Golf at Goodwood

The Park Course at Goodwood opens its gates to the public on April 4, an occasion that was celebrated recently with a par 3 shoot out.

Former Ryder Cuppers Steve Richardson, Paul Way and Neil Coles were among some big names taking part in the 11th hole’s nearest-the-pin competition on the Donald Steel-designed Park Course.   Richardson looked to have the job done, but journalist Colin Channon put his rescue club to ten feet at the testing 190-yard hole and claimed the title.

Any golfer that can better Channon’s effort during Launch Week will win a free round of golf on the Park Course. In addition, there are Callaway putters for the best shot each day, and the closest tee shot for the whole week attracts a prize of a luxury weekend at The Goodwood Hotel with all the trimmings.   

Golf At Goodwood (opens in new tab) consists of The Downs Course, created by James Braid in 1914 as well as The Park Course – the clubhouse of which is the Goodwood Hotel that includes excellent dining facilities.

General Manager of Golf At Goodwood, Rob Greig, is expecting a busy year: "Golf At Goodwood is all about flexibility and as such, believe we have the complete range of golfing products, whether you are looking for membership of a fantastic golf club or just want to turn up and pay a green fee.”
