Free golf for juniors at Mottram Hall
As QHotels drive for more golfers
Words: John Dean
As part of QHotels’ nationwide initiative to encourage more people to play golf, Mottram Hall in Cheshire’s is now offering free membership to junior golfers.
Previously, the ‘free membership’ offer was available only to juniors whose parents were members at the club, but in an innovative move, the head of golf at Mottram Hall, Rob Warrener, has elected to open up the offer to any under–18s in the local area to encourage more to take up the sport.
Membership, which is available for juniors aged between eight and 18, includes unlimited unaccompanied access to the championship golf course for those 14 and over – under–14s must be accompanied by an adult member; 10 per cent discount in all QHotels golf shops (excluding hardware); 20 per cent discount on food and drink; and discounted green fees for guests.
Warrener said: “This is a great opportunity for junior golfers in this part of Cheshire to either progress as a golfer or learn to play at the top venue in the region. Golf is sometimes accused of being prohibitively expensive for youngsters to get into, so this move means cost is no longer a barrier and should encourage many more juniors to come along and play.”
Part of the multi-award-winning QHotels group, Mottram Hall sits in 270 acres of Cheshire’s finest parkland, one mile from the picturesque village of Prestbury – and just 15 miles from the centre of Manchester – and was the host venue for the 2013 European Seniors PGA Championship.
