The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort has underlined its
long-term commitment to helping to find golf's stars of the future
after agreeing a new partnership with nationwide golf retailer
American Golf for both its Junior Championship and inaugural 9 Hole
Championship this summer.
American Golf will stage a series of regional qualifying events
for both competitions throughout July and August at courses across
the UK and has selected The Westerwood - a member of QHotels, the
UK's largest golf resort operator - as an ideal venue to join
Under the terms of the partnership, the leading Cumbernauld
resort has agreed to waive any costs for holding the events to aid
American Golf's drive to increase participation in golf. All entry
fees for the competitions will be donated directly to the Golf
Foundation, the golf charity that is dedicated to bringing the next
generation of golfers into the game.
Paul Bray, general manager at The Westerwood Hotel & Golf
Resort, said: "We're really excited about being part of American
Golf's flagship events this summer and are looking forward to
welcoming the region's best golfers of all ages to The Westerwood
Hotel & Golf Resort."
Daniel Gathercole, head of marketing at American Golf, added:
"For both of our flagship events this summer we've been looking to
partner with venues that share our commitment to driving
participation in golf.
"The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort is very welcoming to
junior golfers, it isn't afraid of new ideas like the 9 hole
Championship and has been very helpful in getting these events off
The new collaboration with American Golf is a further
illustration of The Westerwood and QHotels' long-term desire to
increase golf participation numbers at a junior level.
One of 11 resorts across England and Scotland in the QHotels'
golf collection, the venue is part of the group's drive to get more
youngsters playing the game and this spring announced free
memberships for juniors as part of its new QFairway club - the
country's most flexible golf membership.
Available to children aged 15 and under, all juniors will
receive a free membership when they sign up to the enterprising new
club at the resort, providing their parent or guardian also has
adult membership at the same time.
The Westerwood 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
The multi-award-winning, four and five-star QHotels collection
offers championship-standard courses in unique resort
The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort is situated in acres of
spectacular grounds, with a golf course co-designed by one of the
world's greatest golfers: Severiano Ballesteros. Working with the
equally revered golf designer Dave Thomas, the legendary Spaniard
created a course that is as challenging as it is beautiful, as it
meanders through silver birches, firs and heather, offering
stunning views towards the picturesque Campsie Hills.
The signature hole, the par-three 15th - created by Ballesteros
and known as the Waterfall hole - requires a tee-shot from an
elevated tee to a green surrounded by a 60ft rock face. It's not
