PADI Golf Day Supports Project AWARE

PADI Golf DayLike divers everywhere, members of the scuba industry like to show their support for the oceans that we are all privileged to visit and each year they get together to announce their support at the PADI Golf Day.

This year is no exception, and on Monday, 30 July, representatives of the diving industry will be getting together to meet, network and also raise funds for the Project AWARE Foundation.

Organized by PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa, the PADI Golf Day takes place at Shendish Manor, in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire and is attended by PADI Dive Centers and Resorts, PADI Professional Members, manufacturers, diving tour operators, representatives from diving magazines and industry stakeholders.

The PADI Golf Day has taken place each year for more than 10 years and has resulted in valuable additional funds for the charity.

It's a friendly day, starting off with coffee and bacon rolls followed by a round of golf and then plenty of fun at the evening dinner including an auction and raffle.

The event relies on generous contributions from colleagues and friends in the industry, and this year's headline prize for the fundraising auction has been kindly donated by Longwood Holidays.

The lucky winning bidder will enjoy a stunning trip for two people to the beautiful resort of El Gouna on the Red Sea coast and it includes:

Flights from London Gatwick to Hurghada

  • Return Transfers
  • 7 nights accommodation at the Movenpick Resort in El Gouna 
  • Bed & Breakfast
  •  3 x 18 Holes on the Championship 18 hole golf course
  • 3 Days Diving (6 Boat Dives) with Emperor Divers


More information on the resort and Longwood's destinations can be found at

All proceeds from the event are donated to the Project AWARE Foundation to assist in their work to combat the issues of Marine Debris and Sharks in Peril.
