£380 all inclusive in a twin room
£435 all inclusive in a single room (18 available only)

Single rooms will be allocated on 'first-come first-served' basis on receipt of a £60 deposit.

It is expected that all players are to play in all the matches. Anyone wanting to play only 18 holes per day should ideally find someone else who is also willing to do this before signing-up to this trip.

Please note that handicap certificates may be required and a club may refuse you access to the course without one. If you don’t have a club handicap, you should try to get a certificate from another source (we do have some out-of-date ‘spares’ that could be used - although we cannot guarantee these will be accepted). Most courses we play do insist on handicap certificates, although we’ve never actually been asked to produce these. However, I’m giving you all warning just in case a club decides to be really strict.

Those who have secured places can be seen further down the page.

Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club
Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club

Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club

Deepdale Avenue, Scarborough, YO11 2UE 
3 miles and approx 10-15 minutes from the hotel

Scarborough South Cliff is located just a mile south of the seaside town of Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast and, as such, has a links style feel to it. It spans 6039 yards over eighteen immensely challenging holes for which it offers a par of 70. Many people comment on the excellent design of the course which was thought up by esteemed golf course architect Dr. Alistair Mackenzie at the beginning of the twentieth century. Indeed, the course has existed here for over one hundred years, and, in actual fact, celebrated its centenary year in 2003.

Ganton Golf Club
Ganton Golf Club

Ganton Golf Club

Ganton, Near Scarborough, YO12 4PA
11 miles and approx 20-25 minutes from the hotel 

The original course at Ganton was laid down in 1891 by Tom Chisholm of St Andrews it seems and since then, every golf architect known to man has had a hand in redesigned at some stage; James Braid, Harry Vardon, JH Taylor, Dr Alister MacKenzie, Harry Colt and Frank Pennick to name but a few. The host to the Ryder Cup in 1949, the Curtis Cup in 2000 and Walker Cup in 2003, along with numerous other amateur events, it is a wonderful test of wit and nerve and among the finest courses in England. Gary Player once said that Ganton was the only inland course in the United Kingdom worthy of holding the Open Championship. High praise indeed.

Sand Moor Golf Club
Sand Moor Golf Club

Sand Moor Golf Club

Alwoodley Lane, Leeds, Yorkshire, LS17 7DJ  
68 miles and approx 1 hour 40 minutes from the hotel 

Sand Moor Golf Club first opened its doors to the public in 1926 to reveal a wondrous golf course, designed by the legendary golf course architect Dr. Alistair Mackenzie, responsible for some of the finest and most famous courses in the world. It gives marvellous views over the Exxup reservoir and the grounds of Lord Harewood’s Estate, just five miles to the north of Leeds. It is a well wooded, undulating course, with water to be found on many of the holes. Watch out in particular for the 12th where the fairway slopes down perilously close to the reservoir. It is perhaps best to pack some spare balls in your bag before teeing off!
