Chance for Golfers to Experience Dynamic GolfSixes Format

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 24 Apr 2019 | Comments


GolfSixes has been a popular addition to the European Tour calendar in recent years, and regular golfers will have the opportunity to experience the unique format this May at Glendale Golf venues across the country. 

Partnering with England Golf, individual events will be run during midweek evenings and weekends, showcasing this fun, quicker and dynamic form of the game, taking place at Richmond Park in London; Tilgate Forest in West Sussex; Portsmouth Golf Course in Hampshire; and Duxbury Park in Chorley, Lancashire.

Open to members and visitors - these events will be accessible to everyone. Golfers will play in pairs and compete in a match play, better ball format. They’ll also follow Glendale’s ‘ready, steady, golf’ policy, which has been created to avoid slow play.

The Format

  • Enter as a team of two players. Everyone welcome, there is no category division.
  • An official handicap is not required
  • £10 per player includes a complimentary drink in the clubhouse afterwards
  • Take part in a six-hole match against another team.
  • Prizes for all match winning teams
  • Grand Prize of a Complimentary 1 Month Membership for the overall winning team

Tom Brooke, managing director of Glendale Golf, said “There’s a huge buzz about golf following Tiger’s great win and we know lots of people want to play golf more regularly, but haven’t got time for a full 18-hole round. GolfSixes is ideal for them, it’s fun, it’s competitive, it’s sociable – and it’s quick. The team matchplay format also brings with it that extra edge that we normally only see at The Ryder Cup! Our mission is to show that golf is accessible, enjoyable and a game for all and GolfSixes is a great way to spread that message.”

Claire Hodgson, England Golf Head of Engagement, added: “This is an excellent opportunity for us to showcase that there are many different ways to play golf. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got 30 minutes, an hour or three hours, there’s always a way to play golf and GolfSixes is one of them.”
