Golf fans book early for Open
ulberry Cottages, the holiday lettings agency covering Kent and Sussex, are already letting out houses in and around Sandwich for the 2011 British Open golf championship. It has reported unprecedented inquiries from people looking to stay in the area for the period of the Open; not only spectators but also corporate inquiries and the golfers themselves. “We have a specialist Open representative, Julia Sparks, working for Mulberry Cottages who has not only got essential local knowledge but also has let out properties for two previous Open championships,” said negotiator Corinne Wickham. “She has wonderful contacts, critical for securing good tenants, and is also married to a golf professional.” “Our website which is constantly being updated lists all the properties currently on offer, with those closest to Royal St George’s being at a premium. “For those who own property in and around the area it is an ideal opportunity to earn some extra money and rent out their house for the period of the Open, from July 9 to 18, 2011. Our representative will come and value your home and give you full information about what to do next. “Those properties which are marketed first will get the pick of the tenants and profit from being secured nearly two years before the championship.” For more details contact Mulberry Cottages on 01233 813087.
