Over 100 players took part in the 11th annual Nottinghamshire Chinese Golf Open which took place week


The Nottinghamshire Golf and Country club boasts two magnificent 18 hole courses, set in 340 acres of parkland. They were chosen to host the English Girls Open Championship in 2016, the first time that the U18, U16 and U14 events have all been at one venue. Both courses have had many famous golfers play over the years and on the hottest of Tuesdays on 26th June it was the return of the Nottinghamshire Chinese Golf Open.

This society and competition is now in its 11th year and brings together a community of Cantonese and Chinese takeaway and restaurant owners, fish and chip shop owners and suppliers to the trade.

Such is the popularity of the event that over 100 golfers took part on the day. A ‘shotgun’ start across all 18 holes was required to manage the numbers and some holes still had to start with multiple groups on the tee.



There were some impressive prizes up for grabs once again, including £1,500 to the winner and £3,000 for a course hole in one! The course itself is set around an impressive lake and waterways complex that not only offers a golfing challenge but is also home to a considerable amount of wildlife. Due to the high amount of golfers, it took around six hours to complete. Considering an average four ball should be around four hours, players had to be physically and mentally prepared.

Following the golf, all players, wives and sponsors took the 20 minutes drive to the Springwater Cantonese Restaurant in Calverton for the evening meal and awards presentation. Middleton's and Friars Pride were amongst the main sponsors presenting awards on the night and Nigel Ramsay of Middleton's, not for the first time, picked up the winners medal for the ‘Best Guest Score’ on the day at net 70.
