The Finals

The venue for the Finals for 2022 will be Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa at Tarporley, on the 9th-10th-11th October.

On the Sunday there is a practice round from around midday. Semi-finals are held on Monday, normally starting around 9 am, and finals Tuesday, at a similar time.

We normally go into dinner around 7.30 pm both evenings after having met in the bar for a drink. Breakfast is served both mornings.

Guests are responsible for their own bills, including extras, such as drinks or lunch. We have a block allocation of rooms so bookings and payment this year should come through us rather than direct to the hotel.

You can choose a single room, a twin, to share with a golf colleague, or doubles to share with a partner - and they are very welcome.

The hotel has a requirement that all accommodation bills must be paid two weeks prior to the event. This means that, in 2022, I shall be collecting the amounts from all finalists about 18 days in advance, as I then have to pay them in one "lump" to the hotel.

The costs will be £189 pp, based on two sharing. Single supplement is £40 per night. For non-playing guests (wives, partners, friends - or all  of them) the cost is £159 pp, again based on two sharing. This includes two nights' dinner, b&b, though no golf.

Buggies for golf are available if you really need one - we allow them but discourage them. You are responsible for booking and paying for one direct to the hotel if you need one.

All extras (drinks, for example) are payable direct to the hotel before departure. We shall all receive a 20% discount on bar bills.




Winners of the two main competitions receive M&S vouchers to the value of £110. Runners-up receive £80. In the Plate events winners receive £60 vouchers; runners-up £40. All winners and runners-up  will also receive trophies. There will be small prizes for the winners of the Pairs Stableford played on the Tuesday which has replaced third-place play-offs. 

For 2022 there will also be a special welcome gift for every player.
