    Any New Forest members on here? I have a New Forest voucher for €70 that I won in an open comp during the summer and I’m not going to get a chance to spend down there anytime soon. It expires Dec 31.

    Would anyone here like it for €50 to add to their account?

    Getting green fees for the course you manage to win a prize on is just wrong in my book.

    Who said it was a green fee?

    I agree. A GUI voucher for a lesser amount would have been much more appreciated.

    There isn’t much else to spend it on down there unfortunately. A member can use it for competition fees or buy balls in the pro shop as well obviously. Not much use to me as a non member and the course is over an hour away.

    So, any takers or will I just drive down and buy a few boxes or balls?

    I have one for 100 fro winning there last week. I will drive down and get balls at some stage. We can just do one run whoever goes first if you want?

    Is there no decent clobber or anything in there?

    No problem to you. I also had a win there this year :D. Wasnt an open though, was a club swap for my own place.

    Seems to play difficult enough for visitors. CSS of 75 (par 72) on the day.

    Spent voucher there today. My own place usually has an open on a Friday but was closed due to the weather so I drove down and played in their open today. Voucher covered comp fees, box of balls, Taylor Made cap and a bag of tees :) Scored a brutal 22 points :(
