Magnolia Park Blog - August
Despite the holiday season August has been a very busy month here at Magnolia Park. Whilst we didn't have the glorious hot sunshine we all enjoyed throughout July, we did have some great weather with plenty of showers to help the golf course recover.
Inside the clubhouse we hosted two big weddings, a wake with over 130 guests plus numerous conferences and meetings and not forgetting the three-day FootGolf tournament!. This busy period is set to continue into September as we have six weddings taking place, a three-day vintage car rally along with numerous other smaller conferences/meetings and society golf days. Plus September is an extremely busy month for us with Stay & Play golfers enjoying all the facilities on offer here at Magnolia Park.
The UK FootGolf Open, Friday 17th - Sunday 19th August
Over the weekend of Friday 17th to Sunday 19th August we welcomed back to Magnolia Park the UK FootGolf Association for the 2018 UK Open. 133 players from all over Europe, and beyond, were here competing in one of the sport's Major events. This tournament, along with other competitions held throughout the year, gives competitors the chance to gain points to qualify for UK world cup team, which is being held in Marrakech in late 2018.
As well as the main individual event, titles were up for a variety of other categories including the Over 45's, Ladies, Amateur and the National Pairs.
