Magnolia Park Golf and Country Club, located to the east of Oxford close to the M40 motorway, have signed an agreement to work with two time major winner and Ryder Cup winning Captain, Tony Jacklin CBE. As the most successful European Ryder Cup captain of all time, Tony has been involved in some of golf’s most iconic moments and Magnolia Park are proud that Tony Jacklin has seen their plans for the redevelopment of the Par 3 course.

Tony will lend his golf course architecture expertise to the new Magnolia Park Golf and Country Club Par 3 Championship Course as well as the driving range and academy facilities, offering his professional advice and assistance to all the team involved in a bid to make Magnolia a superb golfing destination.

On the signing of the agreement Tony commented: “I have been an advocate of Par 3 golf for many years which is why I am the ambassador for the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship, I believe it is the future for golf. Alan and the team at Magnolia Park have a great vision for the future and want to provide its members with the best golfing facilities, and for me to join that team is a privilege, I can’t wait to get started.”

Magnolia Park owner Alan Pither commented, “I am excited about the opportunity to work with a golfing icon such as Tony Jacklin who I think will be a great asset to Magnolia Park throughout the relationship.”
