NEW MID AMATEUR GOLF TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCED
The South East of England Mid Amateur Stroke Play Championship
17th February 2011

Wyncanton Marketing Services (Whitstable, Kent. UK) are pleased to announce a new golf championship for Mid Amateur golfers in the UK. The South East of England Mid Amateur Stroke Play Championship will take place at Rochester & Cobham Park Golf Club in Kent on Thursday 5 th May 2011.

The tournament will be held over 36 holes in one day, with the winner being the player who returns the lowest gross score for the 36 holes. Prizes will be given for the first 5 places in the scratch event and the first 3 places in the handicap event and there is an expected prize fund of over £1,000. The event will be open to all male golfers who are in possession of a CONGU handicap of 9 or less.

"We felt that there was a huge gap in the market for a new tournament aimed at golfers aged over 35 years of age." said Jason Morris, Golf Director of Wyncanton Marketing Services. "The standard of amateur golf is now such, that unless you hold a handicap of scratch or better you stand little or no chance of entering some of the more prestigious events around the country and players are left in a golfing wilderness."

Mid Amateur or Mid Age competitions are held at a small number of clubs across the south of England and with the exception of County Unions who hold Mid Age Championships once a year there is little or nothing for players aged over 35 to play in.

"Our long term goal is to have a series of events across the UK with an order of merit and end of year championship to give the more mature players in the UK their own mini tour."

Wyncanton Marketing Services are an event management company who specialise in arranging golf events, corporate golf events and society days.
