NEWS RELEASEFrilford Heath Golf Club, one of Oxfordshire’s finest golf courses, has signed a sponsorship agreement with English golfer Eddie Pepperell.
Pepperell, from nearby Abingdon, turned to the professional ranks of the game in April 2011, following a stellar amateur career which saw him capture numerous titles including the Welsh and Portuguese amateur championships. He also came runner up in such prestigious events as the McGregor and McEvoy trophies, and was a member of the England Elite Squad for many years.
Since turning professional, Eddie has had a number of consistent finishes on various tours, including 3rd at the Open de Normandie and 14th in the Open de Toulouse on the Challenge Tour in 2011. In his 2012 season openers on the Hi5 Tour, Pepperell has finished an impressive 5th and then 2nd in consecutive events.
 He will continue to play in some mini tour events in the early part of the year, before moving on to play a full season on the EuroPro Tour.
The agreement will see Pepperell representing Frilford Heath in an ambassadorial nature as an attached touring pro to the club, as well as displaying the club’s logo on his golf bag throughout the 2012 season.
He will also provide regular blogs to the club through their official website, keeping members and visitors updated with life on tour. Speaking of his new sponsor, Eddie said, ‘I am very honoured to be representing Frilford Heath, a club I know so well. They offer three different courses with excellent facilities so ideal for playing and practice. I am grateful for their support and belief in me, and am very much looking forward to the season ahead’.
Alistair Booth, Executive Director of Frilford Heath was equally as pleased to be announcing the partnership with Eddie, and commented ‘We are delighted that we can continue to support Eddie. From the day that Eddie joined Frilford Heath as a junior he has shown great potential, winning numerous club, regional and national competitions. We know he will achieve the same success in his professional career. To be a part of that is very exciting for Frilford Heath Golf Club’.
