Aaron James – Golf Days

Aaron is a category 1 single figure golfer who loves to play before bringing his own brand of humour to the day.

Not only can he do a comedy spot, he is in his element when hosting the whole thing, presenting the prizes and raising funds. The number of times he gets rebooked for a golf day shows what a safe pair of hands he is to have at your golf day.

He’s spoken at corporate golf days for Aston Martin, Porsche, Mercedes, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Vodaphone, Bosch and many more.

He’s hosted charity golf days for Variety Club, SPARKS, Cancer Research, Dreamflight and dozens more.

Aaron is a great choice for captains dinner having done so at clubs like Wentworth, Woburn, Loch Lomond and Gleneagles. And is also a favourite at Golf Unions and Captains’ Societies and has performed at golf days in Dubai, Portugal, Spain and Ireland.

I am so sorry I missed your departure on Friday, I can only put it down to too many diversions and perhaps too many shandies. I trust you enjoyed your day with us as we enjoyed your company on the course and throughout the festivities that followed. I have heard nothing but praise for your entertainment and the manner you conducted the proceedings. I am sure that more bookings will ensue.

Our charities have greatly benefited from your ‘performance’ on the night, I was amazed how you managed to coax out so much money in such a short time. The final reckoning has still to be determined exactly but I will let you know as soon as we have it.

It was a real pleasure for me to meet you and be able to relax on the night and watch a real professional at work. My heartfelt thanks for all you have contributed to the ’cause’.

Warmest regards

John Butcher - Captain 2019, Sonning Golf Club

Thank-you so much for putting on such a brilliant performance yesterday – the number of people who have written to say how much they enjoyed it is staggering…!  It was a pleasure to work with you and also enjoy your company around the lunch table. However, not only that, you really achieved some big numbers for the live auction and for that I am most grateful. It will be a day that will be remembered for a long time. Thank-you & trust you got back safely

All best wishes

Adrian Bourne (Captain), Bletchingley Golf Club

You were terrific on the day and the feedback from attendees has been really positive. I would like to secure a date with you for next year which I very much hope you will be able to make.”

“Back to the Golf Day and I wanted to pass on a huge vote of thanks for everything you did to make it such an enormous success. The “good vibes” in the room all evening were certainly encouraged by your hilarious asides and anecdotes, and the way you extracted money from our generous suppliers, clients and friends was a masterclass. We raised £10k for the charity which will make a phenomenal different to the lives of young people pre and post-transplant.
I will send you a copy of our Golf Day Newsletter in due course, but want you the know that we really appreciate your efforts on the day, and look forward to seeing you again in the future.”

“Just a short note to say thanks for a great evening last night. I have had nothing but positive comments “best Captains night in years” which was made by your great session.”
Robert Emmin - Captain, Burghley golf club
“On Saturday, 29th October 2016, I hosted our annual Gentleman’s Silver Trophy Presentation evening and had booked Aaron James as our guest speaker for the evening.

At the back of one’s mind, you hope that the guest speaker for these events will be good and therefore accepted by the 90 men in attendance at this annual golf club event.

I can assure everyone that with Aaron – you will have no need to worry!!
His delivery, his impressions and his funny stories & jokes had not been heard before and everyone commented that he was excellent entertainment for the evening.
I would not hesitate to recommend Aaron James for any after dinner speaking – he was truly brilliant!!”

Bob Grindley - Captain, Stourbridge golf club
“The dust has settled after my tournament and I still receive emails about how good your act was. It was truly hilarious and I just wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you for making the gala dinner. People in my circles will be talking about it for years.
I hope you get some business from us , well deserved, and if there is anything I can do to help “promote” you, please ask. Again, tremendous act and thanks”
Simon Hoye, Police Support - UK golf championship

“I just wanted to say thank you for a great night at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel Golf day. You were absolutely amazing and I have had so many compliments from the golfers saying you captured the atmosphere so well and everyone enjoyed your comedy !! We managed to raise over £5,800 for the willow and your skill at the auction certainly helped to secure such a great amount for the charity. We hope we can re-book you for next year!”
Adam Tarpening, Christchurch Harbour Hotel - golf day
“It was great to meet you last night. I wanted to say thanks very much for a super ‘set’ you had me and the rest of the audience in stitches. I had nothing but compliments from all of the other members and guests there, several said you were the best act they had seen at that type of event. I am happy to recommend you wholeheartedly to anybody looking for a funny, clean comedian/impersonator.”
Mike Grindell - Captain , Dyke Golf Club
“I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic performance on Saturday night here at Bearwood Lakes Golf Club. As mentioned, I have never seen you perform before and I thought it was brilliant. I have also had lots of comments back from our guests about how good they thought you were. You managed to pitch it exactly right for the audience and this really went towards creating a fantastic evening. It looks like we will have raised about £22,000 on the day, so a great effort for a self-contained Members Club Charity Day. Thank you once again from us all here at Bearwood Lakes and if there is ever anything I can help you with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
Carl Rutherford - MD, Bearwood Lakes golf club
“Just a quick note to thank you for all your help and support in organising Aaron to be our after dinner speaker last night. He was extremely well received, many people went out of their way so say that they hadn’t laughed so much in years! Of special note, I must say that the content of his act was exemplary and bearing in mind it was a men’s night, it would have been very easy to resort to somewhat “blue” content, and yet it was quite the contrary – I can’t even recall a single swear word. Thanks once again and I won’t hesitate in recommending Aaron to others running similar functions.”
Phil Wright - Captain, Surrey Downs golf club
“On behalf of everyone at SPARKS, we would like to extend our warmest thanks to you for providing an excellent comedy act at Peter Ebdon’s golf day at Collingtree Park. It was one of the funniest acts we have seen for a long while in what is a very hard room. We have had some fantastic reports on the day and we are confident that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Also thankyou for raising such an amazing amount in the auction and for your tremendous support of the charity.”
David Barker, SPARKS - charity golf day

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for entertaining us all at the Club last Friday for Dave Goldman’s Captains Dinner. The feedback I received from our Members was fantastic which meant that the event was a great success for Dave early on in his year of captaincy.
