Fun competition celebrates success of golf in the parks – The inaugural Woodthorpe Open!
A fun golf competition for all will be held this month to celebrate the success of the summer’s free Get into golf opportunities in Nottingham parks.
The Woodthorpe Open will take place at the Woodthorpe Grange Park pitch and putt course on Sunday 22 October. It’s open to all and costs just £7.50 per person, including golf, breakfast and coffee and prizes for all.
Arrival time is 10.30am, with everyone teeing off in fours at the same time, 11.30am, on different holes.
The fun event marks the end of the summer’s Get into golf drop-in sessions which offered all-comers the chance to try the sport with the help of activator Nyle Challinor.
This is the second year England Golf and Nottingham City Council have teamed up to take golf into an informal setting as part of the ParkLives programme.
It is part of England Golf’s Get into golf campaign, which offers great value coaching opportunities, and its wider strategy to get more people playing golf more often. Visit www.getintogolf.org for more information.
Local golf clubs which are keen to get involved with the project and to encourage new beginners should contact Emily Cheshire, England Golf’s Club Support Officer for Nottinghamshire: [email protected]englandgolf.org
