Please Note:

As soon as we hear from you we'll do what we can to involve you in golf activities. Applications are subject to the approval of the Management Committee: where we can we will do this without waiting for our next meeting. Once approved, your details are displayed on the Club Notice Board and/or website for at least 14 days before formal acceptance.

All successful applicants will be invited to a New Members' (etiquette and induction) Meeting - normally held at 14.00 on the first Saturday of the month (for Men) or on a Wednesday afternoon (for Ladies). Attendance is compulsory for members seeking their first handicap.

Membership is approved for the current year and fees are due on 1st December but those applications accepted at the August (and later) meeting of the Management Committee will carry forward their membership to the end of the following year.

If you would like help in joining members for rounds of golf then please ask when you come to the New Members Meeting or ask any member of the Management Committee.

Membership gives you:

Official Handicaps
As an affiliated club, we allocate new handicaps and we maintain our members' handicap records within the World Handicapping System (WHS). WHS enables handicaps to be used worldwide. Continuous membership of an affiliated club is essential to retain an official recognised golf handicap.

Competitions
The club arranges a wide range of different competitions for its members which cater for all levels of ability. There are small entry fees payable for playing in many of these but many are free. Where fees are payable, they are usually contributions towards prizes or a prize fund.

Golf Insurance
Membership includes some insurance cover whilst playing. The primary cover is up to £10m of Personal Liability in the event that you are held liable for injuring someone or for causing serious property damage at any golf facility in the UK. Click Member Insurance above for more details.

Affiliation Fees
The club is obliged to pay these for most playing members and they are included in your annual subscription. The major element is the fee to England Golf (the organisation that is responsible for all competitive golf). There are also smaller fees payable to the more local Unions and Associations. The details are shown below.

Affiliation Fees

Some of these fees were not required for 2021 to take account of the effects of the Coronvirus epidemic.
