Golf’s free for kids at Mottram Hall

MOTTRAM Hall is leading the drive to find golf’s next generation of stars after announcing free memberships for juniors as part of its new QFairway club – the country’s most flexible golf membership.

Providing access to 15 courses across England and Scotland, the ground-breaking initiative from QHotels is offering a wide array of benefits to youngsters eager to follow the example of world No 1Rory McIlroy and become a major champion.

Available to children aged 15 and under, all juniors will receive a free membership when they sign up to the enterprising new club at Mottram Hall, providing their parent or guardian also has adult membership at the same time.

The award-winning Cheshire golf resort will also present each youngster with a complimentary seven-iron from the MKids range when they join to practice their skills, thanks to its partnership with The Masters Golf Company.

Part of QHotels, the AA Hotel Group of the Year – which includes such prestigious venues as The Carrick at Cameron House in its portfolio – Mottram Hall believes QFairway ushers in a new era of membership designed by and for the 21st century golfer.

Jonny Chaisty, Mottram Hall’s director of golf, said: “Juniors are the lifeblood of the game and it’s vital for the long-term future of golf that they are given the best chance possible to play and develop.

“It’s our aim at QHotels to encourage as many people as possible to play, whatever their age, and it would be lovely to think that in 20 years’ time, someone is in contention to win a Major as a direct result  of the new QFairway membership initiative. ”

Launched this spring, QHotels’ new QFairway club offers golfers the chance to enjoy up to 50 rounds of golf from as little as £375.

The QFairway flexible points-based membership gives players all the benefits of a traditional club membership – including the facility to hold a handicap and playing rights for club competitions – while offering discount on food and drink, shop purchases, tuition, hotel bed-and-breakfast rates, and, most impressively, access to all of QHotels’ 11 golf venues.

Points may be used for golf, leisure club and spa facilities (where applicable), the driving range and even on buggy hire – all whenever and wherever the member requires. What’s more, unlike traditional golf club memberships, there is no joining fee, meaning that for a relatively small outlay keen nomadic golfers can now achieve their dream of belonging to a club, with all the friendly social benefits that entails.

The 7,006 yard, par-72 Championship course, comprising magnificent parkland fairways dotted with oak and beech trees and tricky, well-guarded greens, is broken up into two contrasting circuits of nine. The front nine, with its impressive backdrop of the 18th century hall, gently rolls over meadowland and offers the golfer many chances to make a score. The back nine winds through some lush woodland and is a much more demanding test of golf.

And, as part of a £1.5m refurbishment programme, Mottram Hall has recently added to its impressive facilities by opening a new clubhouse, Claret Jug restaurant and halfway house.
