3rd Al Murray CamKids Golf Classic

On Friday June 12th, the now legendary Al Murray CamKids Golf Classic hit the fairways, greens and roughs of the magnificent Effingham Golf Club. A very challenging course saw some much improved golf but with some veterans of the event clinging doggedly on to their hacker status.

Al Murray once again delivered liquid refreshments to all golfers, helping to revive flagging spirits as the course challenged every shot. The weather remained dry, which can’t be said of the 72 golfers.

In the evening, 94 guests sat down to a wonderful 3 course dinner, astonishing close up magic by Sav (, prize giving, entertainment, raffle and auction all presided over by Al Murray who was on absolute top form.

In these times of credit crunch and recession, the golf day made a brilliant profit, in excess of £12,000 which is a testament to everyone involved; from Al, to all our sponsors and donors, golfers, volunteers and the friendly, professional and helpful staff at Effingham Golf Club.

Special thanks to:
  • Our patron, Al Murray, for his relentless efforts throughout the entire day and evening.
    Steve Hoatson, for all his help in making the day run so smoothly and relieving us of much of the stress.
  • Gail Taylor, for all her organisational efforts over the many months running up to the event and for her help on the day.
  • Dan Jones, for recommending the course and doing all the initial legwork in securing it for the day and for his continued and valued support of CamKids.
  • Pete Kovacs, for once again doing so much to help make the day a resounding success.
  • All our very generous donors and sponsors for supplying us with fabulous prizes and gifts.
  • Our volunteers, Big Bob and Anne, Lisa, Win, Tim, Cat and Rebecca for their tireless work throughout the day.
  • All the golfers and evening guests enjoyed an unforgettable day and the feedback has been amazing with the general consensus being, it was the best golf day so far…….until next year!!!!
