Damon Hill & Michael Caines Golf Day for Down Syndrome Charities

Mar 29, 2019 | Jenni Ashford

Exeter Golf and Country Club is hosting the 2019 Down Syndrome Charities Golf Day.

The Down Syndrome Charities Golf Day with Damon Hill and Michael Caines is coming to Exeter Golf and Country Club this autumn.

Former F1 champion, Damon Hill OBE and Michael Caines MBE, will be jointly hosting a day of golf and an evening dinner for the Down’s Syndrome Association and Down Syndrome International at the England Golf award-winning golf course on Friday 4th October 2019.

Damon (who has a son with Down syndrome) and Michael, are both patrons of the charities, who support people with Down syndrome, their families, carers and professionals, throughout the world.

The day will consist of 18 holes of golf with competitions, followed by a 4-course evening dinner, entertainment, raffle and charity auction. The dinner will be created and prepared by Exeter Golf and Country Club head chef, Adam Little, and Michael Caines MBE.

The charities are being supported by Lympstone Manor and other companies with auction lots. Lympstone Manor is donating an overnight stay for two with dinner. Exeter Golf and Country Club is offering three lots including a four-ball golf day with lunch, a full leisure membership for rackets, fitness and swimming, and an ‘Ultimate Spa Retreat’  at Wear Park Spa .

Chris Jones, General Manager of Exeter Golf and Country Club said, “It’s an honour to host this high profile and hugely worthwhile event. The Down syndrome charities improve the lives of so many children and adults with Down syndrome along with providing invaluable support to parents and carers. We always enjoy partnering with Michael for the 7 Chefs Dinner and South West Chef of the Year Award, and so we’re delighted to have been chosen as the golf venue for this year’s golf day.”
