Olympic Family Fun At Hoebridge

Budding Olympians, both young and old, attended the public pay-and-play facility for a day, joining in the spirit of London 2012, participating in fun games and activities, with face painting, a bouncy castle and contests such as a golf-ball-and-spoon race and cake decorating.

The friendly staff at Hoebridge – part of BGL Golf, the UK’s leading golf course owner and operator – were handing out gold medals to all the competition winners and visitors were treated to special visits from mascot Chip the Bear as well as the Woking Fire Brigade.

Home to three outstanding golf courses set in the picturesque countryside with views of the Surrey Downs, Hoebridge boasts extensive golf facilities and an busy junior golf programme to encourage more young people to get into golf, which becomes an Olympic sport again in 2016.

Mike O’Connell, Hoebridge Golf Centre Senior General Manager, said: “Our annual Family Fun Day is always well attended and our gold medals were a huge hit for this year’s Olympics themed event.

“The London Games has been a tremendous inspiration for young and old, and it is wonderful to see so many new and familiar faces here. I look forward to welcoming back all our visitors again soon.”
