Huxley Golf joins charity drive
August 17, 2011

Huxley Golf, a leading manufacturer of all-weather golf surfaces, has swung into action with a host of celebrities to raise vital funds for Leuka, the leukaemia-research charity based in London 's Hammersmith Hospital.

Hampshire-based Huxley Golf, an official PGA supplier, provided a 35-foot green for this month's Leuka Mini Masters' party held at London 's Mayfair Hotel, where a putt-off challenge was held on top of the hotel's penthouse balcony to celebrate the launch of the star-studded tournament.

Huxley Golf also supplied a portable putting green for the tournament itself, which was held on 15th July at Dukes Meadow in Chiswick. The 18 teams competing in the tournament were captained by a host of celebrities that included Gabby Logan, James Nesbitt, Chris O'Dowd and Dougray Scott, the Leuka patron and Mission Impossible star. After some stiff competition, the tournament was eventually won by football pundit and former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins, who was awarded a golden jacket and an Omega watch for his efforts.

The event itself provided live music from acts that included Goldheart Assembly, Starsailor's James Walsh and Glastonbury Festival New Talent winners Treetop Flyers. Radio station talkSPORT broadcasted the event live on air, with reporter Sam Matterface trying his luck on the Huxley Golf putting green, sharing his experiences with over one million listeners.

Paul Chester, Huxley Golf Sales Manager, said: "As its name suggests, the Mini Masters is a fun, tongue-in-cheek golfing tournament supporting a great cause. We were delighted to support the event again this year, helping to raise as much money as possible for Leuka."

Tournament Director, Dan Davies, said; "We would like to thank everyone who attended and those involved in helping to make this year such a success. Specifically, I would like to say a huge thank you to Huxley Golf. I cannot recommend them highly enough both for their top quality products and their invaluable support for such an important cause. They are a joy to work with."

Huxley Golf all-weather greens and tees are used by many of the world's top golfing professionals and leading golf courses, including several Open Championship and Ryder Cup venues. A range of sizes is available for home use, enabling all year round family entertainment as well as practice for the keen golfer.
