We don't have any offers to host the 2013 British Open currently, so we're inviting people to submit offers to run this annual tournament.

In the last few years we've been to Edinburgh, Malmesbury and this year to Durham, so it would be nice to have a location in the South East for 2013; but we're prepared to consider any offers.

If you're interested please talk to any Council member.
