Are you looking for a great course to play either in an Open or as a member?
Here are some great comments from the day:-
“A big thank you to all at Stoke Rochford for hosting a great Golf Competition and as always organised with precision. Also would you thank your Captain Jeff Purdy personally for me for a lovely afternoon round with his partner John. Both of them were absolute gentlemen and we, that is all the Notts golfers, will be with you next year. Again thank you and the club for a great day”
J May (Norwood Park)
“I’ve been coming to play in this competition for years, wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Great Value and great format.
The course has played probably the best this year since I’ve been coming”
L Molloy (Norwood Park)
“What a great day and exceptional value for money, the mix of a Medal and then pairs in the afternoon is a really good format, the course has been superb
Looking forward to visiting again on our Captains away day later in the year ”
