We have the tee from 1.30pm on the world renowned Hotchkin Course at Woodhall Spa. Itís up to the Buda Captains to decide but either 4BBB or some form of Greensomes can be played.
We have upto 8 tee times or 32 players available.
The Hotchkin course at Woodhall is a World Top 100 course and the Club are extending the England rate to all visitors. Recently in receipt of restoration work by Tom Doakís Renaissance crew. Iíve heard from several people the results are outstanding, which can only further enhance its reputation. The course will be in first rate condition as we are following two weeks of the English Menís and Womenís Championship. Hereís Seanís recently updated profile.https://www.golfclubatlas.com/forum/index.php/topic,63059.0.html
Saturday Dinner will be at the Hotel (see below) we will welcome Richard Latham the long time Secretary of the Club and heíll provide us with a historical perspective as to its importance. Currently £45 for a 3 course Meal with Coffee and tip. Not inc. Wine. Hopefully this may be negotiated Downwards. Money will be collected with the balance in July.
Buda has traditionally been 5 rounds and from 9.50am we have 6 tee times, max 24 players on the Bracken Course. As we are following others thereís little point going for anything other than some form of 4 ball match play. Those playing in the morning will follow those only playing in the PM.
This also allows those who only want to play 18 a day to participate, though I would say all the courses are easy walks.
Again we have upto 32 players in some variety of 4 ball play starting at 2.10pm.
Next day we switch to links
We have the tee from 9.30 am at Seacroft GC. NB Please allow 1 hour for travel (ignore Google as you have to go through the centre of town on a Monday morning0. I would suggest we play a round of Foursomes (alternate Shot)?
Afternoon start times TBC - but this is the opportunity to play the traditional closing singles matchplay (albeit going out in 4ís). There is the option for some to only play in the PM. Due to available light anyone playing only 18 will go out first in the PM.
Price includes a sandwich Lunch.
I love Seacroft (this will be my 4th
visit) and Iím excited to see the work by our own Clyde Johnson which is approx. 4/5 completed. This will hopefully see the course get the recognition it richly deserves.

Socialising / Hotel. Second Hotel added. Again attendees should book direct with hotels.
Much discussion last year was on how BUDA has become less social over the years. So this year we are introducing a nominated base Hotel. There are other options in town but the available rooms listed below should be claimed direct with the Hotel now. If we can confirm these rooms we have a core base.
Petwood House is 1000 yards from the course and has an excellent reputation and was the base for the Dam Busters pilots in WWW11. The Dinner will be there Saturday night and hopefully the Bar will be full Sunday night.
They do have very limited vacancies for both Saturday and Sunday and are currently holding the following rooms for us. (NB there are more spaces available at these rates for Friday and Saturday nights only)
3 NO Twin/Double rooms. Shared £124 per night
Single £87 per night.
5no Executive Rooms Shared £159 per night.
Single £122 per night.

Cont Elaine+4401526352411 and Quote Muldoon for these rooms at this rate.
They are holding them for us for the next 10 days and please lets make sure we take these up.

We also have rooms reserved at The Golf Hotel. Again Iíve heard good things and its even closer to the Club! The hotel is officially closed to the 6th, but she invited people to contact her via email and she'll confirm on her return.

Both the Clubs are offering 100% refunds or a credit for future dates if the Rules prohibit playing/travel.
How to do this is in the next post.
Due to Woodhall being so popular we will need to collect deposits by the end of January in order to secure this booking. I will do a further update on this nearer the time.
Except in the case of Covid (see above) please consider these as non refundable. If your plans change then your deposit will either reside with the Clubs or will be used to buy those attending a Drink at the Dinner.
NB The balances will need to be paid in advance by the end of July 2021. If you send a deposit, please put this date in your Diary as I wonít be able to chase everyone and failure to pay the balance will result in a lost deposit (see above).
Unfortunately, due to the current situation both Clubs will only deal with me as a single point of contact. Iím not a business so I ask that you read this carefully and stick to the requested timings. Again ask any questions you need to for clarification.
Summary of costs below
For those who only want to attend part please indicate your interest. This year weíve designed in a little flexibility but I do feel priority should be given to those playing all 5 rounds.
A note on travel to Lincolnshire
Woodhall is approx. 3hrs from Heathrow Airport and 2hours 40 from Manchester Airport. However September is Harvest time and the chance of getting stuck behind a tractor/combine harvester on the narrow local roads is very real and I can personally attest it will cost you extra travel time.
Due to the fact weíll finish late Monday and Skegness is a bit remote I have made enquiries about a hotel to stay overnight in Skegness for the Monday night and will up date the thread. ASAP.
Iíll leave it to others to recommend places to play on the way or subsequently.
