Slingsby Golf Academy

We are proud to be an Official Sponsor of the BMW PGA Championship and to celebrate we stepped up our activities in 2021 with the launch of the Slingsby Golf Academy.

Our celebrity Golf Academy set out to encourage and inspire more females to take to up the sport this summer while championing the social side of the game.

You can view the full series with Fleur East, Helen Skelton, Natalie Pinkham and Bela Shah over on our YouTube.

With the support of Callaway Europe, we challenged four celebrity cadets to take a swing at the sport in an exciting novice to competitor series. Our cadets had just 6 months to learn how to play golf before competing against each other in a nerve-wracking play off to qualify for a spot in the prestigious BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am at Wentworth Golf Club.

The BMW PGA Championship is one of the most high-profile tournaments on the European Tour. Year-on-year, celebrities from the world of sport, film, music and broadcast come together to play the Championship’s star-studded Pro-Am.
