Sir Nick Faldo, winner of six major championships will return to Hertfordshire the golf club where he learnt to play, Welwyn Garden City GC next week. He will be launching the 25th anniversary of the Faldo Series, and its largest championship.
The first two days will see 282 boys play over two courses at nearby Brocket Hall GC whilst 93 girls will compete at Welwyn Garden City GC. On the final day both categories will come together at Brocket Hall. The age category winners will earn an invite to the Faldo Series final in Abu Dhabi in October.
Sir Nick said “when the series began back in 1996 it presented an opportunity for me to give back to the game. How far we’ve come over those 25 years is unbelievable. Looking at 3 courses full of ambitious, talented boys and girls and hosting a competition with 375 players is mind blowing but demonstrates the exciting future for golf”.
10 further events will be played throughout the summer.
