Golf Monthly reader David Downham has been announced as the winner of the Wirral Golf Classic competition and will take his place in the four-course tournament at the start of October.

The event – a 72-hole stableford competition for amateurs – will be contested from October 1-5 over four of the finest course in Wirral, a peninsular placed between the River Dee and River Mersey in North-West England.

Located between Liverpool and Chester, contestants will play Caldy Golf Club, Heswall Golf Club, Wallasey Golf Club and the Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake, the host of this year’s Ricoh Women’s Open.

And it isn’t too late to enter the Wirral Golf Classic, with spaces still available for this fantastic amateur tournament.

For the heavily-discounted price of £219, golfers play four rounds of golf, with one rest day of their choosing between October 1-5.

The main competition is an aggregate stableford for men and women, with prizes for the top 20 players over four rounds. What’s more, there will be daily competitions and a selection of prizes valued over £3,000.

Local hoteliers, restaurateurs and bars are also lending their support, with great offers on accommodation and eating out to further enhance the experience for competitors.

A welcome drink reception will be held at the host hotel, Thornton Hall in Thornton Hough, on October 1, with the prize giving and drinks reception taking place at Royal Liverpool on October 5.
