Historic day for My Circle Golf as the community experiences links golf and the first ever Ambassador event
Monday August 07, 2017
We were able to host two events at the same time at Prince’s and Chelsfield Lakes thanks to one of our Ambassadors.
Prince’s Golf Club
Premium member, Alexis had been looking forward to ticking the links course at Prince’s Golf Club off his bucket list and he certainly made the most of it. Not only did he win the event to bag himself a sleeve of TP5 golf balls, but he also won a £30 Golf Escapes voucher in a prize draw AND hit the shot of the day – a fantastic shot out of a proper links bunker that finished within 10 feet of the hole, which he then knocked in to save par. You can see the video of the shot on our Instagram here.
The course was in great condition and the weather was great on the front nine, but we were then forced off the course for security reasons due to a lightning storm (final scores were worked out from the 11 holes that we managed to play). Prince’s has hosted the Open Championship and is currently an Open Qualifying Course. It is a true links course and has a centrally located clubhouse offering magnificent views over the course and Pegwell Bay.
Chelsfield Lakes Golf Club
Over in Orpington, the first ever Ambassador event was hosted by Mark Grimwood and had a great turnout, with Dave Minshull winning the battle of the Daves in a playoff victory over Launch Series debutant Dave Gibbs. He picked up an American Golf voucher for winning whilst the runner up received a sleeve of TP5 balls. James Dandridge won a £30 Golf Escapes voucher in the prize draw.
The Chelsfield Lakes course sits in 190 acres of striking parkland with challenging holes, beautiful countryside and attractive water features. Many thanks to Mark for organising the first ever Ambassador event!
