Wrotham Heath Golf Club


The Open Champion Claret Jug comes to Wrotham Heath


Dear Members,


We have an exciting announcement!  Thanks to the tremendous support from our members at Wrotham Heath Golf Club, who bought tickets and hospitality for the Open Championship this year, and used the unique code, the R&A have confirmed that we have met the criteria for the opportunity to host the Claret Jug at Wrotham Heath.


Not only were we the most successful club in Kent in respect to the purchase of tickets, we also demonstrated our commitment to fully support the R&A ‘inspire’ programme, with a proposal to take juniors to the Open Championship. The R&A have also agreed to fund the trip.

Therefore, there are two key dates to note;

The Claret Jug @ Wrotham, Saturday 18th April. We will be holding a competition for members, plus a number of other events for members, their families and juniors from the local area.

Wrotham @ The Open, Wednesday 15th July. Our aim is to take a significant number of juniors, some from disadvantaged backgrounds, to the Open Championship on the last practice day, where access to players and corporate exhibitors offer better opportunities.


Both days, together with the planned media coverage, will not only raise the profile of Wrotham generally, but also help promote the work Dave, Hayleigh, Helen & Matt are doing with our juniors and provide potential recruitment opportunities.


We have already had discussions with IMAGO, a charity supporting disadvantaged youngsters and carers across Kent and we will be looking to involve other local organisations and schools as we move forward.


Further details of our plans will be announced shortly, but in the meantime, we would like to ask members for suggestions and ideas, particularly for when we have the Claret Jug on display at the club. Please email claret-jug@whgc.golf  or pop into the office for a chat.


Kind Regards
