According to Shropshire Star, JUDAS PRIEST guitarist K.K. Downing will host a fundraising day for The Lord's Taverners charity at his golf course in Bridgnorth.
The Lord's Taverners Golf Day 2009 will be launched this afternoon at Downing's home at Astbury Hall, Chelmarsh, near Bridgnorth, United Kingdom.
Neal Radford, former England and Worcestershire county cricketer, who is a committee member of The Lord's Taverners in the West Midlands, will be at the launch.
The charity provides sporting opportunities for disadvantaged and disabled young people.
According to BirminghamPost.net, Downing bought Astbury Hall, five miles outside Bridgnorth, in the most beautiful Shropshire countryside you could imagine.
That was in 1985 and the 300-acre estate supported a large herd of prime milking cows.
But whenever K.K.'s eyes roved the rolling land outside his lounge window he dreamed of creating a golf course of a quality to match his own meticulous standards.
"I've played golf all over the world on some of the best golf courses and I want a course to match those," he said.
"I'm not after the £20-a-day-including-lunch market. It takes a lot of money, and I mean a lot of money, to provide a great golf course but as long as I can attract enough money to pay for it I'll be happy."
"I'm not cutting corners. I'm aiming at golfers who are passionate about the game and appreciate five-star golf and a five-star clubhouse."
