ROYAL CROMER GOLF CLUB-
SUPPORTING ASPERGER EAST ANGLIA
100 HOLES OF GOLF IN ONE DAY / CHARITY CYCLE RIDE - IN SUPPORT OF ASPERGER EAST ANGLIA
Paddy Mournian, a member at Royal Cromer Golf Club (RCGC), has set himself the personal challenge of playing 100 holes of golf in one day at Royal Cromer. Why? To raise funds for the Club Captain’s chosen charity this year, Asperger East Anglia, and the RCGC Discretionary Fund. Paddy first joined Royal Cromer in 1988 and, following a period of absence with work commitments elsewhere, rejoined in April 2011. Although he would not tell you so, he is a good golfer playing off a handicap of 5.5, but admits that the challenge will be tough. In total, Paddy will walk an estimated 24 miles – which he has not done since his twenties! – and that is assuming he hits every fairway and green. Something which, in his own words, is “not likely!” Royal Cromer Golf Course does have taxing climbs to a few of the holes. Making those climbs, five times over, will be an achievement in itself.
Club Captain Jayne Jones, who is the first female Club Captain at RCGC in its 129 year history, was thrilled by Paddy’s generous offer. To complete the challenge, he will need to begin at sunrise which is at 4.30am and will not finish until around 8pm. Jayne and her husband Philip will be on the first tee at 4.30am to see Paddy off. There will then be a relay of volunteers throughout the day, providing sustenance and encouragement to Paddy.
Prior to Paddy’s announcement, Jayne had pledged to complete a Charity Cycle Ride also in support of the same causes. From her own family experience, Jayne knows something of the constant challenges facing those people on the autistic scale and this is why she has chosen this local charity this year. Asperger Syndrome (AS) is essentially a ‘hidden disability’ and, like other autism profiles, AS is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. In particular, understanding and relating to other people, and taking part in everyday family, school, work and social life, can be harder.
Paddy’s Challenge will take place on Tuesday 20th June and Jayne’s Charity Cycle Ride is on Friday 7th July. For further information about these events, or if you would like to know how you may donate, please contact Royal Cromer Golf Club on 01263 512884.
