Our fun and friendly – yet competitive – Open Golf Tournaments at a range of excellent golf resorts are a perfect way to round off your golf season or to warm up for the following season in great playing conditions.

Open to all male and female golfers with an official handicap… why not sign up now?

If the tournament you want to join isn’t listed at the moment, do check back to this page on a regular basis as new tournaments come on-stream very frequently, but then they can sell out very quickly too!

Each tournament offers the services of a tournament coordinator either at the main host golf course or tournament hotel, and they will work with you regarding tee times, handicaps, playing groups etc whilst you are on the holiday.

To extend your stay, why not add some extra nights and rounds of golf or “bolt together” a couple of events back-to-back?  The late November/early December tournaments are particularly suited to doing this…
