Funky trousers competition to raise awareness for charity event

Keith Baker and three golf-loving-pals will be wearing their funky trousers early this month of May to raise awareness of a July charity event to raise money for Cancer Research UK in memory of Richard ‘Quin’ Hawtin, past club member and former secretary of the City Livery Club Golf Society, who died from oesophageal cancer in November 2022.

Please send enquiries for the date and the teaser event photo opportunities to Keith Baker at 07712 134528.

Richard Hawtin could often be spotted at the Haywards Heath Golf Club sporting his favourite harlequin-patterned funky trousers, which earned him the nickname ‘Quin’. His golfing buddies are assured of a good turnout. The Club will likely not have seen anything like this modelling on its runways!

Players at the charity event in July will be challenged to don their funkiest, most colourful golf gear in Quin’s honour. A prize will be awarded to the player dressed the most luridly richly – Those daring to wear neutrals or monochrome may be fined!

Players can enter as singles or a pair and will be grouped into a four-ball team. Registration on the day opens at 8:30am with a coffee and bacon roll for some pre-game nourishment. A two-course meal will be provided once the rounds have finished.

The cost of the day is £95 per player, or £65 for members of Haywards Heath Golf Club.
