Entry-fees are usually just a fraction of the normal green-fee rate, courses are presented in their best condition and there's always the chance to win a prize.
You will find lots of tournaments that include coffee and a bacon roll on arrival whilst some will also incorporate lunch and an evening meal as part of the entry-fee. Some will throw in a practice round or range balls on the day.
One thing is for sure; open golf competitions are an excellent way to experience competitive golf at different courses.
