Free kids golf lessons and a chance to meet animals from Paradise Wildlife Park are all part of the family friendly fun at this week's Willow Senior Golf Classic.

In addition to the world-class golf, taking place at Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club this week, the Kids Zone will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm. There will also be a chance to win a spa day at Hanbury Manor in a prize draw.

The Willow Senior Golf Classic will see two Pro-Am golf days on August 22 & 23, raising funds for Hertfordshire-based charity, Willow.  Followed by the Staysure Tour three day championship, where budding amateurs can tee it up alongside Staysure Tour professionals.  These include 2017 defending champion, Barry Lane, who will by vying for this year’s £370,000 prize fund for the 54-hole competition.

The three day championship welcomes golf fans hoping to spot the stars and watch the action, and families alike with the Kids Zone running on the final two days. 

The previous Willow Senior Golf Classic events have raised a phenomenal £300,000 for the national charity providing much-needed funds to support seriously ill young adults during a difficult time. 

Willow Life President, Bob Wilson said, “The third annual event sees the continued partnership with Hanbury Manor which, like our own Special Days, offers quality time, bringing smiles to people’s faces. A unique opportunity for the whole family – with child friendly activities alongside the top level golf set in the impressive grounds of Hanbury Manor.  Funds raised are a life line for Willow, enabling us to support many more young adults at a time when they most need it.”
