Jeremy Robert Feakes
Person Male Born 21/6/1972 Died 27/2/2007
Designer, entrepreneur and founder of the Urban Golf Tournament. Urban Golf seems to be exactly what you'd imagine it might be and has been played in the East End, Siena, Hong Kong, Canada and Venezuela. Greens were circles of carpet on the street, holes were open water gullies with a flagpole sticking out. Some yellow stencilled 'next tee' signs can still, in 2007,be seen around the streets of the East End.
Feakes died, aged 34 years, on 27 February 2007 after a fall onto concrete at his studio in Hoxton and his obituary in The Guardian newspaper gives much information about the man.
Electoral registers in 2004 & 2004 show him listed at Jeremy Feakes & William Kavanagh, Unit 20, 2-4 Orsman Road, London, N1 5FB. The 2005 register shows him at Michael Ginn Associated Unit 1, 2-4 Orsman Road, London, N1 5QJ and in 2006 & 2007 at 24 Orsman Road, London, N1 5QJ.
