The Perfect Father's Day Gift!
June 13, 2011

Why not surprise your Dad this Father’s Day with a fun two day’s golf in the British Father & Son Golf Championship at the De Vere Belton Woods.

If you’re bored of giving your Dad the usual golfing gifts like balls, socks and dodgy sweaters on Father’s Day, then why not surprise him with a fun two days of golf with you in the British Father and Son Golf Championship next month.

The tournament takes place at The De Vere Belton Woods in Lincolnshire on July 31st – August 1st 2011. The format for The British Father and Son Golf Championship is a 36-hole Betterball Stableford played off ¾ handicap, with Scratch and Handicap prizes.

The tournament is unique as it is open to both professional and amateur golfers with no age restrictions. Golf professionals play off scratch and there is a maximum handicap allowance of 24 for amateur competitors who must hold an official Congu handicap.

Entry costs just £149 for juniors (under 18) and £249 for adults. The price includes one night’s accommodation, dinner, bed and breakfast at the four-star De Vere Belton Woods, two rounds of golf, tournament entry and prizes.

Golf professionals, club secretaries, head bar stewards and green keepers can enter for the special discounted price of £149, while past competitors of the European Father and Son Golf Championship, current club captains and junior organisers can enter for just £199.

The overall winning Scratch and Handicap pairs will receive a FREE* invitation to the prestigious European Father and Son Golf Championship at El Rompido Golf Resort, Costa de la Luz, Spain on October 24-29th 2011.

Now in its fourth year, the European Father and Son Golf Championship attracts a strong international field of competitors and is televised on Sky Sports.

Thanks to the growing reputation of the Father and Son Golf Championship around the world, the European Championship now has reciprocal agreements with the USA, Australia and South Africa.

“The idea behind the British Father and Son Golf Championship was to create a fun event that is accessible by all and that anyone could travel to,” explains Tournament Director and PGA Professional Toby Marsden. “By opening the entry to professionals and amateurs of all ages we hope that Father and Son partnerships from every aspect of golf, from the hard-working green keeper to the avid club player, will be encouraged to take part.”

Entry numbers to the British Father and Son Golf Championship are restricted to 60 teams for the British Father and Son Championship so competitors are advised to book their place in the tournament early to avoid disappointment. Book now by phone on (+44) 01702 680180 or email
