In anticipation of the opening of its new 40 room hotel in September 2013, Sandford Springs Golf Club in Kingsclere, Hampshire and Golf Monthly have teamed up to identify the most loved golf-themed movie of all time.
One lucky participant, who takes part in the online poll to find the best golf movie as decided by golfers, will win a one night's stay for two people at the new 4-star hotel that will include breakfast, dinner and a round of golf.
Golf enthusiasts across the UK can enter by going to the Golf Monthly website where there is a poll of the 10 highest grossing golf films of all time.
Readers who cast their vote will be automatically entered into the draw and a winner will then be selected at random.
The golf club has committed itself to ensuring that the top five highest voted golf films will be available for viewing at the new hotel.
The competition will be open to UK residents only and will run from July until September 1st, 2013.
The shortlist is:
- Tin Cup - 1996
- Greatest Game Ever Played - 2005
- Happy Gilmore - 1996
- Caddyshack - 1980
- Legend of Bagger Vance - 2000
