Norton Barrie Golf Day is in its 10th year now and is growing stronger and stronger year on year. It was started by Blake Norton in June 2009 after the unfortunate passing of his father Barry Norton in August 2008. Barry was the founder of Norton Barrie and loved his golf. Blake felt it was the best way to celebrate his memory and raise money for The Christie, a charity that helped and supported Barry throughout his battle with cancer.
Since 2009 the event has raised over £70,000 for The Christie and has been generously supported by sponsors that have included; Hugo Boss, Paddy Power, Jaguar, Statstone Ferrari, J.Lindeburg, Lyle & Scott.
The Norton Barrie Classic has also welcomed many familiar faces from television and sport with Sir Alex Ferguson, Andy Cole, Graham Souness, Frank Stapleton, Max George & Alan Halsall all taking part over the years. This star studded line-up and the electric atmosphere created on the day has regularly attracted the attention of the media with SKY SPORTS NEWS and OK Magazine providing coverage of past events.
