Marland Golf Course tees off to strong start

Date published: 20 April 2019


A team open competition saw around 240 people descend on Marland Golf Course on Friday 12 April, coinciding perfectly with the US Masters contest.

The day, sponsored by RRG Skoda, was a real treat for golf enthusiasts, beginning at 8am and ending at 4pm.

The much-loved 18-hole course is now being run by local golf professional Andrew Terry and his business partner, Joe Jackson, for a 12-month period, after the council agreed to support their takeover plan.

Since taking over just two weeks ago, the duo have already made a number of big changes to the course, including applying for an alcohol licence and opening a coffee lounge.
