Just got a note from the website that publicises "Open Events" about something that might be of itnerest in the absence of a Summer GM event to far.
Monmouthshire has a pairs open on Saturday 26th may 4BBB for only £40 per pair.
Newport has a Mens' Open on Sunday 27th for £20 per person.
Both inc food after and are about half the price of the Green Fee. Get some cheap B&B or the revolting Etap in Newport and its a really cheap weekend on two really good parkland courses.
