Membership Categories

Our golf club offers a range of membership categories to suit different age groups and lifestyles. We are delighted that you have chosen to join us and hopefully you will become an ambassador for the
club and encourage friends and family to join. For all members, we offer a member referral incentive if any of your friends or family join through your recommendation. The current incentive is a 25% discount, based on the value of the new member’s first annual subscription.

We offer several different options to pay your membership fees:

* Monthly direct debit (spread over 10 months)
* Cheque or credit card payment at the office or over the bar
* Bank transfer

Full details of each option will be e-mailed to you ahead of your annual membership fee payment
date, but please contact the Club Manager should you wish to discuss these or change the way you
pay your fee next year.
