NORWOOD PARK GOLF Centre in Southwell, Nottinghamshire already nationally recognised by ENGLAND GOLF for their initiatives to help ‘grow the game’, recently opened EZ Golf on their Par 3 Course using 15″ holes in association with TaylorMade.

“TaylorMade is delighted to be associated with EZ Golf at Norwood Park. The 15″ cup encompassed with shorter holes is a great idea that will bring a further enjoyment to the game for all ages and ability.”

Lee Farrar – Head of Field Sales for TaylorMade

“The Par 3 Course has been re-designed to incorporate shorter EZ tees and the 15” holes positioned on the greens away from the normal holes.It gives the players more choice and is ideal for beginners & juniors wanting to make the transition from the driving range on to the course without making it too difficult.

I first saw this in the USA at an event sponsored by TaylorMade, and to our knowledge we are the first in the country to be using the 15″ holes.I really feel this is going to be very popular, offering both variety & fun for all the family”

Rob Macey, TMAG staff player NPGC

“Norwood Park Golf Centre has shown to be one of the more pro-active clubs in Nottinghamshire, they put development at the heart of everything they do, which creates a warm and friendly atmosphere at the club. I have worked in Sports Development for nearly 14 years and Norwood Park Golf Centre is ‘far and away’ one of the best clubs I have ever worked with. They put the love of the game at the centre of all they do and in doing so have become a shining light for the region.Their latest EZ easy golf initiative will prove very popular and no doubt help grow golf in Nottinghamshire”
