Another successful SSAFA golf tourney at stunning Southerndown

Flaming June it was not, but the rain stayed away – mostly – and there was the odd break of sunshine for the 2024 SSAFA Wales Charity Golf Day held at Southerndown Golf Club in South Wales, which was won by the Tan Studio team.

Located to the south of Bridgend and overlooking the Bristol Channel, Southerndown Golf Club sits some 200 feet above the Ogmore River Valley, making it one of the most spectacular, and popular, championship courses in South Wales.

Thousands of pounds were raised on the day, money that will go towards funding SSAFA’s vital work for serving personnel and veterans, and their families in Wales.

As valuable as the funds are, it was also an opportunity to raise the profile of SSAFA with teams mostly made up of civilians, giving them the chance to chat with volunteers and staff from the charity.
