Volvo is to become the title sponsor of the National Golf Club Challenge (NGCC) charity event, with the aim of uniting golfers throughout the UK in raising a million pounds for the Help for Heroes charity.

The Volvo NGCC will sit alongside the well established Volvo in Golf programme which currently includes the Volvo Amateur Golf Tour, Volvo World Golf Challenge and the Volvo Matchplay Championship.

Thousands of golfers from golf clubs around the UK will compete in the Volvo NGCC by playing in their local Help for Heroes charity fundraiser on June 4-5, 2011. The four top scoring clubs – from the Men’s and Ladies section – will then go forward to the final at Turnberry in October.

The leading individual player in the Volvo NGCC Final at Turnberry will qualify to play in the Volvo World Golf Challenge Final in January 2012.

Volvo in Golf is the largest series of events for amateur golfers in the UK and in 2011 over 40,000 golfers will participate in the various events.
