Golf Live goes down a storm in the Kent sunshine

London Golf Club whips up a treat with the punters

Mon, 23 May 2011

The second Golf LIVE event took place at a very sunny London Golf Club over the weekend – and it proved to be a rousing success. 

The 18th green provided an ample theatre for hints and tips displays from the likes of Colin Montgomerie, Paul McGinley, Ian Woosnam and David Howell.

Elsewhere, trick-shot king Jeremy Dale showed off his remarkable skills and world long-drive champion Joe Miller almost found the English Channel with his booming tee shots, while the biggest brands in golf showcased their latest equipment technologies.

Golfmagic was in attendance on Friday (May 20) and we asked you what you thought of the show.

“The London Golf Club is a much better venue for Golf LIVE than last year’s Stoke Park renewal. There are so many more stalls this year and I am really excited to see Ian Woosnam because he is one of all-time favourite golfers.”

“This is my first experience of Golf LIVE and I have learnt so much from the pros already. I struggle with my bunker play so it was great to get some useful tips from Nick Dougherty. I was also excited to see 18-year-old Carly Booth, who looks to have a very bright future ahead of her on the Ladies circuit.”
Cathy from Maidstone

“This is our first time to London Golf Club and we’re very pleased. We like the ambiance of the whole event and obviously the weather has made it extra special. As 14 handicappers, it has been great to take in advice from Colin Montgomerie who we both admire greatly; we hope to take what we have learnt onto the course next time to try and lower our scores.”

For me it wasn’t necessarily about the stars strutting their stuff, but the equipment on show. I’ve been through almost all the display tents and tried out every kind of driver available. I’m now going to test some putters!
Jamie from Dartford

“We came to the European Open when Ross Fisher won three years ago and decided to come back again because we were so impressed with the layout of the course. We have been sitting in the grandstand on the 18th for most of the day watching the likes of Ian Woosnam, Paul McGinley, Colin Montgomerie and Nick Dougherty.”

“Superb. Good atmosphere and lots of things to participate in. However, the best part of the day was seeing our hero Ian Wright play in the three-hole challenge with DJ Spoony and Steve Backley.”
John from Kent

“There is so much going on, you just do not know where to look. It’s very overwhelming but a great experience to be up close and personal with some of the greatest ever British players. I was given the ticket as a Father’s Day present and have not been disappointed. The best part so far has been David Howell giving tremendous feedback to the gallery at the short-game area.”
Eddie from Croydon

 “I’ve been a member here since 2007 and loved every minute of it. The greens are immaculate and the course looks amazing. Great to see the Long Drive champion Joe Miller in action; it’s simply incredible to see him strike the ball over 400 yards on the fly.”

“Playing from the sand is my Achilles heel in this game, so I was watching the bunker play lesson with Nick Dougherty very closely. I also got chatting to someone from Golfbreaks and may have booked a holiday with them. Now I just have to go home and tell the wife…”
Oliver from Brighton
