The Grove Golf Club Porthcawl

Calling all Archers!

We are delighted to announce that the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer will be holding its third consecutive Archery Golf Tournament in Wales.

This prestigious tournament was launched in 2010 by broadcaster James Whale, Chair of The Fund, an avid archer whose family hail from Porthcawl and has now become an established event in the long bow archery calendar.

The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the Fund by providing information about the cause and prevention of kidney cancer and the effect it has on patients and their families. Kidney cancer is regarded as one of the most deadly cancers but yet, if it is caught early enough, survival rates are good.

James, who will be competing in the tournament himself, was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2000. In 2005 he had his tumour removed and, whilst in remission, his oncologist suggested he set up the Fund to raise awareness of the disease.

The tournament has been put together with the help of experienced long bowman, Graham Anderson, and consists of no more than 50 archers roving the 18 hole golf course to compete for the title.
All archers will be given 3 arrows per hole with points awarded for each recorded hit. The archer with the most points at the end of the tournament will win with bonus prizes for the two runners up.
The agenda for the day is as follows:

1.00pm    Arrival at the Golf Club; tea & coffee and a bacon roll served and rules distributed
2.00pm    Practice
2.30pm    Tournament starts
5.30pm    Tournament ends
