Golf with Monarch

I was a tiny bit sad when I turned 24 this year – it’s the last year before I officially turn a quarter of a century old, and feels like a bit of a milestone.

Monarch Airlines invited me to their #GolfWithMonarch event. If I thought golf was for old people though, I had another think coming!

N1 Golf is located right next to North Greenwich station, and has an incredible view of Canary Wharf.

It’s got comfy seats, and an amazing big city feel – this isn’t your grandfather’s golf course.

I was playing with Alina, Haydy, and Chynna, and at the end of the evening we all left with pro golf contracts and new glittering career paths ahead of us.

We did manage to get some great shapes going, and #CheckThatBooty trended*.

The tapas was really incredible – beautifully presented and delicious, too! Unfortunately the wine tasting portion of the evening turned out to be beer tasting, but by that point I’d had more than enough prosecco, so that suited me fine.

I was invited to spend the evening with Monarch at N1 Golf, but all opinions are my own.

  • That sounds like a fun evening, and worth it for the amazing views.
