Burnley Golf Course competition winners announced

During May we asked golfers to share their experiences at Burnley by uploading a photo or video to social media, and we were blown away by the quality of the entries!

The winners have been drawn at random; congratulations to Paul Carson and Girl Golfer on Par who both shared fantastic photos on Instagram.

A big thank you to everyone who entered and stay tuned for more competitions coming up soon!
