London Golf Show offers £70,000 in prizes
Holidays to Bermuda and Sawgrass, plus a stunning Tesla Model S car worth more than £60,000 are all to be won at this month’s London Golf Show, which takes place at Glow, Bluewater, in Kent, from August 26-28.
The Model S is designed from the ground up to be the safest, most exhilarating sedan on the road. With unparalleled performance delivered through Tesla's unique, all-electric powertrain, Model S accelerates from 0 to 60mph in as little as three seconds. It also comes with autopilot capabilities designed to make motorway driving not only safer, but stress free.
At the end of each day, in the Tesla hole-in-one challenge, the 10 people nearest-the-pin on the simulator competition will return to attempt to achieve a hole-in-one on a different hole. Ace it … and they walk away with a £60,000 car.
The four-night Bermuda holiday, worth more than £4,000, is up for grabs on the show’s ever-popular long-putt competition and is supplied by the Bermuda Tourism Authority. Anybody holing out on the 30-metre putt will be entered into a draw with one winner being drawn at random after the final putt on the last day of the show.
The prize comprises round-trip flights for two to Bermuda from Gatwick Airport, accommodation at the stunning Elbow Beach Resort, and a round of golf at each of Port Royal, Tucker’s Point and Turtle Hill.
The Hole In One Club is also offering a seven-night trip to TPC Sawgrass – home of the PGA Tour’s Players Championship – for the first 12 people to score an ace on the hole-in-one simulator. Should there be more than 12, those golfers will enjoy an all-expenses paid trip to Celtic Manor, in Wales, to play for their Sawgrass spots.
And, in advance of the show itself, anybody can enter a Facebook competition to win a wealth of golfing goodies worth £600, courtesy of Cobra: a custom-fitted King F6 driver; a King wedge; stand bag; a King cap; belt; a lesson with show host Mark Crossfield.; and a lesson on the ground-breaking Robo Golf Pro at FairWeather Golf, in Camberley. Anybody without a Facebook account can enter at the London Golf Show website.
Elsewhere at the show, Titleist has custom-fitted sets of Vokey wedges and sleeves of Pro V1 balls to be won at the chipping area, while Callaway will be giving away sleeves of balls to visitors who stop show hosts Crossfield and Matt ‘Coach’ Lockey for a selfie photo.
Anybody attending the show will be in profit almost immediately, with every visitor able to claim at least nine free rounds of golf. Each of nine golf clubs – The Addington, Croydon; Bletchingly, Surrey; Chart Hills, Biddenden, Kent; Cherry Lodge, Biggin Hill; Farleigh GC, Selsdon, Surrey; Surrey National, near Coulsdon; Weald of Kent, in Headcorn; Westerham, Kent; and Woldingham, near Whyteleafe – will give a free green fee to every visitor to their stand, in a package worth at least £300.
With myriad interactive stands – including nearest-the-pin, long-drive and long-putt contests; free PGA tuition; a massive indoor driving range featuring the majority of golf’s best-known club brands; custom fitting; club testing; trick-shot displays; simulators; the latest golf gadgets; extensive retail; and the opportunity to win everything from a packet of tees to an exotic golf holiday, it is the ultimate day out for any golf enthusiast.
The show will be hosted by Golf Juice presenter and YouTube sensation Crossfield, whose golf coaching videos have received more than 90 million views. He will be accompanied by fellow PGA professional Lockey, who also enjoys a substantial following on social media, where he’s better known as ‘Coach’ Lockey. The duo often work together to produce videos and will be reunited once more to entertain visitors at the show.
