This new format pitches 2 footballers against 2 opponents in a better-ball matchplay event, something the footballers thoroughly enjoy, as they very seldom get the chance to play with one another, in the same team, against however many opposing teams of 2, the Corporate client can raise.
You can select any number of footballers from 2/4/6/8/12, or more, from our extensive list of ex- and recently retired players from our Professional Football portfolio .
The cost to you and your company, would depend on the footballers you choose and their availability.
Needless to say you get the chance of competing against some of the games superstars whose competitive nature will test you and your partner to the limit.
At the moment gentlemen we are unbeaten, why not try and be the first Corporate golf team to knock us off the pedestal.
If you run your mouse over the faces of our recent football celebrity golf team you will find who I selected for our first corporate footballers matchplay challenge. Are you ready to take on my next team?
Burhill GC Members v The Footballers
Having inflicted their first ever matchplay defeat 5-2, at their own club in 2013, the members made a much better fist of the job this year. With so many members desperate to be part of their team, the numbers this year were raised to 18 a-side, it could have been more, if only I had been able to persuade more footballers to take part. It was a day they were already committed to other charity golf days up and down the country and unfortunately couldn't make it. Burhill's captain Temi Kapo, selected some of the better club golfers into their team this year, not wanting to suffer another years banter and wind-ups, they have endured since last year.
On top of that, Britains Ryder Cup hero from 2012 Ian Poulter, visited the club during a recent trip in the UK and got into conversation with a couple of Burhill's members who told him of their upcoming match. The following video; a must to see, certainly had the desired effect on their team and they ended up winning quite handsomely 7-2. Thank you Mr Poulter, your video is entertaining and much appreciated, perhaps you might do it for us next year!! The footballers are already itching to get revenge in next year's return at Burhill and we look forward to relieving them of the Trophy we handed back this year.

“What a great ‘Sparks’ trip and much credit to you for all your hard work not only in getting us there but throughout the 3/4/5 days keeping us all in the right place at the right time during the daylight hours. It was all fantastic after the sun went down but I know you were both working behind the scenes in preparation for the next round of golf, etc. I admire your patience in dealing with so many aspects of the event and I sincerely hope you will there again next year. Our travel arrangements were seamless and a big 'Thank You' for always handling our requests calmly.”
“I just wanted to say, we all had a fantastic time at the Footballers Golf Classic and meet a lot of wonderful people. The event was ran and organised to the highest standards and having played in numerous such events over the past 25 years, I can honestly say yours is right there at the top of the list. I have asked my admin to forward a cheque for my deposit for next year and look forward to participating once again.”
