For nearly 20-years, The Sir Bobby Robson Celebrity Golf Tournament has been bringing celebrities together in the Algarve to celebrate the life of my father and raise much needed funds for Refúgio Aboim Ascensão, a children’s charity based in Faro.

Last year, post Covid, the tournament returned stronger than ever, raising over €75,000, taking the total funds generated since its formation to over €1.3 million.

As my dad would have wanted, our work continues during 2023 and beyond, with dates for 2023 now agreed. The tournament will be held over two days: Friday 23rd June and Saturday 24th June.

Please see on this website more details about the golf, the venue, our gala dinner and children’s party; and the financial support we provide to the Refúgio.  Also, please see how you can get involved, either by entering a team of three players (who will be joined by a celebrity player) or by sponsoring the tournament or a prize at the tournament.

On behalf of myself and the Robson family, we thank you for your interest and support.

Mark Robson, December 2022.

“Every child has the right to be loved.”

The Refugio Aboim Ascensao benefits from from the funds raised by the tournament. It’s a home that, at any one time, is looking after 95 children. It is a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week operation. Its Director is Dr. Luis Villas-Boas. Together with his dedicated team, they help create a new home and new lives for children badly in need of a helping hand. Their philosophy is simple yet compelling: “Every child has a right to be loved”.
