Sam Torrance opens Direct Golf Uk driving range

A week before the Ryder Cup, former European Ryder Cup Captain Sam Torrance OBE, officially opened the Direct Golf UK driving range at Beckett’s Farm, Solihull.
The John Letters staff player and Ryder Cup legend, hosted clinics with the public and spent time with media to support the UK’s leading multi-channel golf retailer, Direct Golf UK, and their ever-expanding portfolio of golf premises in the UK.
Taking place on Wednesday 22nd September, the day was made possible by John Letters of Scotland, who loaned their support to Direct Golf UK in their bid to make Beckett’s Farm the best driving range in the area since taking over the lease a few months ago.
Golf fans enjoyed getting up-close and personal with the 44-time Tour winner whilst listening to anecdotes from his time in the game, as John Letters’ Managing Director John Andrew (Class AA PGA Professional) and Sam hosted free golf clinics throughout the day.

With free golf balls available, a nearest the pin challenge and free video assessments, hundreds of golfers descended on Beckett’s Farm to make the most of the facilities and expert advice on offer.

Situated in the heart of the Midlands the Driving Range is a PGA Approved Training establishment. It has ease of access from the M42 motorway and boasts: a full custom fitting & work shop facility; 2-tier 32 bay floodlit Driving Range; John Letters Academy, 10 outdoor grass tees; 3 hole junior course; short game specialist chipping green; bunker practice area and a fully stocked 3000 sq ft Direct Golf UK Store.

A delighted Darren Price, Store Manager at the Solihull facility, commented: “The event was a resounding success. Having Sam here the week before the Ryder Cup was just fantastic and the perfect opportunity for us to introduce hundreds of new customers to the facilities at Beckett’s Farm as well as welcome some familiar faces back.”
