  • First Annual 'Beat The Green Monster' at The Shire London on Tuesday 9th September, 2014
  • Beat your handicap playing Seve's masterpiece from the very back tees

BARNET, NORTH LONDON … Golfers, how brave are you? For your toughest challenge draweth near...

England's most intrepid golfers will head for north London in September to take on one of the country's toughest 'back tee' golf challenges - the Ballesteros Masters Course, at The Shire London.

Nicknamed the 'Green Monster', the spectacular and legendarily demanding golf course was designed by the much-missed Spanish maestro Severiano Ballesteros in the mid-2000s. It is Seve's only complete UK course design.

On Tuesday 9th September 2014, the first annual 'Beat The Green Monster' tournament will set golfers a simple challenge - beat your handicap while playing from the back tees, and win a prize.

And whoever posts the day's best nett score will be the first recipient of the first Green Monster Cup.

The event is open to amateur golfers with a handicap limit of 24. The entry fee of £50 person (fourball price £180) includes refreshments before golf, the 18-hole tournament itself and a golfer's meal afterwards, plus a goody bag.

Measuring 7,028 yards (Par 72, SSS 73) from the back (green) tees, the Ballesteros Masters Course features six par threes, six par fours and six par fives, with no two consecutive holes playing to the same par.

The event starts at 11:00am on the day (shotgun start), and is an 18-hole medal with full handicap allowance.

Golfers from everywhere are welcome, although players must hold an official club handicap certificate.

To book and for further details, call Ceri Menai-Davis on 020 8440 4009 or email golf@theshirelondon.com.
