Ratcliffe Golf Day – Friday 7th September 2018

We are hosting the 2nd ‘Ratcliffe Golf Day’ on Friday 7th September 2018 at Rothley Park Golf Club. Last year’s inaugural event attracted 15 teams and raised over £4,000 towards the Ratcliffe 2020 Sports Appeal. This year we have arranged a shotgun start and are hopeful of even more teams entering the golf day. Thank you to all those parents who played last year and have already confirmed their places for this September’s event.

Please RSVP by 25 July 2018. Teams will be allocated on a first come basis.

Ratcliffe Golf Day – September 2017

The inaugural Ratcliffe Golf Day attracted over 60 golfers and was held at Rothley Park Golf Club amidst beautiful, autumn sunshine.  The course was in wonderful condition and the golfers, who played in teams of four, began teeing off at 12 noon and carried on right through until 2.30pm.

The golfers were made up of a large number of current parents along with some past parents, Old Ratcliffians and other guests. After some post-match refreshments the golfers changed for a prize giving dinner which was enjoyed by all the players as well as some additional guests.

After dinner, during the prize giving, there was much hilarity as the Headmaster announced that he had been narrowly beaten to the Longest Drive by Old Ratcliffian Gus Kelly (’10). Prizes were awarded for the top three winning teams including a case of Laurent-Perrier champagne for each member of the winning team.

A big thank you to all those who participated, organised a team or sponsored something on the day. Through this generosity the event managed to raise £4,000 towards the Ratcliffe2020 Sports Appeal which was amazing.

The day was a very enjoyable and following the overwhelming positive feedback from those who participated we expect to hold a similar event next year around the same time.
