Windmill Hill Golf Centre is set to host its first professional golf tournament in nearly 25 years when the Thomson Tour hits the fairways next Tuesday.

The competition will see up to 50 professional golfers compete on the popular course in Bletchley, including Windmill Hill’s own Head Professional Mark Wall as well as professional Sam Buss.

Hosting the Thomson Tour is a testament to the dedication of the team at the centre, run by Milton Keynes Council, which has worked hard to bring the course and facilities up a high standard worthy of hosting such an event.

Milton Keynes Council took over the running of the centre in 2013 to ensure it could remain open to local golfers after administrators threatened to close it.

Since 2013 the club has grown in size and the quality of the facilities has improved greatly.

Councillor Liz Gifford, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Community Services (which includes sport and leisure) said: “It’s great news to hear that Windmill Hill Golf Centre is hosting a tournament of this stature.

“The centre is a valuable asset to Milton Keynes, enabling golfers to play on a high quality course locally.

“Good luck to everyone taking part.”
