TOMMY Fleet­wood’s Ry­der Cup hero­ics can serve to in­spire a brand new gen­er­a­tion of ‘Mu­nic­i­pal Masters.’

That’s the hope of Green Sefton af­ter the South­port born cham­pion helped win back the Ry­der Cup in a thrilling en­counter and made in­ter­na­tional head­lines in the process.

It is the lat­est suc­cess in a ca­reer which be­gan over 18 years ago at Sefton Coun­cil’s mu­nic­i­pal golf course on Park Road West, South­port.

The course, hailed as one of the very best mu­nic­i­pal cour­ses in the coun­try, has also helped pro­duce top tal­ent in Lee Slat­tery and Matthew Bald­win.

All three were mem­bers of Park Golf Club who use South­port mu­nic­i­pal as their course in an on­go­ing part­ner­ship with Sefton Coun­cil.

For as lit­tle as £8 a round, bud­ding golfers of all ages and abil­i­ties can try their hand at the sport and em­u­late the skill of the course’s past masters

Green Sefton cham­pion Cllr Ian Mon­cur, Sefton Coun­cil’s cabi­net mem­ber for health and well­be­ing, said: “We have all been en­grossed and en­cap­su­lated by Team Europe’s per­for­mance in the Ry­der Cup and to have an ex South­port Muni star in that group makes us very proud.

“Tommy, a for­mer Sefton Sports Per­son­al­ity, is a fan­tas­tic role model for our won­der­ful bor­ough and his skill is tes­ta­ment to the ex­cel­lent golf­ing fa­cil­i­ties which are avail­able to any­one.

“We hope Tommy’s Ry­der Cup hero­ics will in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion of ‘Mu­nic­i­pal Masters’ who can learn, de­velop and re­fine their golf­ing skills on ei­ther of our cour­ses Boo­tle.”
