Time to forget the snow and rain and look ahead to an awesome summer of golf for us all, and for MG and our friends Nailcote Hall will play a leading role once again.

As in 2017 we are repeating our two big playing events at the home of Par 3 golf in the UK. For this year we want to make them bigger than ever and invite all readers to be a part of it.

 

SATURDAY JUNE 23RD – MG Par 3 Championships – Part II.

48 golfers took part last year in a memorable first running of our singles stableford event. In brilliant sunshine (which was no mean feat in the summer we had) Neil Shinebaum, a 5 handicapper from Bridgnorth (pictured left) was our first ever Par 3 Champion and will be back in June to defend his title.

For this year we want to grow it to a full compliment of 72 golfers. Our societies and other golfing groups of friends are welcome to enter four of their golfers, as long they know that once the shotgun goes off – it’s every man and woman, boy or girl for themselves!
