About the tour
Midway through 2006, the Steve Redgrave Charitable Trust reached its target of raising £5 million for children’s charities over five years. Having been part of this tremendous achievement, the Sir Steve Redgrave Golden Five Tour had therefore fulfilled its purpose and the La Manga Club Masters 2006 was the last event of this particular Tour.
To fill the gap left in the sporting calendar, a new series of events called the Golden Golf Tour teed off in 2007.
As with the Golden Five, the Golden Golf Tour’s overriding objective is to raise money for children’s charities
It has also retained many of the other popular characteristics of the Golden Five Tour, such as the Order of Merit, Pairs competition, and an annual end of Tour Masters.
However, new features incorporated include an overseas tour, a reduction in the number of domestic venues and a different celebrity ‘figurehead’ for each event, which started, very fittingly, with Sir Steve Redgrave opening the Carrick Course at Cameron House, Loch Lomond last June.
In 2008, the Tour will visit six exciting venues, raising more money for worthwhile children's causes.
