A ‘free’ round as Telford Hotel hosts open day
Golfers will be able to explore the stunning golf course and quality facilities at one of Shropshire’s top four-star hotels, effectively for free, when the Telford Hotel & Golf Resort opens its doors at the end of May.
The resort is hosting an open day on Saturday, May 25, where golfers can enjoy a round of golf on its spectacular 18-hole championship-standard course – renowned for its beautiful tree-lined fairways and picturesque countryside views overlooking the Severn Valley and Ironbridge Gorge – for just £10.
Known as one of the premier golf destinations in Shropshire, the resort is encouraging people to check out the facilities, have a feel for the course and learn about the comprehensive list of benefits of becoming a member.
Attendees will be able to play the hotel’s 6,741-yard par-72 course between 9am and 11am, with a £10 shop voucher included in the price that can be used once they’ve finished their round.
Telford Hotel’s course has not only been acclaimed for its beautiful scenery, but also for being a perfect challenge. Designed by renowned architects John Harris and Brian Griffiths, there is just enough distance and water hazards to make it a difficult, yet enjoyable, loop. And with greens thoughtfully designed in the style of the home of the US Masters course, at Augusta, it makes it a very attractive destination for any golfer.
Located just a five-minute drive from the centre of Telford, Telford Central train station and junction four of the M54, the resort’s range of fantastic facilities – which also include luxury overnight accommodation, a spa and a 24-hour gym – are easily accessible for all.
Telford Hotel’s director of golf, Matt Robbins, said: “We welcome new faces here at the hotel and we’re always trying to promote our spectacular course to experienced golfers, but also to people who may not have played before – the social and health benefits of golf are huge and we want to encourage more people to get involved.
“This is why we’re opening our doors to give both experienced and beginner golfers the opportunity to explore the course and other facilities here at the resort. There’s really not many better places to play golf nearby and being a member of Telford Hotel & Golf Resort is very special – and we’re really looking forward to showing people why on May 25.”
Advance booking is essential, as playing a course of Telford’s quality for £10 – with £10 back to spend in the club shop – is sure to be very popular!”
