It is very difficult to book a large group of golfers on any private course in Holland particularly on the very exclusive courses we are playing. Through our contacts we have managed to book for up to 36 golfers starting at approximately 12.30pm each day. On the first day at Royal Hague we have morning and afternoon tee times. Morning tee times will be allocated to those people staying in the hotel on Sunday night.
Accommodation is booked for arrival on Monday 28th and departure on Thursday 31st May and the package is based on twin or double share.
The 4 star Park Plaza Victoria Hotel is located in the heart of Amsterdam, opposite Central Station with a myriad of interesting bars and restaurants on the door step. The hotel is currently undergoing complete refurbishment which will be complete in March 2018.

Golf Course Transfers:
We have organised a coach to depart from the hotel each morning to arrive at the golf courses approximately one hour before the first match tees off. You will receive a schedule of timings in the Competitor Information by email and it will be on the notice board when you arrive at the hotel.
Daily Draw: The draw for the first two rounds will be on the website by 5.00pm on Thursday 24th May. The draws for the last two rounds will be made in score order. On Wednesday the leaders will go out first and on Thursday the leaders will go out last. If you have any requests for early / late tee times please make your request via the Message facility in your locker.
Caddies / Electric trolleys: Caddies and electric trolleys are not available at any of the courses.
Buggies: Buggies are very limited in availability at any of the courses. If you require a buggy for medical reasons please let Janet know as soon as possible by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We cannot guarantee to meet all requests.
Pull trolleys: Pull trolleys are available at each course but numbers are limited. We strongly recommend you bring a carrying bag as there may not be a sufficient number of pull trolleys at each club. We have asked the clubs to try to bring in additional pull trolleys.
Format: The scoring format each day will be individual Stableford with full handicap allowance. All four rounds will count towards the 2018 World Order of Merit.
Handicap: CONGU only applies in the UK so the events will be non qualifying.
Prizes: There will be prizes for the leading three scores each day. The player with the best aggregate score over the four rounds will qualify for the 2018 Tour Final. To be eligible to win this prize you must play a minimum of seven rounds on the schedule of events qualifying for 2018, that is a further three rounds after the Dutch Open.
To avoid any excess baggage charges prizes will be in the form of vouchers for the 2016 Tour as follows:
Daily vouchers: 1st - £100, 2nd - £70, 3rd - £50 Overall vouchers: 1st - £150, 2nd £125, 3rd - £100.

This is a great prize in itself but, in addition the runner up will win hospitality on Thursday and Friday at the Ryder Cup and the winner will win hospitality on the Saturday and Sunday.
Presentation: Will take place shortly after the last match finishes at Hilversum on Thursday.
Dress: No formal dress ie jacket & tie required.

Sweep: There will be an optional sweep totalling 50 Euro (approx £40) which will cover the 2’s sweep and the competition sweep for each of the 4 rounds. The sweep will be collected on Monday morning before play starts.
Evening Socialising: Experience has shown that most people like to make their own arrangements for evening meals and there are plenty of options within a few minutes stroll of the hotel. We will recommend a restaurant each day and anyone wishing to join us as a group is very welcome.
