Golfers will find it's all par for the racecourse
CHELTENHAM Racecourse chiefs are offering the rare opportunity to compete at the world-famous track – at golf.
Players will get the chance to emulate the legends of horseracing, including 17-time champion jockey AP McCoy and two-time Gold Cup hero Kauto Star, by finishing their round up the run-in and in front of the grandstands at Prestbury.
Competitors will play in groups of four, male or female, and rules of play will be available on the day.
Ian Watkins, the secretary of the Gloucestershire Golf Union, said: "There are no winners, no losers, no prizes, just pure fun."

This sporting challenge will be followed by the Cheltenham Racecourse Challenge Bowl for all of Gloucestershire's club and county champions.
Adrian Kidd won the Bowl last year, after which Edward Gillespie, the managing director of the racecourse, said: "Golf is a wonderful sport to watch and play, and I enjoyed seeing some of Gloucestershire's finest in action dealing with challenges they would not face anywhere else."
Tom Workman of Stinchcombe Hill won the Bowl two years ago.
There is no horseracing at Cheltenham until the Showcase meeting in October.
