Golfers have perfect lead up to Glorious Goodwood

Golfers are being offered the perfect way to prepare for Glorious Goodwood by competing in an exciting new event.

The first official Glorious Goodwood Golf Day follows on from the success of similar days at the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot.

Fairway to Furlong will stage the inaugural event on Monday, July 30, and it is guaranteed to whet the appetite of any golfer passionate about the Sport of Kings.

More than 150 people attended this year’s Royal Ascot Golf Day, including Grand National winning jockey Mick Fitzgerald, ex-England football stars Glenn Hoddle and Jamie Redknapp and BBC TV racing presenter Rishi Persad, and an equally impressive celebrity line-up is set to feature at Goodwood.

Fans have the chance to play 18 holes of golf on one of Goodwood’s two 18-hole courses and enjoy a tapas meal before watching an expert panel preview the next five days’ action. It’s all in aid of UK Youth.

The event’s expert panel, hosted by Sky Sports’ Ed Chamberlain, is poised to include some of the leading names from the horse racing world including Fitzgerald and At The Races presenter Gina Bryce.

Packages for the day start from £800 for a team of four people which includes 18 holes of golf on Goodwood’s Park course, a tapas dinner at The Kennels and the preview – with golf on the Downs course available for an extra £200 per team.

Guests will enjoy breakfast on arrival, goody bags courtesy of Cleveland Srixon, beat the pro, nearest the pin, longest drive and other feature competitions, bar facilities all day and a live band and entertainment and charity auction in aid of UK Youth.

Glorious Goodwood annually attracts more than 100,000 racegoers and is likely to be more popular than ever this year with racing superstar Frankel poised to defend his title in the Sussex Stakes.
