A History of giving

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a unique event on the DP World Tour which brings together a high class field of professional golfers with some of the most enthusiastic and famous amateurs from around the world.

There are many things which bind the professionals and amateurs together: love of golf, the remarkable camaraderie of a team championship, and the chance to play sport on a world stage.

But for all the golfers who tee up each year, the opportunity to do something significant to support those less fortunate than themselves and the chance to leave a positive legacy behind is just as important.

This powerful emotion has resulted in a history of giving which has characterised the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at all levels since its inception in 2001. Among the charitable causes which have benefited are:

  • Autism Speaks
  • Beefy’s Charity Foundation
  • Blood Brothers
  • Clarke & Botham Invitational
  • Dr Ernest L Ransome III Scholarship Trust
  • Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation
  • Ernie Els for Autism
  • European Disabled Golf Association
  • Families First St Andrews
  • Fife Athletic Club
  • Help for Heroes
  • Home Start – East Fife
  • Imibala
  • James Kingston Foundation

Hopefully funds will continue to grow in the future, and the Alfred Dunhill Links Foundation will be able to continue to support a range of charities that can do good in so many varied ways.
