If you need inspiration for how to entertain the kids during the school summer holidays, look no further than the AIG Women's British Open. It's a great day out with activities and entertainment galore in the spectator village, not to mention plenty of choice of food and drink and places to sit and eat a picnic if you want to bring your own supplies.
It also gets them out into the sunshine (hopefully!) or at the very least the fresh air, and is the perfect introduction to a game they can enjoy for the rest of their lives. The best bit? Everyone aged 16 and under gets in for free as long as there's a paying adult in the group.
Woburn Golf Club is a stunning venue, nestled in gorgeous woodland yet a stone's throw from the A5 and a 15-minute drive from Milton Keynes.
Here are our top five reasons why the AIG Women's British Open is a great summer's day out for the whole family:
- An introduction to golf. Whether your little ones have never picked up a golf club before or they are on their way to being a pro, they will love our hitting nets and putting area where they can practise and get tips from experts.
- There is free car parking on site, a short walk from the course. There's no need to book - just turn up and follow the event road signs to public car parking.
- Woburn is very easily accessible, located just off the A5. It's about a 15-minute drive to Milton Keynes, where trains run direct to London Euston taking 30 minutes.
- A front row seat to see the best golfers in the world. England's Georgia Hall is defending the title and local girl Charley Hull is another hot favourite. It's an amazing chance to see up close how brilliant these professionals are.
- It's a cost-effective way to keep the family entertained for the entire day. Adult tickets are priced from £20 for a single day, and under-16s go free.
