Stars to the fore…

Nailcote Hall hosts on-course action and evening entertainment as championship comes to town 

Wet and blustery conditions tested golfers competing in the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship at Nailcote Hall. PGA EuroPro Tour winner Andrew Marshall scooped the €50,000 first prize and said: “Hit the green, make a three, that was my plan really – and I’ve ended up winning. I’m delighted to take home the title.”

Other winners included Mark Mouland and Peter Fowler in the Super Seniors pair event, William Bailey in the highly-contested Norma C Herd trophy and former Aston Villa ace Lee Hendrie who lifted the celebrity title on the final day of play.

This year’s tournament played host to a number of famous faces, including ex-England football star Teddy Sheringham and Strictly Come Dancing favourite Len Goodman, alongside golfing legends Ian Woosnam and Paul Lawrie.
