Information for Visitors
Cards and other information items are kept in the Green Fee Box near the corner of the clubhouse. A Course Safety notice is displayed on the door of the Green Fee Box. Please read this before playing the course. To check if the course is available for the time you wish to play or to book a tee time then please click on the Visitor Booking button below. If you wish to see if a time may be available more than two weeks ahead then it may be helpful to look at the Men's & Ladies' Fixture Cards to see what events the Club has planned.
If the weather is such that the course may be closed then please telephone the Club 01943 608759 for clarification.
Your ticket also entitles you to a 10% discount on all drinks at the Wheatley Arms.
During the period October 2021 to March 2022 whilst playing from the winter tees  then the Club is reducing its Green Fees (see below for details). Please note that if the ground conditions are exceptionally wet then a shortened course will be brought into use and a notice advising of this displayed outside the clubhouse.

Visitor Booking

If you wish to book a tee time, then this can be done on-line through GOLFNOW.

Visitor Booking
The Club asks visitors to book and pay using the on-line booking system via GolfNow. However, we realise that not everyone has  internet access and so  payment can be made via the Green Fee box set in the wall near the corner of the clubhouse. Before paying, please check to ensure that a tee time is available for you and that the course is not closed or in full use. Put your cash in one of the envelopes and post it down the slot at the back of the box. Please complete a receipt slip from the book provided, keeping your ticket as proof of payment as you may be asked to produce this whilst on the course. As the Club is run largely on a volunteer basis then the clubhouse may not be open so please bring the exact amount of cash needed for your Green Fees.

If you hit a shot into an area out of sight, or if there is a chance anyone might be in the flight path of the ball, or might be standing where the ball could land, shout “Fore!” immediately. This will help other players take evasive action.
