Stadium Golf Tour is delighted to announce that it will be bringing the unique ‘Golf meets Stadium’ concept to the amazing London Stadium in October. Stadium Golf Tour has been created to allow golfers the chance to play in some of the most iconic stadia in the world.
From 12-15 October London Stadium will be transformed into a 9-hole golf course, with nine tee boxes situated on specially constructed platforms situated around the stadium bowl. Golfers will then hit shots onto the related green situated on the pitch, with a self-scoring system from Eagle to Double Bogie, depending on how close to the hole they get.
The format allows each golfer to witness the atmosphere of the stadium, while taking part in engaging and competitive golf for groups of up to eight at a time. In addition to the 9-hole course, golfers will also receive access to “The Clubhouse”. The Clubhouse is the hub of Stadium Golf Tour and includes two state-of-the-art simulators, with a long drive and nearest the pin challenge, a chipping zone, and a long putt challenge. The Clubhouse at the London Stadium will be housed in The Boleyn, their homage to the high charm pubs of Upton Park. As well as the golf challenges, golfers will be able to enjoy a great selection of clubhouse classics and drinks.
“We are excited to bring this unique event to the stadium with such a novel use of the space! It has proven to be a hugely popular experience at venues across the country already and is a chance for golf lovers that have been to London Stadium to combine the two and have a great day out.” Said Graham Gilmore, CEO, London Stadium.
“We are so excited to be bringing Stadium Golf Tour to the London Stadium, they don’t come much more iconic than this; home to the London 2012 Olympics, world class concerts, athletics, West Ham, MLB games and much, much more” Michael Wiggins, president of the Stadium Golf Tour said. “The stadium really allows for some great tee positions and the routes from tee to tee will definitely take in some behind the scenes sights visitors don’t normally get to see”.
