Posted by: Help For Heroes | Categories: General

The Battle Back Golf Team are celebrating a victorious return to the UK having won the Capt Pietsch Trophy in Florida!

The Courage Cup for the Captain Pietsch Trophy is the pinnacle event in the Battle Back Golf calendar. Programmed at the end of the season to inspire all golfers to participate and develop their game through the UK based fixtures; selection is very competitive. The event is played annually between the US and UK in a Ryder Cup style tournament and is very competitive, yet always played in the best spirit which forges friendships for life.

Going into the 2015 event the British team were the current holders having won the previous year in Walton Heath Golf Club by 15½ to 4½. This year's tournament resulted in another huge win for the team by 16½ to 3½!

While a fantastic result for the team, the whole event was a huge bonding experience for ou r wounded and both teams celebrated together on the final hole. A formal evening dinner with speeches brought the event to a celebratory close.

Help for Heroes are thrilled to have been able to support Battle Back Golf with funding for this event to enable the physical, psychological and social benefits for those who took part in the tournament.

Barney Noble, Chairman of BB Golf says: "As always we at Battle Back Golf rely on Help for Heroes to support this trip and many other events. Many thanks for your donation and may this partnership flourish."
