NORWAY OPEN 2007
The Croquet Society welcomes all croquetplayers to the 2.International Croquet Tournament in Norway!
The tounament will take place at Hurum, at Holmsbu Golf Course 24.-26.August 2007, and since it’s a golf course we play Golf Croquet, single.
We’ll be back with more information, but it is already know possible to register your interest!
Hurum lies 1 hour from Oslo, and around 1.1/2 hour from either Oslo Airports, Torp (Ryanair,KLM among others) and Gardermoen (Norwegian, SAS, BTA, KLM etc.).
Hurum is an idyllic small place at the Oslofjord, restfull. You feel that you are far out in the country. Except from playing croquet (and golf), you can go swimming, take a visit to a spa, a boat-trip on the fjord, try your luck at fishing or just relax. Why not try Norway’s biggest shrimp-sandwich down in the hamlet!
Accomodation ranges from spa-hotell, through to a newly renovated historic house from the 1700 or so. You may go camping, but the campingsite is a long distance from the croquetlawns! It is also possible to put up our tent or caravan at the premises of Holmsbu Golf Course.
