(to be read in conjunction with the Visitors Information Sheet)
It is important that you send the Visitor Information Sheet to your guests, so that they are aware of our dress code, general Club rules and exact location (we are not easy to find!). In particular, it provides the correct postcode to input into Satellite Navigation Systems (if they use our own postcode, it will lead them to inaccessible barriers - there are no onward directions to the public entrances at these barriers).
CLUBHOUSE: THE CLUBHOUSE OPENS AT 7.30am
Please note that we cannot offer any strictly private rooms during the day - all of the rooms may be used by our Members and other visitors, but in our experience this should not interfere with the running of your day. The only private room we can offer is for an evening meal in the Dining Room.
DRESS CODE / MOBILE PHONES
Please refer to the ‘Visitors Information Sheet’.
4-course Lunch: This is served in the Dining Room (non-private room but allocated tables will be provided, smart casual dress with a jacket, no tie), and is usually a Carvery on a rolling basis – self-service selection of Starters, Main Course (usually Lamb, Beef and Gammon), Desserts, and Cheeseboard (Coffee served downstairs). If numbers are insufficient to run a Carvery, a set meal will be provided. 4-course Dinner: This is served in the Dining Room (private room, minimum 35 people, set meal - waitress service except for Cheeseboard which is self-service, jacket & tie required). Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.
TEE OFF TIMES & FORMAT OF PLAY
We have 27 holes - Red course, Blue course and Green course (9 holes each). The courses you will be playing are stated on the Society Booking Form.
All play is from the Yellow Tees.
The tee off times and format shown on the Booking Form must be adhered to, as other bookings are taken based on these.
Competitions must be played as 3 or 4 Ball Stableford, or 4 Ball Betterball. Texas Scramble or Greensomes are permitted for 9 holes on the Green course. To avoid slow play, players must pick up if they cannot score.
Medal play is not allowed, nor do we allow 2 Balls.
TROLLEYS / BUGGIES
Trolleys/electric trolleys are available for hire from the Professional's Shop. We have some ride-on invalid buggies (one-seater, 3-wheeler) which can be hired from the Professional’s Shop (for medical reasons only). No other type of buggy is available.
NEAREST THE PIN & LONGEST DRIVE
We recommend Hole 8 (Red course) for Nearest the Pin, and Holes 9 and 13 for the Longest Drive. (NB the Pro Shop stock framed pictures of the 8th & 9th, but not the 13th. Longest Drive is not permitted on the 6th).
We can provide the pins for these competitions – ask the Starter for them on arrival. Please give them to your first golfers to take out, and ask your last golfers to bring them in - we are unable to take these out or bring them in for you.
The Club cannot provide any scorecard assistance on the day, however we can usually arrange for one of our Lady Members to assist your party. The cost is £20 per hour (minimum charge £40). Please book well in advance of your day.
BANNERS / SIGNAGE
Banners (maximum 2) can be displayed just outside the Clubhouse – they must be self-supporting. Limited signage can be displayed in the Clubhouse. All signs to be set up and removed by yourselves.
Our Professional’s Shop stocks a wide selection of prizes. Please contact them direct on 01932 843523.
