Kent golfers urged to take up drive challenge
11:49am Tuesday 26th June 2012 in Other Sport
BIRCHWOOD Park golf centre in Dartford will play host to Kent’s long drive challenge early next month.
Golfers from across the county are being invited to test their skills and attempt to hit the longest drive on the driving range at the public pay-and-play centre during a special event on July 4.
The long drive challenge will be held from 3pm to 7pm on the 41-bay covered and floodlit driving range, with the longest hitter winning a dozen brand new Nike 20XI golf balls.
Drive distances measured using Birchwood Park’s state-of-the-art ball flight monitors.
As well as testing their skills for prizes those attending will also be able to sample the latest products available from leading golf manufacturers.
Birchwood Park general manager Graham Rolland said: “This is a great opportunity for the golfers of Kent to test their mettle and see who really is the biggest hitter around, while also trying out some of the latest golf equipment available on the market.
“We are calling on all golfers, whether they are regular players at Birchwood Park or not, to come down and give it a go and sample our facilities.”
