2019 – Back in our second home

The dates are set for MG’s annual days out at Nailcote Hall and our two favourite competitions are both returning in 2019 to the home of short game golf in the UK on the beautiful looking yet deadly Cromwell Course.

First off is the MG Par 3 Championships which was held this year on a beautiful mid-summers day on the Cromwell Course. For the first time we ran it alongside MG junior section sponsors Shires Junior Golf Tour who brought some of the most promising youngsters in the South Midlands to compete, along with their distinctive scoreboard which added a special something extra to proceedings.

On the day the juniors competed alongside the adult golfers and we ended up with two Par 3 champions – taking home a shiny trophy each. Joseph Hyde from Kettering GC became our junior title holder and Hinckley GC golfer Steve Eaves took away the adult trophy, defeating 40 other competitors.

Both will be back next year to defend their titles, as will Shires Junior Golf Tour to ensure we’ll again have a healthy junior contingent present.
