Worth a listen to see how FootGolf is progressing in Suffolk. On BBC Radio Suffolk's Graeme Mac sport show Graeme chatted with the Suffolk FootGolf Development Manager, Dan Ferretti about the growth of FootGolf in Suffolk.
A regular at the Stonham FootGolf Course, Pele Heydon won the first event of the 2015 season with a tremendous 52, 6 under par to win by 2 shots. His course record equaling score included 7 birdies and he now he leads the new Suffolk Rankings table with 50 points.
In 2nd place were Markus Pfetzing and Darren Wheat who both scored a 4 under par 54. Markus managed a fantastic 6 under par for his last nine holes which included a hole in one on the 17th.
The event attracted just under 60 players from all over the region which included 34 men, 17 ladies and 8 juniors. It was great to have the 17 ladies who played in the event as part of #thisgirlcan campaign. This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It's a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it or how they look.
All the results from this event are available on the national FootGolf site www.ukfootgolf.com and more images on facebook StonhamBarnsGolf.
The next ranking tournament will be on the Sunday 12th April with a 1.00pm start. Everyone is welcome, juniors, ladies and men. Anyone interested in playing please contact Stonham Barns FootGolf Course. Tel 01449 711545 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
