Players at Tynemouth Golf Club are in for a spooky surprise on Friday the 13th.

Meadow Well Estate’s community development charity, The Cedarwood Trust, is encouraging people to make a real difference to their local community.

The first zombie-themed golf day is taking place to raise much-needed funds for the trust and its various projects, and local businesses and golfers are being encouraged to help.

As well as a prize for the best dressed zombie, the Trust will be giving out prizes for the winning golfers, a £20,000 Volvo is up for grabs for a hole-in-one at hole 11 and there are also spot prizes during the day.

The event takes place on the afternoon of Friday, May 13.

Entry fees are £200 for a team of four, which includes refreshments and a buffet meal to finish.

CEO of the Trust Phil McGrath is looking forward to the event. “It’s a great excuse to come along and support the work we are doing on the estate whether you dress up as a zombie or not.

“I’m sure it’ll be a real Thriller.”
