About the Farmfoods
British Par 3 championship

The Par 3 discipline is a scaled down version of golf that came about to help with training and coaching, helping to focus on basic core principles such as technique and tactics. Playing a Par 3 course helps to hone and develop skills that will stand any golfer in good stead in the full form of the game, and in particular works on their short game.


The Par 3 discipline of golf emerged as a training tool for enhancing core skills like technique and strategy.


The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship, akin to the Masters Par 3, has a relaxed yet competitive ambience with deep roots in British golf history.


Originating from the Short Course Professional Championship at the Palace Hotel, Torquay, from 1933 to 1973, it attracted legends like Alex Herd, Harry Vardon and JH Taylor.


Sid Mouland’s victory in the 1960s inspired the championships revival, eventually finding a home at Nailcote Hall in 1998, thanks to Rick Cressman’s interest sparked by Mouland’s anecdotes.


The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship returns to Nailcote Hall in Warwickshire this year, featuring it’s renowned 9-hole Par 3 Championship golf course, the Cromwell Course.


The hotel blends 17th century charm with modern luxury, offering elegantly furnished bedrooms with picturesque views of the gardens. Guests can dine in the award-winning Oak Room Restaurant or enjoy live entertainment at Rick’s Bar.


With full conference facilities, a leisure complex, tennis courts and its romantic ambiance, Nailcote Hall is a versatile venue for all occasions, earning recognition as one of Great Britain and Ireland’s most romantic hotels by the AA.


Tony Jacklin CBE, hailed as the most successful golfer of his era, left an enduring legacy for today’s golf stars.


His triumphs include winning The Open Championship in 1969 and the US Open in 1970, amidst an era of American dominance.


He was also Ryder Cup captain from 1983 to 1989; Europe winning two and tying another of these four events. He became the first captain to lead a European side to victory on American soil.


Jacklin’s leadership in the 1980s nurtured talents like Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer, paving the way for today’s European golf dominance.


His contributions earned him induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2002 and the PGA Recognition Award in 2008.
