All four of the reigning British Champions are back to defend their crowns - Adam Kelly (Men's and overall British Champion), Ruth Burke (Women's Champion), Sean Homer (Senior Champion) and Will Donnelly (Junior Champion) - and a strong field of contenders will be lining up to challenge for the 2017 titles.

Sean Homer, Chairman of the BMGA said "It's great to be coming back to Strokes for our National Championships. The course is a terrific challenge, worthy of the event and the hospitality we receive is always second to none. Having all of our reigning champions at the event adds a nice extra bit of spice to proceedings - all four players will be keen to retain their titles whilst everyone else in the field will be doing their best to dethrone them! It promises to be a classic event and a perfect start to a busy few months as we see the other two majors - the World Crazy Golf Championships and the British Open - all take place in June and July respectively."
