Tommy teed off here: will you be next?
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.”
Green Sefton also maintain Bootle Golf Course on Dunnings Bridge Road.
