On Monday 24th June Minchinhampton Golf Club on behalf of the R&A will be hosting one of the Regional Qualifiers for the 148th Open Championship to be held at Royal Portrush in July. We are one of only 13 courses to be selected across the UK and is well deserved recognition for the outstanding golf facilities the 130 year old club provide.
The Qualifier gives a chance for regional professionals and elite amateur players to chase their dream of playing in a Major Championship against the world’s best players in what is regarded as the premier golf competition in the world.
The Qualifier will be held on Monday 24th June on the Avening Championship Course which recreates the original Martin Hawtree layout, combining, for the first time since 1995, the most challenging holes from both of the New Courses at Minchinhampton.
This year the club is delighted that three Members of the Club staff are competing in the Qualifier this year. Nick Haile, a member of the Professional Team, is teeing off in the morning. Nick joined the Professional staff after many successful years as a Junior Member at Minchinhampton. Nick’s entry into the event has been sponsored by the Club’s Ladies Section who crowd funded to get his entry fee for the event. He is joined in the draw by Tom Workman and Jake Philips. Tom and Jake are members of the MGC green staff and will be working hard in the lead up to the event preparing the course, so it is in it’s best condition for the day. Both represent Gloucestershire in County events and matches. They both have plus figure handicaps and will be looking to progress to Final Qualifying on a course they know well.
Spectators will be welcome on the day with free admission and parking as well as access to bar and catering facilities. The event will provide a great opportunity for existing and aspiring golfers to watch the region’s best players in action and also to see at first hand the first class facilities that Minchinhampton Golf Club has to offer
