18 Great Benefits of Being a Member!
1. Unlimited Access to the Course – being a member gives you the opportunity to play when you like, as often as you like and how you like, whether you enjoy the challenge of competition or a relaxing social game.
2. Competitive Golf – only by being a member of the golf club can you play regular official club competitions – for men and ladies, we generally have two competitions to play in each week of the season. There are also lots of competitions for seniors and juniors.
3. Choose How Much You Play – if you don’t always have the time for 18 holes, you could choose only to play 9 holes or a smaller loop of 5 or 6 holes. And in the summer, you can tee off at 8pm and still get a round in!
4. A Great Family Friendly Clubhouse Environment – our modern, spacious clubhouse is a great place for eating, drinking and socialising with your friends and family, with competitive value-for-money prices and great customer service.
