SOUTH London golfers have responded in their droves to a call by Addington Court Golf Centre for unwanted golf bags and clubs. And with almost three months left for golfers to donate, the club's summer 2014 'amnesty' on old golf equipment is off to a flying start. The club is taking part in a national scheme to liberate abandoned golf bags and clubs from lofts, garages and sheds, for redistribution worldwide by golfing charity The Golf Trust. So far, more than 50 golf bags and over 300 golf clubs have been donated in the pro shop at the popular Croydon golf club, in just three weeks. "Most golfers have a couple of spare bags and clubs gathering dust somewhere" said Cameron McKillop, Addington Court GC general manager. "If that sounds like you, then bring it all in and we guarantee that your old golf bag and clubs will make somebody, somewhere in the world, very happy!". The Golf Trust is sending all donated items to disabled golf charities and inner-city projects in the UK, and to golf outreach schemes in Grenada, India and Romania. There's a trip to Grenada to see the bags being given to local communities in store for one lucky participant in the Amnesty, with a prize draw to take place in October 2014. Anyone with a spare golf bag or golf clubs can simply walk into the Addington Court GC professional's shop and donate, any time up until Sunday, September 28.
