PowerPlay Golf, described by many as golf’s version of Twenty20 cricket, is coming to local golf club Rothbury.
Played over 9 holes instead of the normal 18, PowerPlay Golf gives golfers two flags to aim at on every green. They score extra points if they ‘PowerPlay’ to the black flag, which is in an extra-hard position.
Keen golfers have praised PowerPlay Golf for being an attacking, exciting format of the classic game, in a faster timescale well suited to modern life.
The format will soon be seen on TV, and over 42 countries worldwide will be hosting events from 2008. The UK is the first country to get PowerPlay Golf, which launched in summer 2007, and Rothbury Golf Club is one of the first 150 golf clubs to become an Official Venue for the game.
Over one million golfers worldwide are predicted to become ‘PowerPlayers’ by the end of 2008, with national championships and big prizes planned in many countries.
Secretary of Rotbhruy Golf Club, Frank Brown said: “We’re looking forward to holding PowerPlay Golf events here. It takes half the time of a normal game of golf, it’s simple and exciting to play, our members and visitors will love it, and it has that vital ‘X-Factor’. We’re proud to be in at the start of something that – we believe – will energise golf in the same way that Twenty20 has for cricket!”
Visitors wanting to know more about PowerPlay Golf events at Rothbury Golf Club can call the club on 01669 621-271.
