While the world’s best golfers will be doing battle in the Open Championship at Royal St George’s in Kent, the cream of Britain’s leading celebrity golfers will be singing while they’re swinging on Friday July 17 in west London.
The Leuka Mini Masters hosted by actor Dougray Scott is a tongue-in-cheek blend of par-3 celebrity golf tournament, boutique music festival and summer garden party.
Held at the stunning Dukes Meadows Golf & Tennis on the banks of the river Thames in Chiswick, the event attracts stars of film, TV and sport, as well as some of the best up and coming bands in Britain.
While Goldheart Assembly, James Walsh, Glastonbury Festival New Talent winners Treetop Flyers, Lizzy Pattinson and Josh Weller play live on the Jagermeister stage, a host of famous faces will pit their wits on the picturesque nine-hole course at Dukes Meadows Golf & Tennis.
Celebrity team captains include tournament host Dougray Scott, James Nesbitt, Gabby Logan, Gianluca Vialli and Tim Lovejoy, as well as stars of the England rugby team.
With live music, celebrity golf and a putting competition, there’s plenty for spectators to enjoy – including a virtual commentator in the shape of Ryder Cup Ian Poulter.
Poulter’s IJP Design clothing range is one of the event’s sponsors and the double World Matchplay champion has generously offered a charity auction prize of a five-star four-day golf trip to Florida for three people, including a round with him at the exclusive Lake Nona Club. This prize if offered in association with YourGolfTravel.com
