Keith Memorial Day
KEITH CHARITY MEMORIAL DAY – MANOR HOUSE GOLF CLUB, CASTLE COMBE, WILTSHIRE
DATE: TUESDAY 3 OCTOBER 2017
COST: £95 PER PERSON*
*All profits go to Seafarers UK
Keith Eustace-Pedlar was 'Mr Swinger' and his passing last month was a huge loss to the Swingers community. Keith was one of the funniest and most sociable golfers we have ever met and there was never any doubt that we were going to celebrate everything he did for the growth of Swingers, with a charity memorial day where all his many friends could join together to remember all the fun and laughs we had with Keith.
We very much hope Keith's family will be in attendance on the day, as we not only celebrate Keith but importantly raise money for a charity close to his heart - Seafarers UK. Keith was a Master Mariner in the Merchant Navy and as a Westcountry lad the sea and waterways were always a big part of his life.
That our day takes place at the beautiful Manor House Golf Club in Castle Combe Wiltshire is extra poignant as this is where we first met Keith - at the Season 2 Final where he was one of the very few who stayed out in terrible conditions to win the Fun Swingers title. It's the venue where Keith became Mr Swinger, and a venue that is close to our hearts.

Situated on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, the Manor House is set magnificently in 365 acres of rolling countryside. Designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark and opened for play in 1992, the mature oak and beech trees that line the magnificent fairways together with the immaculate greens and the River Bybrook meandering through the middle bring both drama and beauty to this Championship course. In 2006 the course was re-routed and lengthened to 6500 yards, five new tees added and three others resurrected to become one of the most spectacular and challenging 18-hole, par 72 golf courses in England.
The inviting par 4 opening hole is set on the edge of the ‘motte and bailey’ fortification of the original castle and your opening drive needs to carry over part of this. The par 5 third called ‘Doolittle’, is stroke index 1 and it’s a corker – the land tumbles downhill before the sanctuary of the green. There are 5 excellent par 3s on this dramatic layout not least “Burton Brook” the 17th, one of the most exciting par 3s you’ll find anywhere. Just like the village of Castle Combe, the closing hole is one of the prettiest finishes in England. And finally, The Manor House has possibly the finest halfway hut of any golf club - don’t miss the converted Airstream trailer parked up near the starters hut serving hot and cold food and drinks.
Manor House is one of only two venues to host TWO Swingers Finals - Season 2 and Season 7, and we are delighted to return for this very special ocassion.
The package cost of £95 includes breakfast, lunch and 18 holes of golf.
We also hope to provide a sponsors goody bag and there will be prizes for the winners!
We are limiting this day to 30 spaces in the first instance.
