2 for 1 Night
Friday evening is always 2 for 1 night unless the golf course is booked for a private event. 2 golfers may play for the price of 1! 2 for 1 night is a very relaxed evening. The concept encourages all couples regardless of gender. Often the evening can be busy, and we encourage golfers to avoid slow play in the interests of all golfers enjoying themselves. Always keep up with the group in front of you. 2 for 1 night begins at noon. If you have a threesome, normally the Hollies charges 2 green fees and golfers divide the fees 3 ways.
