Road To The Open






The ‘Road to the Open 2012’ project has been put in place to celebrate that The Open Championship, the biggest and most high profile golf event in the world is coming to Lancashire in 2012. With The Open Championship being at Royal Lytham it provides The Golf Foundation, England Golf, PGA, Lancashire County Council and Lancashire Sport with an opportunity to engage with people who may have never even tried the sport at a time when golf is at the forefront of many people’s minds.

To really engage with these people the Road to the Open Project are delivering a series of ‘Town Tour’ and ‘Beach Tour’ events. These events will host opportunities for people of all ages to have the opportunity to hit a golf ball overseen by a PGA Professional, receive information about local golf opportunities, young people will have the chance to play fun Tri-Golf activities,  and receive information about The Open Championship and how everyone can attend as a spectator and free to under 16’s with an adult.
