We would like to thank other event sponsors Performance 54, Titleist, Barclays Bank, former Captain Gary McNish and the team at St Georges Hill Golf Club, who helped deliver a fantastic event last year enjoyed by all and the members for enabling such a significant donation to our local charity. This SGH club has raised a significant total of circa £600,000 for Princess Alice Hospice to date.
Last year’s Nelson Trophy was awarded to Conor Coles, grandson of English champion golfer Neil Chapman Coles MBE, who led the pack with an excellent score of 66. Coles’ grandfather, who was present on the day, had a successful career in European Tour golf, winning 29 tournaments between 1956 and 1982. After reaching 50, he won 14 Seniors Tour tournaments between 1985 and 2002, winning his final European Seniors Tour event at the
age of 67.
Coles closed out his round with a string of birdies to clinch the Nelson Trophy victory,defeating 24 other competitive pros, including Ryder Cup player David Howell and European Tour winner James Morrison. Ladies European Tour player Lauren Taylor won the team event, guest Dan Scoble, Andrew Cooke and John McGuffie.
❝We at Princess Alice Hospice are so grateful for the funds that The Nelson Trophy raised for us last year. We appreciate the generosity and warmth of all who took part and the huge effort put into organising the day by St George’s Hill Golf Club and Your Golf Travel. It was wonderful to see everyone taking part in such an enjoyable day and raising such significant funds for the Hospice.❞
Claire Woodward, Community Partnerships and Events Lead
❝My family has a great affinity with the hospice as my grandmother passed away there and my late father raised funds for the hospice. The Nelson Trophy is always a wonderful day with some fantastic pros playing the game in the right spirit. We hope to raise some good funds again in 2022.❞

❝We always look forward to this wonderful annual event that supports an amazing charity. The Princess Alice Hospice is a great cause and one that is close to so many of our hearts at the Club. We know it will be another fantastic event and look forward to welcoming all who take part.❞

Princess Alice Hospice delivers compassionate care to an area covering 600 square miles - in Surrey, SW London and Middlesex, with a population of around 1 million people and to around 800 people at any one time.
Our nurses and doctors cared for over 2,727 patients in their own homes in 2019/20. (The mileage driven by our Hospice at Home service last year is equivalent to circumnavigating the globe seven times)
Last year it cost over £10 million to run Princess Alice Hospice, and within only around 24% funding from the NHS, we have tough targets to reach. Our team of specialists are experts in palliative and end of life care.
But we believe that hospice care is for living, so our holistic approach means we focus on helping people live the rest of their days well, however long or short they may be.
We are a community of compassion and base our care around the needs and wants of each individual, whether managing their symptoms or supporting their physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs and to be there for their families too.
