Paying Competition Entry Fee

For all Club competitions players should pay £5* into the clubs bank account**. This must be paid preferably before, but no later than the day of the competition. When making the payment players must put the date of the competition and the players name in the reference field, preferably MMM-DD-name, eg Jun-25-S Cross. Please be aware that to correctly credit you with the payment that you have made you must use the correct description.

Golf Monthly Article

We are delighted to share an article written by one of our junior members Lucy Bamford. In the article Lucy talks about the support that she received from the lady members at our club which encouraged her to continue playing golf when she was learning the game.
