Golf Fundraiser 2020
Golf Fundraiser October 2020: Coronavirus Update
In light of the current situation and the fact that there is no way of knowing when circumstances will change, we have decided to put plans for our Annual Golf Day at Thurlestone Golf Club on hold for now. It doesn't feel appropriate to be promoting a public event at this time, and as a charity we must focus our resources where we can have the most impact on fundraising for the Trail. We will review the situation again later in the Spring/Summer. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
Club together to support the Path for all to enjoy!
The South West Coast Path Association Golf Fundraiser at Thurlestone Golf Club is back! This time on Friday 4th October 2019.
Last year we raised an absolutely brilliant £4,062 for the Trail and welcomed players from golf clubs all over the South West, thank you so much to everyone who took part. Can we do even better this year?!

Why support the Coast Path?
The South West Coast Path Association is the charity working to protect and champion the South West Coast Path, so that we can all benefit from the coastal landscape. At 630 miles, the Coast Path is England’s longest National Trail, and it gives access to some amazing natural spaces: over 70% of the Path is in either a National Park or designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Over 9 million people every year use the Trail to enhance their mental and physical well-being, but many don’t realise the hard work that goes into keeping the coastline accessible. Most don’t know that there are teams of rangers, volunteers, and outreach staff, to name a few, working invisibly in the background so we can all enjoy this amazing natural asset. When you consider that climate change is causing increasingly extreme weather to batter the coast; the erosion caused by the growing number of feet on the Path and the finite lifespan of essential infrastructure like bridges and way-markers, you can see why it costs £1000 per mile per year, just to keep the 630-mile trail open. By participating in our golf day, you are directly supporting our work to care for our local Trail.
