Becoming a member of a Golf Club has many benefits of which unlimited access to a golf course is the major one. Golf Clubs generally have a very active social calendar attracting a wide cross section of the community. For the more competitive golfer, there are many opportunities to test your golfing ability against your fellow members. A member is entitled to an official CONGU ® Handicap, recognised through Great Britain & Ireland and the rest of the world. Our golf clubs always offer a warm welcome to new members and visitors.
