Are you looking for opens to play throughout the UK? Then you have come to the right place!
Since our launch we have connected golfers with thousands of competitions allowing them to play throughout the UK giving them opportunities to play some fantastic courses.
It all began what seems like a long time ago.
On February 16th 2006 our first website was launched. One of the directors had one of those Eureka moments! Looking online for opens to enter she realised that there was a gap in the market and a website where players could download entry forms for opens was needed.
As a keen golfer, and secretary of the ladies section of her home club, she was well aware of the old fashioned system of A4 sheets of paper filed in a folder and left lying in a corridor somewhere. (Did we really find opens that way – seems almost archaic now!). So the first on the market, we launched Open golf club competitions.
We wanted to make the site rather special for the golfer. It was designed to give both them and the golf clubs a streamlined website, offering exactly what it says. We did not want lots of unwanted adverts flashing at you! We wanted to make it easy to find competitions and provide a simple way to enter, just download the form and away you go. Today we still hold that simple core belief. We hope you find some great opens to play in , discover some interesting courses and wish you good luck with you golf !.
Golf Clubs register with us and pay a nominal annual fee for a Home Page with a photograph of the course/club, details about the club and course and facilities. All their opens are listed by us. If a competition is not filled then, as part of our package, we offer an email alert to registered players in that area who might be interested in that competition! As far as we are aware, a unique service! We work with clubs to do the best to get a competition filled. Entry forms can then be downloaded from our website or players can go through to the online entry option, (if that is offered by the Club). If the competition is filled the club can inform us and we can quickly disable the form so your not wasting your time entering competitions already filled/cancelled.
You can search the site and get forms for free we don’t put any barriers in your way. If you choose to login (using facebook) you can register and get competition alert emails and access to other features once logged in set your preferences in your profile you are in control.
Since the moment we launched the site we have had some great feedback and look forward to lots more.
Mill Green Golf Club has used the opengolfclubcompetitions website for the last few years to publicise its open events. We have found several competitors have entered events directly through hitting the website and it is very easy to send information to Diane with no lengthy forms to be completed and a quick turn around. I would definitely recommend the website as a way to publicise open events and maximise entries …
