The link didn’t work for me either. (Perhaps feedback is not wanted) I agree with the previous comment on slow play. The group in front of us had lost two holes. We advised the course marshal who had a word with them and then disappeared. They speeded up temporarily and then reverted to norm. Where was the marshal’s follow-up?
The twos prize was a voucher for another event. I can see how this works for the company but is not attractive for competitors who would like to choose where to spend their winnings. Neither of us entered. It seems a little ‘grasping’, like the old ‘company store’ .
Entry is not cheap. We enter a lot of open meetings and were surprised to find that their was no refreshment; not even a cup of coffee on arrival.

Attempted to complete the survey that was emailed, but they link doesn’t work.
Another well run event, as per previous experience.
Course conditions on the other hand were awful, some of the worst I’ve seen at Long Sutton. Both my playing partner and myself, were surprised to see the course open in such a state. Some of the greens were un-puttable. Definitely not a course for winter times in general, but this was not good…not the fault of the organisers obviously.
The pace of play was also a concern…given the nature of the event, being a “Stableford” competition. When every member of the group is putting out every single hole, attempting to put a score together. Bit of a joke!!! I can understand knocking in a 1 foot putt, just to finish the hole. But when the score is 3 or 4 shots greater than that of their partner, with no chance of achieving a better Stableford score, this really should be punished.
