Telford Pro-Am set for August
A £1,000 first prize is up for grabs at the Telford Golf Club pro-am, supported by Budgen Motors, when it is played on August 2.
Club officials expect a field of 40 teams – comprising three amateurs and one professional – with some exciting prizes for amateurs too, including golf breaks at other QHotels’ resorts.
Entry costs just £180 per team – £50 per amateur and £30 for the professional – which includes 18 holes of tournament golf with a professional, on-course refreshments, a post-round meal and a fantastic prize table.
There are already some high-profile names entered to play, with PGA regional winners and Challenge Tour players all trying to claim the first prize.
Telford’s head of golf, Matt Robbins, said: “We are really looking forward to this event, which promises to be very sociable, yet highly competitive. We are grateful to Budgen Motors for putting up the prize money which we believe will make the professionals’ element of the event quite interesting … it always is competitive with professionals!”
Managed by RBH, the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, Telford Hotel’s wonderfully picturesque course measures 6,741 yards along tree-lined fairways, through open greens and over strategic water hazards.
The course’s signature hole is the eighth, a 382-yard, par-four which requires the drive to be landed to perfection to miss two fairway bunkers, before negotiating a pond with a beautiful mature oak tree … all placed to make the approach shot that little bit more interesting.
As the largest golf resort operator in the UK, RBH manages nine championship and tournament golf courses across the UK, hosting events from the European Tour, European Seniors Tour, Ladies European Tour and the PGA.
The Telford Golf Club pro-am, supported by Budgen Motors, takes place on Thursday, August 2. To book a place in the event, call 01952 422964, or email email@example.com.
