Abbey Hill Golf Centre, Two Mile Ash, Milton Keynes, is set to host its inaugural Mr. Mulligan’s Pirate Golf Family Tournament this weekend (12-13 December).
The Centre is welcoming families from local school Giffard Park Primary, whose students will take part in the event. Following the weekend, the tournament will be rolled out to other local schools in the community.
The Centre, which is accustomed to working closely with local schools thanks to its thriving junior programme, will donate 25% of the ticket sales to participating schools. A representative from Abbey Hill will also present trophies to winning pupils at the school the following week.
“This is a great way to reaffirm our close ties with kids and families in the local area,” said, Andrew Scholey, General Manager at Abbey Hill Golf Centre.
“It’s great for us to be able to showcase our fantastic Mr. Mulligan’s Pirate Golf facility, but most importantly, it’ll be bags of fun for the participating children and their families.”
The Centre plans to develop the tournament, inviting several different schools as partners. Subsequently, there will be a ‘Champion of Champions’ event in the summer of 2016 during which all event winners will be invited to compete to be crowned Milton Keynes Pirate Golf Champion.
Teams of a maximum of five will compete, with the best two scores counting on each hole. This will ensure that those teams with fewer than five are not too disadvantaged.
As well as Mr. Mulligan’s Pirate Golf, Abbey Hill continues to provide the local community with both an all-embracing atmosphere and first-class golf facilities, boasting what many regard as perhaps the best golf course in Milton Keynes.
The challenging, main 18-hole parkland layout features some spectacular backdrops, while the 9-hole par three short course, driving range and Mr Mulligan’s Pirate Golf are popular with all corners of the area.
