English Ladies Open

The North West of England is home to some of the UK’s best golf courses and is home to both Amatour and home to the Winner of England’s Best Golf Hotel at the World Golf Awards at Carden Park

Our English Ladies Open is 54 holes pairs better ball format. Included in the price is 3 nights accommodation ( based on 2 sharing a twin / double room) on a dinner bed & breakfast board basis and 3 rounds of golf. Dinner is included each night and a group meal and prize giving is included on the final night.

Carden Park is a four star luxury Cheshire hotel complete with AA Rosette awarded restaurant, two championship golf courseand a brand new £10m spa. Nestled in 1,000 acres of rolling Cheshire countrysideCarden Park Hotel is the ideal venue for our English Open Golf Tournaments. Conveniently located just 20 minutes from Chester City Centre, Carden Park offers the luxury of the city with a countryside backdrop.

With 198 bedrooms, many offer stunning views across the Nicklaus golf course and countryside. From family breaks to special occasions, we have a range of rooms to cater to our guests’ needs including luxury suites for a memorable stay near Chester. The standalone spa is the perfect destination for the ultimate luxurious spa experience. The Spa at Carden features a spectacular all-weather proof Spa Garden, 14 treatment rooms, outstanding thermal facilities as well as a restaurant, Elements, with views spanning the Spa Garden and the 1,000-acre estate. Redmond’s Restaurant boasts an AA Rosette awarded experience that is a must for all visitors and guests at Carden Park. With an additional restaurant and bars, Carden offers some of the best dining experiences in Cheshire.

Whilst the Resort is home to a Jack Nicklaus designed course – The Nicklaus ! – many a member would agree that The Cheshire is the gem in the crown of Carden Park.

Leading to a dramatic finish, the Cheshire golf course offers many challenges along the way with natural hazards to test your golfing skills. Situated at the back of the estate, the golf course has beautiful views across the estate and the Welsh hills beyond. The bunkers have been designed to flow with the natural contours of the landscape; you will need a sharp swing to keep out of them all! As you get towards the end of your game, the 16th and 17th lead you to the 18th hole set upon a cliff overlooking the full estate.

Famously designed by the great Jack Nicklaus and son Steve, the Nicklaus golf course at Carden Park is a must for all golfing enthusiasts. A picturesque start at the first hole awaits. Located next to the onsite vineyard and offering beautiful views of the Welsh hills, your game leads you around the front of the Cheshire country estate. Beware: there are many strategic moves required to avoid the hazards along the way during your golf game. The double option holes of the 7th and the 15th offer a choice of fairways from which to approach the green. Your game is almost complete when you play in front of the full hotel on the 17th. Can you hold your nerve?

Is there any Group Discount available ?

Yes – We have negotiated 1 free in any group of 16 for the whole package.

What does Minimum Number on Trip mean ?

Obviously a lot of organisation and expense goes into each of our tournaments so in order for any one trip to be viable we require a minimum of 24 guests on the majority of our trips.

Our trips are very popular so very few fail to achieve this threshold so we encourage you to book early to ensure your place.

Here’s how it works –

We set a ‘cut off date’ for determining if we have sufficient numbers for the trip. This is 180 days prior to the start date of the trip. This is because our resort and golf partners have blocked out a substantial number of rooms and tee times and if we are not going to proceed they need the opportunity to resell these.

When you book you will only be required to pay a £30 per person holding deposit – this is fully refundable should the trip not proceed. If the trip is confirmed but you decide that you no longer wish to join us you would forfeit this deposit.

If we do unfortunately have to advise you that we have not achieved the minimum number required to allow the trip to proceed you will have the option of continuing with the trip, but in the knowledge that the tournament will not be included. You will still benefit from the discounted prices that we have negotiated and will receive a £60 per person discount on the tournament inclusive price.

At 180 days prior to the trip commencing, once we have met the minimum number required, guests are required to pay a further deposit of £150 per person to confirm your place within 7 days.

The balance is then payable usually 45 days prior to the trip commencing.

Once we have confirmed that we have achieved the minimum number required for the trip to proceed we may occasionally offer ‘incentives’ to fill the trip. Rest assured that anyone already booked will benefit from the same ‘incentive’

What if the trip is cancelled after I have paid ?

Given the impact of Covid 19 on travel arrangements recently we have amended our cancellation policy to cover cancellation due to Covid (or any other major pandemic event).

If the resort is closed for the planned duration of the trip guests would be entitled to a full refund.

If the resort remains open but guests are unable to travel due to travel restrictions imposed either by the UK government or the host country government guests will be offered a credit against future tournaments at the same resort.

If guests choose to cancel for any other reason sorry but this would be loss of all monies paid.

What about Bad Weather

We have tried our best to plan our tournament destinations around weather seasons. However obviously we cannot absolutely guarantee the weather.

Our golf course partners will do everything possible to ensure that they course is fit for play following any adverse weather. It will be at the sole discretion of the golf courses to determine if the course is fit for play.

Green fees are not refundable in the event of golf course closure due to adverse weather conditions, nor other unpredictable reasons. If play is suspended for the day a ‘rain check’ voucher will be issued as a credit against play on a future date.

It is completely at the tournament organisers discretion to amend the competition rules in the event of any adverse conditions. For example tournaments may be reduced to 18 or 36 holes if the course is closed for any period or ‘winter rules’ eg lift clean and place may be put in place.

Refunds cannot be issued for any other element of the trip unfortunately.

What are the Prizes ?

We have negotiated a sponsorship package with each of our host resorts and golf courses which means that the first prize is the opportunity for the winning pair to ‘defend their title’ at the following year’s event.

In order to comply with R&A rule 3-2a winners will receive a voucher for the cost of the event or £500 per person, whichever is the lower. In order to protect our guests Amateur status there can be no cash alternative sorry.

There will also be prizes for the runners up, which may differ from tournament.

Each round there will be a voluntary Two’s pot. Again to comply with R&A rules this will be at the discretion of each player to determine if they want to participate in the Two’s pot. Those that do pay £10 / Euro10 on the first day to enter.
