Golf Coast Pro-Am finds home at Fylde

Popular event moves from Merseyside to the Fylde 

By David Birtill

The hugely popular England’s Golf Coast pro-am winds its way from Merseyside to the Fylde for the third staging of the 54-hole event.

As was the case last year, the PGA North region is inviting teams from across the country to join them at Fairhaven, St Annes Old Links and fabulous Royal Lytham & St Annes.

FANTASTIC

“This is a great chance for professionals and amateurs to play these three fantastic courses,” enthused the PGA North secretary Graham Maly. “When we launched the competition we all felt it deserved to be shared with a wider audience.”

The first round will be at Fairhaven on May 24 followed by St Annes Old Links then the famed Open Championship course at Royal Lytham where the prize presentations will be made. Maly added: “We consider it a great honour to hold the event at such fabulous venues and we hope they will attract a full field.”

VALUE

Geoff Harris, England’s Golf Coast manager, said: “It represents good value for money when you consider the venues and the prizes on offer.”

Teams comprise a PGA professional and three amateurs and cost £1,500. The £8,000 prize fund is based on 20 teams and there will be a meal at each venue.

Meanwile, Moortown Golf Club - the host venue of the first Ryder Cup to be played on British soil - will stage a pro-am of its own this spring following a hugely successful stint as the host of the Leeds Cup last summer. “We wanted to continue our affiliation with Moortown after their support of the Leeds Cup and organising a pro-am at one of the best venues in the country seemed a fantastic opportunity.”
