Please familiarise yourself and all members of your party in advance of your visit with the Club’s requirements when you receive this letter.
We can only guarantee holding your reservation for a maximum of 14 days without a deposit. Should the deposit not be paid by the due date, your reservation will be cancelled.
Green fee deposits will not be refunded unless FOUR weeks’ notice of any cancellations are given.
For your food requirements, please contact the Caterer on 01253 723597, ext 25 and agree final numbers, at least 7 days prior to your visit. Should fewer members of your party actually partake than have been ordered for, you will be charged if catering has been prepared.
The Club reserves the right to cancel or amend the reservation should a Major Tournament or other Competition be arranged – in which case you will be notified and alternative dates suggested. Should a suitable alternative date not be agreed, your deposit will be refunded to you.
Payment of the Green Fee balance should be made in the Professional’s Shop on the day of play by either Cash or Debit / Credit card. Unfortunately, cheques cannot be accepted unless received in the Secretary’s Office a minimum of 3 weeks before the playing date.
On arrival at the Club, the organiser should call at the Pro’s Shop to collect the Security Door Code for the day, allowing access to the Clubhouse. Green fees must be paid prior to play in the Pro’s Shop, when receipts and bag tags will be issued (unless alternative payment arrangements have been made with the Office)
Visiting parties may play in three or four balls as agreed when making the reservation.
All play will commence from the 1st Tee and times allocated must be strictly adhered to. It is expected that there will be no “undue delay” and any reports of “slow play” or “poor golfing etiquette” may result in the cancellation of later times and/or players being asked to leave the course.
Valid Handicap Certificates are not required for General Play; however players should be conversant with golf etiquette and of a sufficient standard to complete their round in a timely and competent manner.
Play will be from Yellow or Red Tee markers.
Scorecards and Yardage Charts can be obtained from the Professional’s shop. Yardage Marker Discs on fairways are to the centre of the green and are themselves “Immovable Obstructions”.
Buggies and Trolleys can be hired from the Professional. Please contact them direct on 01253 722432 to make a reservation. No trolleys are permitted in the Clubhouse.
Buggies and Trolleys must not be taken on greens or tees and all directional route signs must be observed.
Any visitor with a disability within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010 who is unable to play golf unless aided by the use of a buggy may use either their own (and produce a valid certificate of insurance for third party liabilities) or hire one (and must sign a copy of the Club’s Buggy Policy)
Please note that the booking of buggies in advance is advised to avoid disappointment. Copies of insurance documents may also be forwarded in advance of your visit.
