Golfers have teed off to help celebrate 40 years of the Beacon Park course in Lichfield.

A range of activities took place on Sunday (March 23), including professional tuition and a tournament.

Councillor Andy Smith said: “Despite the rather cold and blustery day, golfers enjoyed taking part in the festivities, including the professional tuition provided by Robert Rock Golf Academy.

“Our thanks once again to Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust that helped to fund the golf course in 1974, in what was one of the trust’s first major projects. It has given enjoyment to keen golfers over the decades and we hope the golf course will be enjoyed for years to come.”

Fraser Hamilton won the under 12 age group tournament, with Sam Brown scooping the 13 to 17 title. Darren Robinson won the 18-plus age group.
