Slingsby Golf Event

Driving female golf participation With Slingsby Golf Academy



At Rudding Park, we like to be able to inspire our guests to try new experiences. Golf has never been more popular and we are keen to encourage more women on course

With this in mind, this summer we partnered with the Slingsby Golf Academy. This exciting initiative saw four celebrity cadets (TV presenter Helen Skelton, singer-songwriter Fleur East, Sky Sports Formula 1 presenter Natalie Pinkham and broadcaster Bela Shah) who were new to golf, challenged to take a swing at the sport.

The celebrities had six months to learn how to play golf before competing against each other in a nerve-wracking play off to qualify for a spot in the BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am.

Helen Skelton, was coached and mentored by PGA Professional Steph Davies from Grooves Golf at Rudding Park. Helen learned new skills and practiced on the 6 Hole Repton Short Course which features a signature 5th hole, based on the world-famous 17th at Sawgrass, Florida.

If they can do it, so can you! 
If the series inspires you to take up the sport, why not try to master golf in 6 holes on Repton Short Course - perfect for beginners. So if you want to try something new and get your fresh air fix, book a tee time online today. Clubs are available to hire.
