On Friday 28 July Porsche Centre Bolton hosted the annual Porsche Golf Cup Great Britain qualifying round for customers and guests at Bolton Lostock Park Golf Club.
Bolton Golf Club is recognised as one of the finest clubs in the North West of England. It is the home of the PGA Northern Region where young professionals learn their trade before hopefully graduating to the European Tour. The course was originally laid out in 1912 and some years later the design was modified after consultations with the famous golf designer HS Colt. Visitors frequently praise the course which is regarded as a very fair test of golfing skills. It has been used regularly for Championship events and was proud to host the Lancashire Championship again in 2015.
The day started with refreshments in the relaxed atmosphere of the 16th century Vale Royal Abbey Clubhouse. Whilst the rain did not hold off, guests remained in high spirits and enjoyed the day despite the poor weather. Competitors teed off from 10am and all enjoyed a full day of golf in a relaxed, friendly and picturesque environment, to vie for a place in this year’s national final at the luxury Five Star Lough Erne Resort, Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.
The final will take place on the award-winning Faldo Course designed by Sir Nick Faldo, six-time major championship winner, with the course characterised by link-style fairways, perfectly true greens and spectacular views of Lough Erne and Castle Hume Lough.
A buffet was served in the afternoon and guests were given the opportunity to wind down ahead of the prize ceremony. There were a host of subsidiary prizes up for grabs, which accompanied the main prizes of first, second and third place, with items from Porsche Driver's Selection on offer for ‘nearest to the pin’ and ‘longest drive’.
Congratulations to our winner Rob Lomax and runner up Rod Sellers on their fabulous performances and for qualifying for the national final. We wish you the best of luck and we trust you will have a fantastic time in Northern Ireland.
