Oxford Golf Club Launches ‘Golf Express’ Summer Sessions

Oxford Golf Club has launched a special ‘nine holes and a drink’ package to encourage people to play the sport, as part of an England Golf national campaign.

The historic club is offering the opportunity to enjoy nine holes and a post-game drink after 5pm on Thursday evenings throughout the summer for just £15. England Golf launched ‘Golf Express’ nationally to inspire busy people to play the sport more by promoting the nine-hole game as a complete and enjoyable experience. Oxford Golf Club incorporated the theme into its own wider strategy to attract more people to the sport.

Oxford Golf Club is the oldest course in Oxfordshire and features a Harry Colt designed 18-hole course, putting green, practice area and coaching school. It is located on Hilltop Road, Oxford.

Under the slogan of ‘All the game in half the time’ Golf Express offers a solution to time starved golfers by promoting shorter rounds to get more people playing. On average a nine-hole round of golf takes two hours.

General Manager, Stephen Nicholson, said: “This is a package we have created to make golf as accessible as possible to everyone in support of England Golf’s Golf Express campaign. It is an ideal way for people who have not got time to play 18 holes, or people who want to give golf, or the course a try to play.

“The weather is glorious too, so it’s a lovely way to spend a Thursday evening and enjoy the sport and the considerable health benefits it brings.”

Earlier this summer Oxford Golf Club also launched a Junior Academy aimed at supporting more youngsters in taking up the sport.
