The Golf At Goodwood Invitational returned to The Downs course on Saturday 29 July in our annual event for members to invite a guest and showcase Golf At Goodwood and what the Estate has to offer.

26 members and their guests took to the course in the pairs betterball format whilst being able to try out different activities that are available to do on the estate.

Players arrived at The Kennels car park to drop off their golf bags before they were put in our unique woody buggies before the 11am shotgun start.

Whilst out on the course, there were various on-course challenges which had prizes which were supported by the wider estate. On-course activities included:

    - Double pin challenge on the 12th

    - Nearest the pin in two on the 18th

Members had the chance to try out something new with team members from the Clay Shoot around to give golfers the opportunity to give Clay Shooting a trial run. For more information on the Goodwood Clay Shoot, please click here.

Once golfers had returned from the course, there was a Trackman Longest Drive competition onto the Duchess’ Paddock.

A big thank you to The Kennels for our buffet breakfast which included English Sparkling Wine from Gusbourne.
