Naas Open Week (Fri 2nd to Sun 11th August)

An interesting range of events... and an even more interesting number of holes for some of these events (including 10, 12 and 18 holes!). Visitor green fees vary from €10 to €20. Follow this link to check competitions and availability on a parkland that is badly under-appreciated, just a 20 minute drive from Dublin. Some cracking holes, including the 1st.

The 2nd at Naas

Spa Open Week (Sat 3rd to Sat 10th August)

Spa Golf Club is a bit of a hidden gem in County Down. Plenty of shape and rhythm, and lots of trees to get tangled up in. A good length too, at 6,500+ yards, so very manageable for players of all ability. What I remember most are the par threes - the 2nd especially.

Sat 3rd: Men Singles Stableford  £12
Sun 4th: Mixed Foursomes Stableford  £8
Mon 5th: Men Singles Stableford £12
Tue 6th: Juvenile Stableford £4
Tue 6th: Ladies Stableford £10
Wed 7th: Men Singles Stableford  £12
Thur 8th: Seniors Singles Stableford  £8
Fri 9th: Ladies Fourball  £8
Sat 10th: Men Singles Strokes £12

Green fee rates vary - as listed - but as for all of the Opens listed in this blog - excellent value.
