Golf Festival History
Golf Festival History
1993 saw the official opening of the Bridlington Links Golf Club and with it the idea of a Bridlington Golf Festival was born. Representatives from the three participating golf clubs were duly elected and a Festival Committee was formed.
The appointed Festival Committee, with the support of the East Yorkshire Borough Council, set out to organise a golf festival aimed at attracting golfers of all abilities to the Bridlington area, with the main emphasis on "fun golf".
With this in mind the first Golf Festival took place in the May of 1994. The Golf Festival proved an instant success and since then has grown in popularity now attracting thousands of golfers from all over the country and as far a field as France, Italy , Dubai and the U.S.A.
A Message from the Organiser:
Anthony Howarth
On behalf of the Festival Committee I would like to take this opportunity to thank the three participating golf clubs and all their members who have generously offered their facilities and services to the Bridlington Golf Festival over the years.
Special thanks must also go to all the competitors who have played in the Bridlington Golf Festival over the years, without your kind support the festival would not be the resounding success it is today. We look forward to welcoming you to Bridlington in the near future.
