Golf Live is renowned for bringing some of the biggest stars in golf together but they won’t be the only famous faces on show at the London Golf Club this month with Radio 2 breakfast show presenter Chris Evans leading a stellar line-up of golf-loving celebrities at the event.
The One Show host is renowned for his love of golf and Evans will be indulging that passion alongside Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen and supermodel Jodie Kidd at the world’s leading interactive show of its kind, which takes place from May 18-20.
Other celebrities making an appearance include rugby player Austin Healey, Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton du Beke, ex-Arsenal and England footballer Lee Dixon and broadcaster DJ Spoony.
The famous faces will be taking part in a variety of clinics, skills challenges and competitions alongside a host of professional golfers, including Ryder Cup winning captain Colin Montgomerie, nine-time Major winner Gary Player and European Tour stars Thomas Levet and Pablo Larrazabal.
And some of the most respected broadcasters in golf will be on hand to talk fans through the action. Legendary “Voice of Golf” Peter Alliss will be joined in commentating duties by fellow BBC presenters Andrew Cotter and Iain Carter and Sky Sport’s regular and former Walker Cup and European Tour star John Hawksworth.
Visitors to the golfing extravaganza will not only have the chance to see their favourites in action but can also interact with them face-to-face as the roster of professionals – which also includes Solheim Cup winning captain Alison Nicholas, Ladies European Tour players Melissa Reid, Carly Booth and Henni Zuel, and European Tour winners Rhys Davies and Oli Fisher – will be mixing with fans throughout the event.
As well as meeting and learning from the big-name golfers, golf fans will have a host of interactive features to enjoy, including free golf lessons; club-fitting and the opportunity for a Golf Monthly swing MOT.
Virgin Atlantic flights are available to be won in daily competitions, including long-drive, nearest the pin, putting and events in association with the Seve Ballesteros Foundation and Scotland – the Home of Golf.
Tickets for Golf Live, which takes place from May 18-20, cost just £20 for adults while under-18s can gain free entry by registering on Golf Live’s website.
