Annual Sports Day
Tuesday 11 June 2019, Hawkstone Park Hotel & Golf Resort
(Note: mixed shooting events take place at West Midlands Shooting Ground)
Hawkstone Park Golf has three of the finest Golf Courses in the West Midlands, and BASA Members booking the all-day package will get the opportunity to play on two of them, the Hawkstone Course and the Championship Course. They are situated in 400 acres of undulating parkland surrounding the ruins of a medieval castle with the cliffs of the world-famous 18th Century Follies providing a spectacular backdrop.
BASA’s all day golfers get to play on the Championship course in the morning’s 9 hole Texas scramble competition and the 18-hole gluepot trophy sponsored by IMCD will be played on the Hawkstone Course with the traditional nearest the Pin and longest drive competitions. Golfers should provide their own clubs as equipment is not part of the package prices.
The West Midlands Shooting Grounds have been established since 1934 and the grounds are situated just 13 miles North of Telford in the heart of Shropshire and a mere 3.4 mile 10 minute drive from Hawkstone Park, the venue for the golf and the evening presentation dinner. The ground itself has the appeal of the finest golf course; a maze of beautifully maintained paths lead you to the 80 plus stands, boasting over 200 clay pigeon traps of the finest sporting targets on offer in the UK today.
WMSG is justly famous for its high standard of personnel tuition, their instructors are well used to passing on their expertise to shooting parties, from an experienced shot to a complete novice. The package prices all includes equipment hire, consumables, safety training and tuition. The morning’s shooting activities include archery and air rifles in a mixed session sponsored by Newport Industries Ltd. Registration is at 9:15 am at the WMSG where refreshments will be provided for participants. The afternoon’s activities start at 13:00 immediately after a lunch provided for all booked shooters in the cabin with Clay pigeon shooting and the Glue Gun Trophy again sponsored by Newport Industries Ltd. After a 50-bird afternoon competition, the shooting finishes with a final group Flush competition before heading off to Hawkstone Park Hotel for the croquet and the evening’s presentation dinner.
Croquet – BASA’s free to play event, The Omya Croquet Challenge Trophy, sponsored by Omya UK Ltd on the Croquet lawn next to the Terrace bar at Hawkstone Park, starting at 16.30 and weather permitting! Afternoon Golfers are advised that the 18-hole Glue Pot competition will not finish in time to take part in the croquet. The terrace bar overlooks the croquet pitch so golfers usually join the shooters for the climax of the competition once their matches finish.
Guests round off the day with a superb 5-course dinner, with wine included, at our prize presentation evening to be held in the Waterloo and Wellington Suite.
