Forget the US Open. Forget rogue deer springing across Pebble Beach, the most exciting tournament of the year is yet to kick off – yep, the Swingers Open returns to London for 2019.
Pick up your putters and head for Swingers City and Swingers West End in October, where you and three of your most competitive friends will be pitted against some of London’s finest crazy golfers, who will all be hoping that lady luck shines down on them when tackling tricky holes like The Helter Skelter and The Windmill.
The crazy golf tournament will take place over two venues, with heats on Monday 21 and Monday 28 October at Swingers City, a charming course based on a classic English country golf club, followed by the grand final at Swingers West End, which brings the glamour of the 1920s English seaside to central London, on Monday 4 November.
The challenge is as serious as you want it to be – will you fall for the charms of the cocktail bar for some Dutch courage? And scoff all the street food from the likes of Patty&Bun and Breddos? Or will you skip the frivolities and tee off with the determined focus of Tiger Woods? Either way, rest assured the scoring is tight, with a caddy at each hole totting up the birdies.
After all, there’s a lot to play for – the ultimate champions will celebrate their victory with a trip for four to New York, including flights and two nights at the exclusive Hoxton Hotel Williamsburg. There’s a host of other prizes too, with a trophy and Tanqueray No.TEN hamper for the runners-up in the final, and a trophy with a £50 bar tab for the third-placed team.

In each weekly heat, the winning team will get a Tanqueray No.TEN hamper, plus there’s a trophy and £50 bar tab for the best individual score, and champagne and medals for the best team name. Every entrant gets two Tanqueray No.TEN drinks plus food, nibbles and a limited-edition Swingers Open golf visor (which basically makes everyone a winner, right?).
The victors will also be immortalized on the Swingers Wall of Fame and will take home the magnificent Swingers Open Trophy. Plus, like true golf masters they’ll earn the right to wear the coveted Swingers green jackets. Created by celebrated cutting edge Brighton tailor Gresham Blake, the uniform of champions updates classic British style in a signature look described as ‘Savile Row with a rock star twist’.
So, assemble a team of four and focus your minds. There’s a maximum of 15 teams per heat. The top six in each heat will go through to the Final at Swingers West End on 4 November. Tickets are £25 per person (£100 per team of four). To register email firstname.lastname@example.org
