Champagne celebrations at Celebrity Cup
4th – 6th July 2014
Thousands of golf fans and celebrity spotters were treated to some thrilling sporting action and entertaining interaction with the galleries as the Celtic Manor Resort hosted the Celebrity Cup in glorious sunshine from July 4-6.
Stars of showbiz and entertainment competing in the golf tournament included TV personality Rob Brydon,singers Ronan Keating and Brian McFadden, Brendan O'Carroll of Mrs Brown's Boys, actors Bradley Walsh, Dougray Scott and Philip Glenister, and rugby legends Gareth Edwards and Gavin Hastings.
Another rugby star, Mike Tindall, captained England to victory and champagne celebrations after beating Scotland in the final, with Wales finishing third and Ireland fourth.
Brendan O’Carroll said: “Apart from raising money for the charities, the most important thing was not the golf but entertaining the people who came out to see us. I just hope they’ve had as good a time as we have. I play in charity golf events all over the world and this has been the best organised event and the warmest welcome I’ve ever had.”
More than £40,000 was raised at a glittering gala dinner charity auction for the Caron Keating Foundation and the Play Golf Help Save Lives defibrillator campaign, founded by former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher who was the Celebrity Cup’s golf ambassador and mentor to the star players.
As well as two days packed full of golfing action, the spectators were treated to celebrity golf challenges and entertaining tented village Q&A sessions with the likes of Welsh rugby star George North and Jesse Metcalfe, the Dallas and Desperate Housewives heartthrob.
