British adventurers drive 10,000 miles and build Turkmenistan's first-ever golf course.
The pair are taking part in the annual Mongol Rally charity drive and have amusingly called themselves Team Mongolf. The rally started on 18th July and will end in the Russian city of Ulan Ude on the 24th August. Along the way, Anthony and Patrick committed to playing a round of golf, per day, per country, but playing a round in Turkmenistan has proved a little more tricky because the country doesn’t have a course. Instead Patrick and Anthony have built one, right next to the famous ‘Gates of Hell’ landmark.
So far Team Mongolf has raised £25,000 to for its chosen charity, St George’s Ethiopia. Patirck says: “The work that the charity carries out is having a huge impact on the children at St George’s, and we felt that the more difficult our challenge, the more people will realise that this is not just about Team Mongolf having fun, but determination, grit, problem-solving, and achieving, ultimately, something even those taking part are not sure can be done.”
