WOMEN can use the driving range for free, do some Christmas shopping and enjoy some festive treats at High Legh Park Golf Club on Thursday, December 5.

The Knutsford golf venue is getting in the swing for the festive season when it holds a Christmas Ladies Evening in association with nationwide retailer American Golf.

Open to anyone, whether a seasoned golfer or an absolute beginner, the event is a chance to get in the Christmas spirit with food, drink, fashion, fun and hitting a few balls!

The evening starts from 6pm when, after a free mince pie and glass of Prosecco, women get free balls for the first hour to hit on the driving range at the American Golf National Academy.

Following the range time, American Golf will host a fashion show of the latest trends and styles to be hitting the fairways this winter.

Visitors will then get the chance to browse the on-site shopping and make the most of offers from both American Golf and a host of pop-up stalls selling everything from perfume to homeware.

“The ladies’ evening is a great chance for friends to meet up and get into the Christmas spirit,” said Jess Lilley, events and marketing executive at American Golf.

“For all the golfers out there, this is a great chance to use the range and have a look at what fashions are going to be on the course in the coming months.

"But even if you or a friend don’t want to hit balls, this is going to be a fun filled night with lots of opportunities to buy some presents and have a laugh with friends.”

Free range balls for ladies will be available from 6pm to 7pm with fashion show and shopping to follow afterwards until late.
