The Golf Classic is the UK construction industry’s national golf tournament. For 25 years it has offered golfers of all abilities the opportunity to play in their region, make new friends, and forge profitable partnerships. To mark its anniversary, The Golf Classic is offering give-aways, prizes, more ways to reach the Grand Final, and half price entry for teams who introduce new entrants to the tournament.
What the players say
One long-standing player explains why he takes part: “We look forward to the event each year. It’s a great way to meet golfers we have things in common with. The away matches also enable us to get to know new courses, which is good fun!”
Ian Evans, Stirling Technical Engineering: “My dad and I had a hard fought victory today at an away course. I managed to hole my bunker shot on the 9th for a birdie and then get a hole in one on the 10th to go one up. We held on to narrowly win. Another great game in the Golf Classic.”
2015 Grand Final Winner Steve Mitchell of Alan Buchan Contractors commented: “The Final was excellent. Our playing partners on the day were friendly and played very well. The whole tournament was an enjoyable experience – definitely competing next year.”
How it works
Entry costs just £42 per two-ball team. The six round knockout tournament is played alternately at home or away venues regionally with green fees being shared. The Golf Classic team handles the administration and matching, leaving players to enjoy their golf.
