Check out this review on the Golf Days UK Essex Tour 2012 – The Race to Stoke Park by one of our tour regulars, Matt Holbrook.
“If your looking for fun, friendly, affordable competitive golf then look no further than Golf Days UK Essex Tour – The Race to Stoke Park.
Spread out over the duration of the year, over 10 different courses in Essex ( they also run a Tour of Norfolk!!) the ‘Race to Stoke Park’ is a must for Club and non club golfers alike.
Playing off 3/4 handicaps, your 5 best stableford scores from as many events as you can make (max 10) will go towards your total. First place will win a overnight stay at the famous Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, with second place winning a set of custom fit irons from tour sponsor Chris Potter Golf.
As well as these magnificent prizes, during each individual event, there is also prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, nearest the pin and two long drives – one for single figure handicap players and one for double.
Currently attracting between 20-30 players, in a relaxed atmosphere, you can enjoy some of the finest golf courses Essex has to offer. Events are once a month on either Friday or Sunday afternoon. As you arrive you will register with Ben or Sam and you will be told what holes nearest the pin and long drive are. Then you let your golf do the talking!
It is important to mention that handicaps will be adjusted throughout the tour where needed for obvious reasons.
Leaderboard, results and a funky video of each event is also uploaded onto their website after each event.
With all the amazing prizes up for grabs, which include clubs, bags, balls, hats and shoes to name but a few, your probably thinking “Pricey”. Well fear not, each event is only £29 per event (£5 if the event is being played at your home course)
If you live in or around Essex and you’re a keen golfer and want some competitive golf then get involved in what are some cracking events.”
