Mother’s Day Sunday 26th March 2017

This year, Mother’s Day in the UK will fall on Sunday 26th March. If you haven’t yet got the date in your diary, or if you’d forgotten altogether don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to plan something truly special and show your mum just how much you care.

Treat  your mum to a lunch or dinner with all her loved ones.
A great way to celebrate Mother’s Day is to take your mum out for a delicious meal. At the King William, we’re always busy on Mother’s Day allowing all the mums to enjoy their families to the full without doing any of the work. Food is served all day from noon to 9pm, Do reserve your favourite spot to avoid disappointment. If you want to make a weekend of it, you could even book yourself and your mum a twin-room and spend a day or two exploring the stunning countryside that surrounds the Inn.

Get some fresh air – go walking
On Mother’s Day, all most mums want is to spend a bit of time with their family. Taking your mum out for a walk in the fresh air is a lovely way to spend the day together. Thanks to the UK’s excellent network of footpaths, you’re never too far from a country walk. If you’re staying at the King William – or stopping in for lunch – we’ll be able to give you tips on the most beautiful walks in the area.

Go on a day trip
Norfolk is home to a number of pretty market towns and seaside settlements. A day out in one of these characterful locations will give you the chance to go antique hunting, sample some of the region’s famous cuisine and explore one of the most beautiful corners of the UK. The nearby coastal villages,  the world renowned Sandringham and the county city of Norwich are all well worth a day’s exploration.

SUMMER HIGHLIGHT: The King William Hosts Carris Trophy Golf Talent!
Golfers3The Carris Trophy (British Boys Championship) was held on the manicured golf links of hunstanton Golf Club from 19/7 to 22/7. With 160 of the best young golfers from the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Belgium competing for the prestigious Carris Trophy over 4 days, the quality of golf produced by these young golfers was truly outstanding.

The King William was delighted to host 3 aspiring young golfers during their time at Hunstanton. Pleasingly, all three players made the ‘cut’ with the top 60 players progressing to the 3rd and 4th days. From Lille, France we welcomed Mathieu Caron and his father Christoph. With scores of 74, 76, 78 and 74 Mathieu finished a highly creditable 50th. In 15th position was a young Englishman from Swindon, Jake Bolton, with his father Mark. Jake shot 71, 77, 71, 70 and was delighted to hear that he had been selected for England’s forthcoming Under 18’s Tour to Canada. Congratulations Jake.

Topping the lot young Oscar Teiffel from Gothenberg, Sweden, started the final round in joint first position and ended the tournament in third place. On his bag was his younger brother whilst his father Peter walked all 4 rounds – sometimes in the presence of Nick and our elder Labrador, Max. A fantastic performance by Oscar with scores of 71, 69, 68 and 72 leaving him on 8 Under Par for the Tournament.

It was an absolute pleasure to hoste three such talented and modest young golfers (and their dad’s) . I hope that one day we can welcome them back to The King William and Hunstanton GC. Names to look out for !!
