Following the sad death, in 2014, of football legend Sir Tom Finney, Preston Golf Club holds the, very successful, Sir Tom Finney Memorial Open Golf Tournament each year. The winners receive the Sir Tom Finney Memorial Trophy.
The event, now in its sixth year, has established itself as a popular annual competition and attracts teams from both inside and outside our club. Over recent years in excess of £18k has been raised to support the SPACE Centre, one of Sir Toms favourite charities.
Sir Tom and his family have a long and continuing association with Preston Golf Club. When the event was discussed with the family they readily agreed to its creation as an annual event in memory of Sir Tom.
It's already becoming one of the ‘must play’ events in the local golfing calendar plans are already in place with PNE and The SPACE centre to present this event with an extended program of after golf entertainment.
Sir Toms Family nominated The SPACE Centre as the recipient charity following Sir Toms long and generous association with them.
The SPACE Centre is unique. Established in 1993, it is the largest multi-sensory environment in the United Kingdom for people with special needs.
