of the cost and have set up a funding page.
They have already broken the £2,000 barrier and are closing in on the halfway point.
Monies from an auction and raffle at the golf day, to be held on Wednesday, February 27, will also be added.
The day will cost £50 a player with tea, coffee and bacon rolls being provided before a full 18-hole round and a one-course meal in the clubhouse.
There will be cash prizes for first, second and third place as well as the longest drive and nearest to the pin.
Only 72 players will get the chance so to confirm either individual or fourball entry, email Jeff Barnes (firstname.lastname@example.org), Del Flanagan (email@example.com) or Lee O’Leary (LeeOLeary20@hotmail.co.uk).
The Shire in Barnet is the only UK course to have been designed by Seve Ballesteros.
