The Sikh Golf Society of GB is a registered charity (1125354) and is celebrating its 12th anniversary in 2018. The society has raised funds from its members and sponsors for many worthwhile causes including: humanitarian relief projects and support for local charities such as the homeless service in Slough and Age Concern as well as sponsoring eye camps in developing countries. In addition, the society takes a keen interest in promoting the game to younger members and provides introductory lessons as well as sponsoring young golfers in the UK and Kenya.
Why do we raise funds and need your sponsorship?
Sikhs have a long history of helping those in need and follow a concept called Seva which is one of the key pillars of Sikhism. We believe that we should help all those in our communities regardless of faith, colour or background. As more and more Asians are getting into golf, we thought that this was a great way of having a good game of golf as well as making a difference to those in need. We are currently raising funds for Khalsa Aid (www.khalsaaid.org) as well as offering scholarships for aspiring youngsters to become golfers.
Our first ever event was held at the Lambourne Golf Club – Burnham in 2005.This event raised a total of £16,000 for the school. Since then the society has grown every year and we have had over 400 golfers play at our events. During 2010 we handed over in excess of £17,000 to worthy causes.
Please join us to help those in need whilst enjoying the wonderful game of golf.
