We would like to cordially invite you to join your fellow TSGers at this year’s TSG OPEN Golf Day Championship 2019...

For those that have attended before, you’ll know that this event is THE opportunity for us all to meet up as a group and put names to faces....

Details of the day are outlined below but as always, we hope to add some further twists to the event between now and July...

- Two Tee start

- Individual 18 hole Stableford Competition (Men & Women)

- A 'Yellow Ball' team event

- Straightest Drive

- 2 x Nearest Pins 

- Nearest Pin (On second shot)

- Golf News - Guest Trophy

- Putting Competition

- Raffle

+ The Golf Escapes sponsored Golf Challenge!

There will be plenty of prizes on offer for all of the above winners and runners up + £5 of every entry fee will be donated to this year's golf chairty...

COMMUNITY GOLF

The day is no more than a "social" opportunity to meet many of your fellow TSG members and includes coffee & bacon rolls on arrival, 18 holes of golf, a two course post match BBQ (served at approx. 5.30pm) + prize-giving and the presentation of the now much coveted Halliwell Cup! 

Watch the Video of last year's TSG OPEN 2017!
(Sorry but due to adverse weather, there wasn't a 2018 movie!)

As always, there will be marshalls on the course and a photographer/cameraman will record the events!

Registration will start at 11.00am for a 11.46am start with an end time planned of around 6.30/7pm finish.

PAY HERE Entry Fee = £55


More information will be issued nearer the time but all we ask is that you have a full TSG Handicap Certificate or a full CONGU/USGA recognised handicap. TSG Handicaps can be obtained by entering 3 or more scorecards into the TSG system. For those without an up to date handicap will play for Golf News - Guest Trophy - Click on the following link for more details: 
www.thesocialgolfer.com/myscores
 

Guests and for the first time TSG FREE members are welcome and they will again play for the GOLF NEWS - Guest Trophy - but TSG PRO members will take precedence should numbers be tight. Please let us know of any special dietary requirements in advance.

My 3 cards will be in by Saturday - weather permitting...

I am type 1 diabetic so cannot eat lots of carbs especially chips/bread etc. other than that i'm easy.

Any queries do let me know.

Morning all,

As if you hadn't had enough excitement what with the Cricket, F1 and The tennis yesterday, now its TSG OPEN week!

Sadly, as always we are still waiting on greens fees from some of you, however, no doubt some of those listed below will drop out.

But perhaps you could do your fellow TSGers the courtesy of letting us know if are coming or not (PS No need to tell me you've paid, we know who you are!)

Those with entry fees out-standing are:

- Pete O'Hearn
- Ian Davies
- David Ziai

Please make your payment promptly, as we need to advise the club on numbers today!

Hi TSGers,

Further to Chris, Gary, JB and other emails I have received, please let me know of your guest's names and handicaps ASAP and any specific pairing preferences required on the day.

In addition, please advise us if you have specific dietary requirements but rest assured there will be vegetarian options available including Grilled Halloumi and Vegetable Kebabs.

Just to say we visited the course yesterday and can report a course in good condition and in full bloom and ready for this year's event!

We are now taking payments for the day. Please confirm your place using the link above...

Green fees required by Sunday at midnight, in order that we can confirm no.s with the club on Monday am.

If you are bringing a guest, please email us at theteam@thesocialgolfer.com with their name and handicap. They will be eligible to play for the GOLF NEWS - Guest Trophy.

Ps. TSGers who have failed to enter three cards into the system in the last 12 months (the team are checking!), will also play for the Guest Trophy.

Finally, no need for food orders this year - its a BBQ!
