England Golf Week tees off on Monday with a great celebration of the handicap game – and some outstanding opportunities for club players to win a trip to Florida or the chance to play with a Tour star.
Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire is staging Golf Week for the third time and playing host to seven national finals of individual and team competitions.
They include the men and women’s finals of the Bridgestone Chase Your Dream Trophy which will find the handicap golfers of the year – and much more.
The top nine players from each final will play in the pro-am of the Bridgestone Challenge – the English leg of the Challenge Tour – and the most successful team there will tee up with a top European Tour player in the pro-am of the British Masters, supported by Sky Sports.
The finalists include Hannah Golding, who was one of last year’s overall winners and played with Ryder Cup hero Nicolas Colsaerts at the British Masters, where she also met her idol Charley Hull.
There’s another great prize on offer for the winners and runners-up in the final of the Travelbag Team Championship. The eight players will book themselves a trip to the Travelbag Invitational on November 17-22, 2018 at Rosen Shingle Creek, Florida.
Other finals include the Senior Series, the Golf Captains’ tournament series, and the women’s Australian Spoons.
The youngsters will be represented in the final of the Junior Champion Club competition and the teams include three girls from Lymm Golf Club in Cheshire.
Freya Jackson, Sophie Mullarkey and McKenzie Gourlay got together through Girls Golf Rocks – the recruitment campaign run by England Golf and the Golf Foundation – and won the Cheshire qualifier for this tournament.
