The first 2 recipients, Bella and Josh, have continued to make huge progress, with Bella receiving a 7 year scholarship from Wentworth, and currently playing off a handicap of 9(Initially 24).

Josh has now joined Donnington Grove and is now part of their first team playing off a handicap of 5, having come to the first junior golf day off a handicap of 18.

Foundation Recipient Wins Wentworth Scholarship

09/05/2012

Eleven-year-old Bella Cordwell, one of the Foundation's first scholarship recipients, has won a prestigious scholarship with Wentworth Golf Club in Virginia Water, Surrey.

Wentworth Golf Club, most famous for the BMW PGA Championship, the HSBC World Matchplay and the Wentworth Senior Masters, has awarded Bella a seven year scholarship that includes membership of the illustrious golf club, coaching support and an unlimited supply of practice balls. 

Bella's scholarship is a fantastic opportunity for her to progress her golf. Established in 1926, Wentworth Golf Club has three 18-hole courses, a 9-hole course and championship quality practice facilities. 

On hearing the news of her success, Bella was 'ecstatic'. She said, 'I really want to be a professional golfer when I am older, so this is a great opportunity for me to achieve this.'

Regarding the support she has received from the Adam Clayton Golf Foundation, Bella said, 'I think that the Adam Clayton Golf Foundation really helped me by improving my swing, therefore improving my game entirely. Also, I knew what my goals were, so I could work towards them.'

The Adam Clayton Golf Foundation is proud to have contributed to Bella's golfing journey and we wish her every success with her scholarship at Wentworth.

Changing Peoples Lives - Adam's Legacy

31/10/2011

The first recipients of the foundation flew out to the Pine Cliffs resort on the 16 October,ironically the 3rd anniversary of Adam's death. Bella Cordwell, 11, a member of East Berks Golf Club,and Josh Wallin, 15, who plays at Newbury Racecourse had a weeks academy coaching with Ian Godleman, Adam's coach for many years, and Lynn Brooky, a Ladies European tour player and the New Zealand No 1 player.

Each day they had individual coaching, a round of golf, and on 2 days had a coaching round with Lynn. In addition they had their swings analysed and videoed, as well as having access to free range balls all week. Bella and Josh worked extremely hard all week and benefitted from expert tuition from one of the best coaches in Europe.You can hear their individual interviews together with an interview from Adam's dad Chris, who gives an indepth interview into the aims of the foundation and the plans for moving the foundation forward by giving opportunities to more young golfers.

It is hoped that next October even more youngsters will go to Pine Cliffs to have a weeks academy coaching and enjoy the facilities at this wonderful resort. A date will shortly be fixed for the next Adam Clayton Memorial Golf Day in May or June next year to raise money for the foundation.

25th Birthday Golf Day, Donnington Valley

13/12/2009

On the 13th December 2009 a group of Adams best friends and family got together to commemorate Adams 25th birthday. A golf day was organised at Donnington Valley Golf Club in the form of a Texas Scramble, in which 9 teams of 4 competed on a fun day to remember Adam. The level of golfing abilities varied from professionals to happy hackers.

After the golf, where many golfers finished in the dark, food was provided by the club, and we were joined by many of his closest friends to celebrate Adams birthday.

This was the second golf day for Adam in 2009,the first being a memorial Golf Day in May.

The Adam Clayton Golf Foundation is now officially launched and fundraising events will be held in 2010 to raise money for the foundation. There will be a Golf Day in the Algarve in late March and another in May at either Donnington Grove or Valley.

The Golf Day on the 13th December was a fitting Fun Day where we could all be together again and remember Adam. This was the 2nd year this event has been held and it is hoped that it will happen for many years to come.

Adam Clayton Golf Foundation Classic

05/03/2009

The Adam Clayton Golf Foundation Classic will have it's first annual event at the Sheraton Algarve, Pine Cliffs on 13th October 2009.

The Sheraton Algarve ,Pine Cliffs was Adam's second home and he spent countless hours there working on his golf game. Pine Cliffs is a fabulous five Star resort with great practice facilities and a "unique" coastal nine hole golf course.

The idea of the day will be to raise money for Adam's golf Foundation to start helping young needy golfers and giving them that chance to learn and improve as Adam did.
