As a way of saying thank you for the loyalty of our members during this difficult time and also to encourage new members to join the Club, there will be NO increase in  subscriptions for the year ending June 2022. Only a small number of golf clubs have been prepared to do this. This means that our subscription rates have been unchanged since the year 2019-20.

It is recommended that members take out specialised golf insurance. Information on some providers is available in  the locker rooms.
  • JUNIORS - Junior members have priority on the course on Saturday mornings between 9.00 am and 11.00 am and can play at other times when the course is free.
