BLACK Cats fans can tee off alongside head coach Gus Poyet and a host of stars past and present on the club’s annual VIP golf day.

 Held on Wednesday, April 22, at the Rockcliffe Hall Hotel, the day will see guests welcomed with breakfast rolls in The Clubhouse from 10.30am, with welcome packs and buggies available from 9am.

 Before taking to the course, teams will compete in four ball shotgun at noon. Each team will be joined by a current club star, a club legend or a member of the club’s backroom staff.

 Sunderland AFC’s star golfer Lee Cattermole said: “The golf day is a really enjoyable event for all the lads as it offers us the opportunity to mix with fans in a relaxed environment.

 “It often gets quite competitive so it should be a great day for all involved.”

 There are competitions for nearest the pin, the longest drive and for the best and worst performers on the day and the chance to win a spanking new Mercedes Benz by hitting a hole-in-one on the fifth tee.

 The day is priced at £1,000 (+VAT) for a team of four, including all course fees, breakfast, drinks reception and dinner.

 Places are limited and can be booked by ringing on 0871 911 1555, or e-mailing
