Regional Qualifying Feature - Kedleston Park Golf Club
Kedleston Park Golf Club is a Regional Qualifying host venue for The 147th Open. Situated within the grounds of Kedleston Hall, it’s regarded as the number one course in Derbyshire.
Five-time Champion Golfer, James Braid designed the parkland layout, but the second World War delayed the project until 1946 when golf architects Colt, Alison and Morrison updated the design and began construction.
Regional Qualifying will take place at the golf club on Monday 25 June 2018 with places available for Final Qualifying. It’s the first time Kedleston Park will host qualifying for golf’s oldest major and 2018 is set to be busy with the club also hosting the English Boys U16 Amateur strokeplay in July.
Kedleston Park Chairman Ian Neal said “2018 is shaping up to be a benchmark year for Kedleston Park.”
Renowned architects Mackenzie and Ebert recently enhanced the course's strategic demands by reworking many of the course's bunkers, mounds and greenside complexes. The course can play at 7,008 yards in full with the par varying from 70 to 72.
Kedleston Park member Bradley Moore was included in the initial GB&I team for the 2017 Walker Cup and was part of the England Golf elite team that included 2017 Open Silver Medallist Alfie Plant.
