Bowring Get into Golf Day!

Picture a beautiful day at the Bowring Park & Golf Course, where the sun is shining, laughter fills the air, and the community gathers to try their hand at Golf, to honour the prestigious 151st Open Championship, which was set to take place at the Royal Liverpool Hoylake. However, during the traditional golfing excitement, something new and thrilling awaits the participants: Disc Golf! Recently, Liverpool Disc Golf had the incredible opportunity to attend the ‘Get into golf’ day at Bowring Park, where the local community came together to explore the world of golf and its alternatives (Disc Golf & Foot Golf), and we must say, introducing new people to Disc Golf was an absolute blast!

The Get into Golf Day:

As we arrived at the Bowring Park & Golf Course for the ‘Get into Golf’ day, the energy was palpable. People of all ages and skill levels were eager to experience the thrill of golfing, and the atmosphere was filled with anticipation and curiosity. Little did they know that Bowring Park had a delightful surprise in store for them: Disc Golf. Liverpool Disc Golf Community where on hand to introduce all participants to the wonderful world of Disc Golf. 

Disc Golf, a lesser-known but rapidly growing sport, is a variant of traditional golf. Instead of using clubs and golf balls, players utilise specialised flying discs to navigate a course and aim for the target basket. As seasoned Disc Golf enthusiasts, Liverpool Disc Golf was thrilled to share our passion for the game with others and introduce them to this unique and exciting experience.

Welcoming the Stars:

Amidst the laughter and cheers, we were joined by some prominent figures from the sports world, including the Ex Everton-FC Women’s captain, Michelle Hinnigan, and World Champion Boxer, Natasha Jonas. Their presence brought an extra layer of excitement to the event, and it was heart-warming to see them embracing the world of Disc Golf with enthusiasm.

Known for her prowess in the boxing ring, she demonstrated that her talents were not limited to one sport. Natasha managed to score several aces, leaving participants in awe of her natural ability to master the art of Disc Golf. Her passion for the game was evident, and her genuine enjoyment of the sport inspired others to give it their all.
