Television personality and golf fanatic, Vernon Kay, will cohost a St Albans golf tournament on May 6-7.
Vernon, who hosts All Star Family Fortunes, will be introducing the new GolfSixes event at Centurion golf club.
He said: “I’m a huge golf fan, and avid participant, so I’m excited to be involved in the first ever GolfSixes event.
“I love the traditional format of golf, and I’m always trying to bring the handicap down, but this event is fresh and energetic.
“I hope we will be able to entertain existing fans, as well as attracting new people to the sport, whether they come along and interact with us over the weekend, or watch from home.
