PRG teams up with Ricoh Women's British Open and Woburn Golf Club to give local school children the chance to design a commemorative putter cover

Bespoke golf accessory supplier PRG has teamed up with the Ricoh Women's British Open Championship and Woburn Golf Club to offer local school children the chance to design a putter cover for this year’s tournament.

The Women's British Open is one of five majors in the women's game and is being played over the Marquess course.

Woburn hosts the tournament for a record 10th time and for the first time since 1998.

“This is another big year for our club,” said Dan Blesovsky, Golf Services Manager at Woburn.

“We are delighted that we have been able to team up with PRG and the Ricoh Women's British Open to give local school children this incredible opportunity.

"It’s going to create an added buzz in the local area, and further afield, in the run-up to the Ricoh Women’s British Open, which we are eagerly looking forward to.”

Putter cover

This unique initiative has seen Woburn Golf Club inundated with over 200 eye-catching putter cover designs from children at the nearby Swallowfield School in Woburn Sands.

The winning entrant will have their creation put into full production and sold in the pro shop at Woburn Golf Club.

With just 100 pieces being made, numbered 1-100, each will be sold with all proceeds going to the Championship's chosen charities - Plant a Tree Africa and Breakthrough Cancer.

“The children were given the project for a week by the school and the winner will be presented with the final head cover, number #1 from the production run, at a school assembly a week before the big event.” added Blesovsky.

“We’ve been hugely impressed by both the quality and creativity of the entries,” said Ian Dudman, Key Account Manager at PRG.

“The children have really engaged with the project, and will no doubt be eagerly awaiting the announcement of the winner. We’re looking forward to seeing the winning design in production and on-sale at Woburn during the week of the event.”
