It’s been just over a week since the Hire a Hero team put together a spectacular event at the prestigious Stoke Park Country Club, Spa and , Hotel.

On the course as ever, competition was fierce between the teams, competing under stable ford rules to be crowned winners.

Ultimately that title went to the team of Richard Crotty from KSD – Congratulations on your superb gameplay on the day.

As with previous years the Fountain Room of the mansion hosted dinner for supporters of the charity, three courses from Stoke Park’s three AA-rosette award-winning restaurants enjoyed by all in attendance.

A huge thank you to Brian Conley for attending the event and being a spectacular host.

Hire a Hero would like to thank all of its supporters for making the Golf Day at Stoke Park such a big success, all of whom that attended committed to serving those who served us.

Special thanks must also go to the events management team at Stoke Park, Eclipse Strategic Security for sponsoring the winning trophies and Hire a Hero Cup, and of course a huge thank you to everyone who attended the event and continues to support Hire a Hero.

ICONIC: Stoke Park’s mansion

In three weeks Hire a Hero returns to the iconic Stoke Park Country Club, Spa and Hotel for its second golf day.

The 27 hole championship course will once again play host to the charity on 5th September as Hire a Hero seeks to build on the success of its inaugural May event.

The scene for some of the most iconic scenes in world cinema Stoke Park was one of the very first country clubs of its type, and remains one of the most exclusive.

As part of the day guests and supporters of the charity will play 18 holes of the Harry Colt course, architect of Open Championship settings Muirfield, Scotland, and Royal Portrush, Northern Ireland.

Considered one of the “Top 100 Courses of the World”, the inspiration for Augusta National’s ‘Amen’ 16th, for some the opportunity to play Stoke Park is seen as a once in a life time opportunity.

As a prelude to the golf guests will be welcomed to the mansion upon registration by a buffet brunch, before wits are pitted against the 104 year old course.

The Presidents bar shall then welcome visitants before the evening’s dinner.

The mansion’s Fountain Room shall then host the charity’s friends and supporters, a three course meal, auction and raffle making up the evening’s proceedings before carriages are met.

Opportunities are available to support Hire a Hero at Stoke Park, whether through entering a team, joining the charity for dinner or the offer of raffle or auction prizes.
