    By daniel on 2002-03-14

    We've just received these details about the 2002 James Bond Celebrity Golf Classic which will be held at Stoke Park Club, where scenes of Goldfinger and Tomorrow Never Dies were filmed.


    The Ian Fleming Foundation is delighted to announce the James Bond Celebrity Golf Classic and Gala Dinner will take place on Friday 28th June at the prestigious Stoke Park Club.

    2002 is an extra special year for this official and now famous annual James Bond Golfing event, as it marks the 40th Anniversary of the first James Bond film and is also the year of the 20th Bond film – 'Die Another Day'. The 2002 James Bond Celebrity Golf Classic is supporting Variety Club of Great Britain which also commemorates a 40th Anniversary this year and will raise funds for 2 Sunshine Coaches in the tournament's name. The invaluable Sunshine Coach programme was launched in 1962 and has purchased over 4,000 coaches for sick, disadvantaged or disabled children.

    Whether you are a golfer, would like to enjoy a day out at this amazing event or are simply a Bond enthusiast who would enjoy the Gala Dinner and entertainment – this will be a superb occasion. Stoke Park has a unique history with the Bond movies and the famous golf sequence in Goldfinger was filmed at the Club.

    This is the only official Golf event word-wide which is officially recognised by Eon Productions, the makers of the Bond films and it is part of the 40th Anniversary James Bond Celebrations and will honour the launch of the 20th Bond film. Stoke Park is just 10 minutes from Pinewood Studios, where Barbara Brocolli, Michael Wilson and the production team are currently filming Die Another Day with Pierce Brosnan, Judy Dench, Halle Berry and John Cleese – to name but a few.

    This exciting day will commence at 10.45am with brunch, followed by a shotgun start at 1.00pm. From 6.30pm guests are invited to a champagne reception, followed by a superb black tie gala dinner, dancing, casino, charity auction and after dinner entertainment.

    Each golf team will consist of 4 players with the opportunity of each team playing with a celebrity golfer. Stars from Bond movies and a host of other celebrity names will also be attending the Gala Dinner. Golfing partners or non-golfers can also participate in the day's activities with special Golf or Tennis schools or beauty treatments and tea.

    There are a number of sponsorship and promotional opportunities available and we have tailored packages for the day's golfing event and evening activities. These vary from overall sponsorship of the whole event and sponsorship of a golf hole, to advertisements in the official event brochure and donations of auction prizes.

    We can also offer excellent hotel accommodation at the Golf Club on a first come first served basis for the 28th June. Stoke Park is located just 40 minutes from Central London and 15 minutes from Heathrow.
