It’s time for Golf Week – England Golf’s annual celebration of the handicap game for men, women and juniors
Over 500 club golfers from all over the country will gather at Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire next week for the finals of a host of team and individual events.
The five-day festival of golf runs from Monday, August 8 to Friday, August 12 and includes the finals of the Club Team Championship, the England Golf Captains’ tournament series, the women’s Grand Medal Final, the Junior Champion Club tournament, and the men’s Gold Medal Final.
In addition, England Golf and Your Golf Travel ambassador Charley Hull will be at Golf Week on Tuesday for a Lady Captains’ event, which includes a Q&A, clinic and golf on the Blue course.
Other events during the week include a competition for teams of county presidents and secretaries and a Rules school.
Golf Week was held for the first time last year to highlight the grassroots game and was a huge success. It gave the full championship experience to club golfers who had qualified for the finals, many of whom were also entertained at gala dinners.
England Golf championship director James Crampton said: “We were absolutely delighted by the feedback we received. Players told us that they enjoyed the sense of occasion and the challenge of the three excellent golf courses at Frilford Heath.
“We are really looking forward to our second Golf Week and the opportunity to share the championship experience with many more club golfers.”
The schedule for Golf Week is:
Monday 8 August – Club Team Championship, Blue course
Tuesday 9 August – County Presidents & Secretaries, Green course
Tuesday & Wednesday, 9-10 August – England Golf Captains, Blue and Red courses
