    Mizuno Golf Pairs

    Having a look over these and some of them look pretty good. Some however are a bit expensive.

    Anyone here looking at going in on some of these events?

    Re: Mizuno Golf Pairs

    Have looked at it before, but looks to be a right rip off.. Trump Aberdeen and Montrose for instance.

    Montrose £37.50, Trump £155 for a Scottish resident on this its £599, whats the other £400 for no mention of accommodation and a free GG rain suit?

    Disagree on the rip off comment.

    yes some are pricey compared to others.

    They had an event at our place last year and compared to the normal green fee it was more expensive but it had easily sold out as the year had 240 playing in it.

    Had as a very good tournament feel to it as well.

    Some events are are very good value for money.

    Royal Lytham at £150 each compared the normal fee is good.
    10 hcp and rising.

    So you don't think Trump Aberdeen and Motrose is a rip off at £599 then?

    admittedly most of the others are less expensive esp if its per pair, but how much is it for an Open at Woodhall?

    The price is per pair so the £240 is per pair so that makes it cheaper than the full price

    All the events from what I recall are very well priced

    Even the Scotland one is £600 per pair so thatís £300 each for three rounds

    The Wales one is superb value same for the East Anglia

    Woodhall at £90 each is great value

    Only one is poor value - the Brabazon

    You forget to mention Panmure in that.

    trump for non residents is £240 plus isnít it so yes if you are a local you get a better price. Just like we did when we had the forum meet there.

    £60 to play Montrose and Panmure.

    I noticed earlier that you donít like the belfry which is your right. But how is it not value (based on normal price). Itís still cheaper than laying to of their green fees is it not?
