York City stars tee up at Forest Park Golf Club

York Press: York City stars tee up at Forest Park Golf Club York City stars tee up at Forest Park Golf Club

MICHAEL COULSON and Michael Ingham are set to be among the Minstermen turning out for the York City Golf Day at Forest Park Golf Club on Monday.

A total of 28 teams are taking part, with former City stalwarts Andy McMillan and Richard Cresswell in the line-ups. Two past players teams are also teeing up, while York boss Nigel Worthington will appear at the post-round presentations.

The Stockton-on-the-Forest based course held the event for the first time last year and, since then, chiefs have been delighted by the demand.

Such has been the interest, a shotgun start may be employed in 12 months time to cater for the numbers wishing to play.

Forest Park professional Mark Winterburn said the course was in “superb” condition and a great day was expected. “A lot of work has gone into it - we have had five meetings - and quite a few people have been involved,” he said.

“That work has clearly paid off. The golf course will be absolutely brilliant for everyone playing next week - as good as it could be. Nigel Worthington will be appearing and that is one of the things that has brought the teams in.”

Course conditions are always one of the drawing factors for event and tournament play. But sometimes owner/operators focus too much on course condition and forget they must be out there booking outings, events, etc. to raise the necessary revenue to keep the course in excellent condition (which comes first, the chicken or the egg?).
