CLOSE HOUSE UPDATES ON BRITISH MASTERS
Upcoming European Tour events attract tremendous interest
In late October 2016 WLG member club Close House had announced, that it was proud and ready to serve as official venue of the British Masters in 2017. The club’s attached tour professional and former World Number 1 golfer Lee Westwood has not only helped the team at Close House to improve the features of the Scott Macpherson designed Colt golf courses, he will be hosting the British Masters.
As the British Masters are about to start, Managing Director John Lupton reports on the overwhelming interest in tickets for the event in the latest Close House newsletter. While all oft he 10.000 free tickets that had been offered by the European Tour were almost instantly taken, there are still tickets available at www.britishmasters.europeantour.com/tickets
Lupton also invites golf enthusiasts to come and try the Colt Course themselves. With 6228 m, the Championship Course is not very long, but given the rather tight and undulating holes, the ‘Old English’-style Colt poses unique challenge for the professionals. But it also appeals to players at every level of skill and rewards first-time visitors just as much as the year-round members.
Taking a time out at the 250-year-old Close House estate set in Northumberland’s beautiful and serene Tyne Valley is a delight in itself. Besides being a stunning setting for a post-round drink, the modern, purpose-built No.19 clubhouse serves a delicious breakfast and provides first-class dining for those staying over at the Courtyard at Close House. So the venue not only caters to indulged golfers, it is also the perfect base to explore the surrounding historical and cultural sights.
