The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour and Cumberwell Park Golf Club are excited to announce a new par-three challenge with a £100,000 hole in one bonus.
Set to take place on Cumberwell Park’s spectacular new nine-hole par three course on Tuesday, June 27, the par-three challenge will see the winner take home £1,000. The top 25 players will then be joined by the professional winner of the Cumberwell Park Pro-Am for a hole-in-one shoot out.
Hitting in order of finishing position in the par-three challenge each player will have one shot, with 170 yards to carry over water to the island green of the 8th hole. If any player can ace the hole they will bring an end to proceedings and take home £100,000. In the event that no hole-in-one is made, the player nearest to the pin will win £1,000.
The hole-in-one contest will be filmed for a special edition of the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour highlights show and will be shown on Sky Sports and networks covering 128 countries worldwide.
Ali James, Golf Manager at Cumberwell Park Golf Club said: “The feedback we have had since opening the Par 3 course has been fantastic and being able to host a Par 3 tournament and Hole in One Shoot Out with the potential of someone winning £100,000 during the EuroPro week is really exciting for us, and will be another great opportunity to showcase it even further.
“It’s our fourth year on the EuroPro Tour schedule now and I think we have established ourselves as one of the most enjoyable venues for the Pros so what we are doing in conjunction with the EuroPro on this event will only enhance their experience when visiting Cumberwell.”
Daniel Godding, Director of Operations at the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour, said: “I’m thrilled to have added this par-three tournament to our schedule for 2017, with an incredible £100,000 tax free on offer for a hole in one.
“The par-three course at Cumberwell Park is absolutely fantastic and I’m excited to showcase it on a special episode of our highlights programme. I’m sure every player on the tour will enter our tournament at Cumberwell Park in the hope of taking home the £100,000.”
