Powerplay Golf coming to Skegness

Share this article

POWERPLAY golf, described by many as golf’s version of Twenty20 cricket, is coming to North Shore Golf Club, Skegness.

The game is played over nine holes instead of the normal 18, and is an exciting and high-pressure form of the sport, giving golfers two flags to aim at on every green.

Players score extra points if they ‘power play’ to the black flag, which is an extra-difficult position, often close to hazards such as bunkers or lakes.

Superstar golfers such as Gary Player, Ian Poulter and John Daly, took part in the first PowerPlay golf television event, and there are a further nine TV events scheduled between now and the end of 2012.

Golfers around the world have praised the format for being a more attacking form of the classic game, in a faster timescale which is well suited to modern life.

Mark McGrath, general manager of North Shore Golf Club, said: “We’re looking forward to holding PowerPlay golf events here.

“It takes half the time of a normal game of golf, it’s simple and exciting to play, and our members and visitors will love it”.
