The Golf Classic 2018 second round is now underway, with golfers of all abilities competing in the national five-round knockout competition.
Entrants are playing for the chance to win a place in the Grand Final, which will take place in September at Slaley Hall, Northumberland.
Slaley Hall is an Elizabethan mansion in 1,000 acres of the Northumberland countryside. Its Hunting Course is a European Tour venue and is known as the ‘Augusta of the North’. The course is said to offer golfers the opportunity to play testing but invigorating golf.
The first round teed-off in March and Matt Kennington, Heritage Consultant & Architectural Technologist of Hoopers Architects won his first game of the tournament.
He commented: “We had a really enjoyable game that could have gone either way and had to be decided by an extra hole!”
Many competitors enter the Golf Classic each year to play golf and forge new relationships which often grow into profitable partnerships, with all finalists enjoying free golf, a gala dinner, prize-giving and an overnight stay.
There will also be spot prizes in each round which will include branded golf balls, caps and umbrellas, a weekend golf break, and the chance to take part in the final as ‘lucky losers’.
The Golf Classic is requesting competitors to send in pictures and stories from the games, with a prize for those included in the press release and online.
