Windermere Golf Club has announced that it will be one of three Cumbrian golf courses hosting the brand new Lakes Festival 3 day Am Am Event, which will take place from 12th – 14th June. The four person amateur team competition, which can comprise all men/ladies or mixed, will be played in a stableford format, with Kendal’s Carus Green and Kirkby Lonsdale the other two local golf clubs involved.
Interest in the competition is already mounting, with the first prize being a golf holiday to Turkey. Bilyana Golf Holidays are the title sponsor for the event and the first prize is a seven day all inclusive hotel package with three rounds of golf for the winning team.
“We are delighted to be the title sponsor for the Lakes Festival Am Am.” said Steve Nicholson, Sales and Marketing Manager for Bilyana Golf Holidays.
“Bilyana Golf Holidays are the specialists in golf holidays in Turkey and we pride ourselves on our personal approach to our clients. We are the only company that has a guest relation team on the ground in Turkey to help our clients have the best experience possible. To be the title sponsor for the Lakes Festival is a great privilege and I will be present at the event, for all three days, to speak to anyone that has an interest in experiencing golf in Turkey.”
“We are very much looking forward to this event and would like it to be as inclusive as possible, so the make-up of the teams can be any combination of men and ladies.” said Simon Edwards, Head Professional at Windermere Golf Club.
“The teams can choose their tee times on Friday and Saturday. The final round will be drawn in score order with the leaders out last. This will add pressure to the event, as being in the last few groups at any tournament is a great thrill! One day Am Am events are much more frequently held, so this three day event is very rare. It’s also unusual to find three quality golf courses involved in a competition of this kind and we are delighted that both Carus Green and Kirkby Lonsdale will be hosting this with us. We like to think we can offer something a bit different at Windermere and this three day festival is testament to that.”
