Doors open at Telford Hotel with free golf events
elford Hotel & Golf Resort – part of the UK’s largest golf resort operator, QHotels – will throw open its doors with a series of free tasters to tempt more golfers into enjoying the benefits of club membership.
The Membership Open Weekend at the Shropshire resort – from Friday, August 11, to Sunday, August 13 – aims to attract all levels of golfers, from beginners to ‘returners’, across the entire age spectrum.
A series of attractive events will be hosted at the venue, including a fun nine-hole challenge on the evening of Friday, August 11, and a post-round barbecue to illustrate the social scene of being a club member.
In keeping with the group’s innovative scheme to offer juniors a free membership alongside any adult sign-up, the morning of Saturday August 12 will focus on the youngsters, with free introductory lessons from the club’s PGA professionals, George Boden and Kieran Nickless, and the opportunity to get a first taste of golf in a nine-hole afternoon competition.
Later in the afternoon there is the opportunity for adults to participate in a nine-hole competition with prizes from the pro shop.
And, on Sunday August 13, the focus switches to those adults entirely new to golf with starter lessons to help with those first steps in the game from professionals Nickless and Luke Towler, between 10 and 11am, followed by afternoon tea with coffee and cake in the Gorge Bar. There is also a fun ‘golfer/non-golfer’ competition in the afternoon, again with prizes to be won.
What’s more, anybody bitten by the bug who signs up on the day can avail themselves of a special three-month trial which costs just £100 for a seven-day membership, or £80 for five-day.
Andrew Cameron, QHotels’ group golf operations manager, said: “We want to show off our venues and give visitors them an idea of the variety of activities taking place at our clubs.
“We look forward to welcoming our visitors and hope they will become bitten by the golf bug and see the social and health benefits involved.”
The multi-award-winning, four-star QHotels group offers championship-standard courses in unique resort locations including Slaley Hall – voted ‘Best Golf Hotel/Resort in the North of England’ for the third successive year in the 2017 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards and host of 18 European Tour and European Seniors Tour events – Belton Woods, Oulton Hall, Mottram Hall, and Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort.
