Par 3 Championship thriller hailed best ever

Star-studded on-course action matched by glittering gala evenings at Nailcote Hall

The 84th Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship saw four days of thrilling golf at Nailcote Hall followed by three equally exciting evenings of entertainment. With packed crowds, this year’s tournament was the biggest and best yet, reflected by the stars who teed up on the Cromwell Course. Notable victories included Scottish rugby star Max Evans and former Liverpool and England footballer Robbie Fowler winning the Celeb-Am titles, while Richard O’Hanlon claimed his second Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship by two shots.

Evening entertainment included a charity gala ball and players banquet, both hosted by comedian Dominic Holland with the proceeds of an auction going towards Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. At the opening ball, the audience enjoyed a live performance from BoyzLife, featuring boyband stars Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy.
