CUMBERWELL Park will be hosting a new event to go alongside their PGA EuroPro Tour GRENKE Championship next month.

The annual three-day tournament which begins on Wednesday, June 28, will be preceded by a new par-three competition on the Tuesday.

All players taking part in the GRENKE Championship, which has been staged at the Bradford on Avon golf course since 2014, will be eligible to enter.

The winner of the par-three contest will take home £1,000 and the top 25 players will then be joined by the professional winner of the Cumberwell Park Pro-Am for The 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 eighth 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 PGA EuroPro Tour highlights show and will be shown on Sky Sports.

Ali James, golf manager at Cumberwell, said: “The feedback we have had since opening the Par 3 course has been fantastic and being able to host the 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 and on this event will only enhance their experience.”
