OAKSEY PARK Golf Club celebrates its 25th anniversary by hosting an Open Day on Saturday, July 19.

The course was originally opened by the legendary amateur jockey and broadcaster Lord Oaksey and in the quarter-century since the nine-hole course has matured into a lovely parkland lay-out with stunning views.

Extra tees have been added so that the nine holes can be extended to 18.

The Open Day promises to be fun for all the family with free junior lessons and a bouncy castle, plus a barbecue from 1pm to 3pm and fantastic membership offers.

And what better time to be thinking about golf than the weekend of the Open Championship at Hoylake.

Former Cirencester Golf Club professional Geoff Robbins as well as Ian Campbell will be on course to offer hints and tips on how to improve or indeed get started in golf.

Tee off times are bookable by telephone on 01666 577995

Post-golf the clubhouse offers a friendly welcome and delicious food – whether it is sunny enough to relax on the balcony or stay cosy by the log fire in winter.

Oaksey Park can be found just six miles from Cirencester, Tetbury and Malmesbury and 12 miles from Swindon or Stroud.
