Thursday 29th June - Mottram Hall

We intend to make the  BAFSA Challenge Day 2017 an even more entertaining event than last year and be assured, it will mirror the emphatic successes of 2015 and 2016.

Golfers and Contenders will face new challenges and old favourites when they meet on Thursday 29th June in the beautifully landscaped surroungings of Mottram Hall.

The Golf Day fee is an inclusive £80 per golfer. To enter yourself, your colleagues and clients, in the 2017 BAFSA Golf Day click here

Golfers playing for a myriad of trophies and prizes will tee-off from 0700 following bacon sandwiches and strong coffee in the club house. After playing 18 holes on the Mottram Hall Championship Golf course, all golfers will join Challenge teams for the afternoon.

Team spirit is the order of the day along with fun and frivolity.

The BAFSA Challenge Day will see up to 10 teams competing in seven disciplines - often head to head with opponents: 

* Archery
* Laser Clay Pigeon
* Segway
* Blindfold Human Sheep Herding ... back by popular request
* Full Size Table Football tournament... throughout the afternoon
* Corn Hole
* Quiz time

All BAFSA members are invited to compete in the 2017 BAFSA Challenge Day.  

There is no entry fee so book your place and those of your colleagues now by emailing

Plan to join the day from 1130 leaving plenty of time for team bonding, tactics and reviewing the competition.

Of course, if entertainment rather than exercise is what you seek, come and cheer the teams on and enjoy a day of getting to know the hidden talents and sporting prowess of your fellow BAFSA members.

We welcome individuals, couples and Members' guests to enter the BAFSA Challenge Day.

Teams will be created on the day unless sponsors advise otherwise.

There is no entry fee.

The BAFSA Challenge Day including all activities, refreshments, the evening barbecue and prize-giving is free for everyone because of the incredible support we get from sponsorship by BAFSA members.
