We were honoured to have hosted an event at one of the North Wests premier golf clubs recently. On Friday Novemebr 16th, 32 members from The Manchester Golf Club (Hopwood) got a clear dry night to play 4 holes of Night Golf. The future for Night Golf is looking good as we were particularly impressed with the interest from the Junior section (and even more impressed by their swings!). There are some talented youngsters at that club.
The evening was topped off with a curry & rice/chips and the club even fed the Night Golf team (we can be quite a hungry bunch after a full evening standing around in the cold). The food was fantastic and much appreciated after a long evening for us.
I took the opportunity to play the course in the morning before the event and, even at this time of year, it’s an impressive track with very good putting surfaces. The par 3’s are fantastic (the 16th is a beast at 230yds+) but my personal favourite hole was the par 4 12th. I didn’t like the 15th although that may be down to the 8 I took when I was only +1 at the time! All round, it was a great course, a welcoming club, a thoroughly enjoyable event and great food. Thanks to the Pro Brian, Gerry, Stephen and the kitchen staff for making it such a success. We hope to be back there again very soon.
