A QUICK NINE
- Limited time?
- Keen on exercise?
- Enjoy fresh air with stunning views?
- Eager to tee up and whack some balls?
Then read on ………
Busy, busy, busy. Modern day life doesn’t seem to leave much room for anything these days - let alone four hour plus rounds of golf and a nice relaxing pint and natter in the clubhouse.
Well, here at Churchill & Blakedown, just a driver and wedge off the A456 we have some good news. You can get your golfing fix on one of the most picturesque settings in North Worcestershire, enjoy a refreshing drink and be driving back out of the club in a little over two hours.
A quick nine is the current buzz word in golf. It’s even a national campaign - Golf Express was launched nationally by England Golf two years ago to promote the idea. This campaign doffs a cap to the fact that while lifestyles have changed people still love golf and that 9-holes can be just as challenging, relaxing and enjoyable as 18 (although we hasten to add that if you prefer 18 holes then two circuits of Churchill – with different tees for the back nine – offers one of the longest in North Worcestershire.)
But this article is about the 9-holes so why not come and see what we have to offer:
- Variety of testing holes
- Superb views (plus best pint on a patio bar none)
- Great hospitality and fantastic social scene.
- Have as much fun, competition, excitement, exercise and relaxation as you could wish for – and still be back to ferry the kids from football or dash to the supermarket.
And if that hasn’t swung it here are some other reasons:
- Relaxation – is there a better way to unwind after work?
- Health benefits – it’s not just great fun but good for you – ask your doctor!
- In a 9-hole round a player will walk two to three miles, take over 5000 steps and burn over 450 calories.
- The appeal of the 9-hole game, which is compatible with the Rules of Golf and the handicap system, has also prompted the R&A to launch a new 9-hole championship for amateurs and Scottish Golf is also promoting the shorter format.
- It’s outdoors – fresh air, the smell of freshly cut fairways – need we go on.
