New London Mid Amateur tournament announced
August 17, 2011

Wyncanton Marketing Services Ltd (Whitstable, Kent. UK) are pleased to announce a new golf championship for Mid Amateur golfers in the UK. The Greater London Mid Amateur Stroke Play Championship will take place at Langley Park Golf Club in Bromley on Thursday 29 th September 2011.

The tournament will be held over 36 holes in one day, with the winner being the player who returns the lowest gross score for the 36 holes. Prizes will be given for the first 4 places in the scratch event and the first 3 places in the handicap event and there is an expected prize fund of over £1,000. The event will be open to all male golfers who are in possession of a an active CONGU handicap of 12 or less.

"Following on from the success of our first event, The SE England Mid Amateur Championship we decided to add another event for 2011. The feedback was so positive from the players that it cemented our belief that there is a huge gap in the market for new tournaments aimed at golfers aged over 35 years of age." said Jason Morris, Golf Director of Wyncanton Marketing Services. "The standard of amateur golf is now such, that unless you hold a handicap of scratch or better you stand little or no chance of entering some of the more prestigious events around the country and players are left in a golfing wilderness."

Mid Amateur or Mid Age competitions are held at a small number of clubs across the south of England and with the exception of County Unions who hold Mid Age Championships once a year there is little or nothing for players aged over 35 to play in.

"These are exciting time for us and the new web site is attracting visitors from all over the world. We are also currently planning 6 events for next year and are looking at resurrecting some tournaments that have fallen by the wayside including the Welsh Mid Amateur Championship."

Wyncanton Marketing Services are an event management company who specialise in arranging golf events, corporate golf events and society days.
