Stadium Golf Tour, a ground-breaking initiative that will transform iconic sporting stadiums across the UK into unique golfing experiences, hosted a special media preview night at Twickenham Stadium on Wednesday ahead of the first days play at Twickenham Stadium.
The preview event was attended by rugby stars Danny Care and Ugo Monye alongside key UK media and partners Wilson Golf and Ellesse.
Also in attendance was England Golf, the national governing body for the sport, with whom Stadium Golf Tour have been working closely with to help grow the game and introduce golf to new audiences.
Stadium Golf Tour opens the doors to sporting stadiums, allowing golf enthusiasts and newcomers alike to step onto the hallowed grounds and play nine holes of golf like never before.
For the first time in England, beloved stadiums bid farewell to their traditional sports and welcome the game of golf. The famous pitches will be converted into 9-hole golf courses, challenging participants to showcase their skills from nine tee boxes positioned strategically around the stadium.
In addition to the unforgettable 9-hole golf course, Stadium Golf Tour offers attendees access to "The Clubhouse," a vibrant hub where participants can immerse themselves in the world of golf.
The Clubhouse boasts an array of activities, including golf simulators, a putting and chipping challenge, a hitting platform, plus exclusive behind the scenes stadium tours.
Participants will have the chance to explore notable areas of these sporting arenas, such as the legendary Twickenham England Changing Rooms, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Speaking about Stadium Golf Tour Nils Braude, Managing Director, Twickenham Experience Limited, said “It has been great to see the stadium transform into a nine-hole golf course. Adding a golf tournament to the long list of events that have been previously held at the stadium, further shows how versatile a venue such as Twickenham can be. Stadium Golf Tour is a great addition to our annual sporting calendar.“
“We could not be happier to kick off the UK Tour at Twickenham,” Michael Wiggins, president of the Stadium Golf Tour said. “Twickenham Stadium is one of the most iconic stadiums in the world and we can’t wait to get going!”
