The Sir Bobby Robson Celebrity Golf Classic 2019

The Sir Bobby Robson Celebrity Golf Classic has been run annually for fifteen years at the request of Lady Elsie Robson and her family. The tournament was started by Sir Bobby in 2004 to raise money for a homeless children's charity the Refugio Aboim Ascensão, chosen by Sir Bobby and Lady Elsie, which is based in Faro.


Since 2004, over 1,000,000 Euros have been raised on behalf of Sir Bobby and Lady Elsie to help the charity continue the great work they do for homeless babies and children aged under six who have been abandoned and in some cases abused. Since Sir Bobby's death in July 2009 the tournament has continued with Lady Elsie's blessing with two principal objectives:

Firstly, to Celebrate Bobby's life both on and off the pitch, to remember what he brought to football both in the UK and in continental Europe having become one of the most successful British managers in Europe.

Secondly, because Sir Bobby would have wanted to keep raising valuable funds for the Charity and help those Children so less fortunate than our own.
