Ken Carr – Academy Golf Course
In May 2012 we were able to add to the golf facilities at MDGC when we opened the Ken Carr Academy Course. Ken, a former member, left a generous bequest to the club and we were able to build new tees for this “Blue Tee Academy” course.
This development, on the front nine holes, has created a shortened approach from the fairway, but still provides the opportunity drive off, pitch on to the green and play out the hole on the proper greens.
The Academy course has greatly enhanced the playing opportunities at the club. It enables six or nine holes of “Quick Golf” to be played whilst still enjoying a good golfing challenge. It also provides a superb facility for Junior Golfers or those “New to Golf” to progress their new golfing skills from the practice area on to playing the course.
A Ken Carr- Academy score card is available to record your score, and we provide fun competitions for all ages to enable the “age group course records” to be challenged.
