Celebrity Golf Tournament & Gala Dinner
To honour Ian Fleming`s love of the game, the Ian Fleming Foundation is to host the James Bond Classic on 11 June 2001 at Stoke Park Club. It will be a celebrity golf tournament followed by a Gala Dinner. Both MGM and EON have lent their support to the event – the only official James Bond golf event in the world.
In August 1964, just hours before he was to be made captain of his favourite golf course, Ian Lancaster Fleming died. While James Bond was arguably his greatest creation, it was golf that was his greatest passion.
STOKE PARK CLUB
The event will be held at Stoke Park Club, the same golf course that played host to the legendary match between 007 and Goldfinger in the 1964 James Bond film “Goldfinger”. It is now one of the `Leading Hotels of the World` with a golf course to match. It is located just 30 minutes from Heathrow and 45 minutes from central London.
