00-HEAVEN FOR BOND FANS
Official James Bond Golf Day set to take place at Stoke Park Golf Club this summer
STOKE PARK, the luxury five-star hotel, spa and country club in Buckinghamshire is getting ready to leave golfers shaken not stirred as the host of the official James Bond Golf Day.
As the setting for arguably the most iconic golf battle in cinematic history between
Sean Connery’s James Bond, and Gert Fröbe’s Goldfinger, Stoke Park has partnered with EON Productions to host the event with profits from the day donated to the charity Spinal Research.
Like Bond and Goldfinger, golfers will have the opportunity to compete on Stoke Park’s legendary championship course, indulge on award-winning head chef Chris Wheeler’s exquisite cuisine, and dance into the night with live music.
Stuart Collier, director of golf at Stoke Park, explained: “Next year will be 50 years since Goldfinger was released in the cinemas and, at Stoke Park, we are very proud of our Bond heritage. We have had two Bond films shot here and, in 1997, scenes from Tomorrow Never Dies were also filmed in our ballroom.
“The idea behind the golf day was to celebrate that heritage, and to create something truly unique and authentic.”
Jonathan Miall, the chief executive of Spinal Research, added: “Spinal Research is the UK’s leading and most influential spinal cord repair charity. We’re here to give hope to the 50,000 people living with a spinal cord injury in the UK and Ireland by supporting research around the world to develop reliable treatments for paralysis caused by a broken neck or back.
“Over the last few years we have taken significant steps forward and now stand on the brink of clinical trials involving paralysed volunteers. “We’re only able to progress this vital work thanks to the fundraising efforts of our supporters and are immensely grateful to Stoke Park for hosting the James Bond Golf Day.”
