With Father’s Day just around the corner, American Golf is celebrating the special bond that comes from Fathers playing golf with their children with the launch of its Golf With Dad competition.
The competition, which gives Father and their children the chance to win £300 of American Golf vouchers, is being launched in collaboration with Andy and Riley Banks the curators and stars of Instagram channel @Father_Son_Golf. Andy and Rliey’s channel has followed their golfing journey for the past 3 years, gaining a cult following of golfers who enjoy watching how their game progresses alongside the special bond they have developed through golf.
While Andy introduced Riley to golf to share in the game he loved, he has been surprised that the game and their Instagram channel has given them so much more. He said, “Just getting away from the stresses of modern life and playing golf with your son or daughter is very special and something I will never take for granted. These moments are something we will treasure forever and can honestly say our relationship as father and son has flourished because of the game. Looking back on our journey you realise golf is more than just a game; it teaches essential life skills. I am extremely grateful I get to play golf with my ‘little best mate.’”
It’s the spirit of this bond that American Golf hopes to spread across its channels over the weeks leading to Father’s Day. From Friday 5th June, the nationwide retailer wants Father and their Daughters or Sons to take a picture of themselves playing golf together on the course, at the range or even in the garden, and post on their social feed tagging @American_golf @father_son_golf and Hashtag #GolfWithDad. American Golf will then share their favourites and on 26th June, Andy and Riley will choose the winner of £300 American Golf vouchers.
Age is no limit to entry, so if you’re 8 or 80 get snapping and get involved. As Riley concludes, ‘Golf With Dad’ can be so much more than just the game and that’s a message worth sharing.
“I am always so excited to play golf against Dad. We have so much fun when we play against each other and it’s even better when I beat him - which is most of the time! Dad helps me so much with my development in the game and I am extremely grateful for all his help. Golf with Dad is just the best!!”
