Golfing legend Seve Ballesteros has put out a call to club golfers across the UK to help his foundation beat brain cancer.

He wants them to get their clubs to take part in the National Golf Club Challenge 2011 set to take place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th 0f July.

The challenge will help raise much needed funds for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, which is working together with Cancer Research UK to fund lifesaving research into brain cancer.

Hundreds of golf clubs and thousands of golfers are expected to come together on the same weekend to host their own fundraising stableford competitions.

The top scoring clubs from across the UK will then be invited to compete in the national final in September at The Shire London – the only Seve Ballesteros designed golf course in the UK.

Ballesteros, who has had surgery for a malignant brain tumor following his collapse at Madrid Airport in October 2008, said: “By signing up for the Challenge, clubs all over the UK can enjoy the sport while raising money for brain cancer research.”

“There are more than five million golfers in the UK and if just a small proportion of those got involved, we’d be well on our way to reaching our target and making a real impact on the lives of people like me who have been diagnosed with brain cancer.”

The challenge aims to help raise vital funds for research into cancer of the brain which affects around 8,000 people in the UK each year.

Justin Rose, one of England’s leading professional golfers, said: “Please show your support for the great man and sign up for the National Golf Club Challenge and help the Seve Ballesteros Foundation and raise as much money as possible for brain cancer research.”
