Swinging the clubs for charity

Euro Meat Golf Trophy

GERMANY, Boppard. From 9 to 11 July 2017, the 14th Euro Meat Golf Trophy will take place in Boppard. Butchers devoted to playing golf will compete in eight categories. The proceeds will be donated to charity.

The venue of the popular golf tournament this year is the Jakobsberg Hotel & Golfresort in Boppard, Rhineland-Palatinate.  The participants from Germany, Austria and Switzerland will compete with each other in eight categories. These include an introductory course for golf newcomers as well as the coveted prize for the best butcher.

While one or the other participant may be focusing on the contest, the event is again entirely committed to a good cause: The proceeds will be donated to charitable organizations dedicated to the welfare of children. “We support projects helping ill and disadvantaged children to give them a future. We would like to make a contribution here,” says Hermann Schalk, chairman of the association “Sport für einen guten Zweck” (sports for a good cause) and organizer of the Euro Meat Golf Trophy.
