Golf club

Become a member of a golf club, not only will you play more golf but you’ll make friends for life.

Now that you are playing and want to play more you might want to consider becoming a member of a golf club.

Joining a golf club will make it easier to meet new people to play with.  You will find plenty of fellow members you feel comfortable with and who play at a time and level that suits your lifestyle and experience.  Many clubs have thriving sections of men, ladies, seniors and juniors who organise and run competitions, teams and social golf.

The handicap system in golf allows players of any age, experience or skill to play together and enjoy a competitive game. If the club is affiliated to England Golf you can acquire a handicap and then join England Golf Members Benefit package.

There’s no better way to make friends in the sport than getting involved in the social life of your golf club. If you are new to the area or wanting to make a fresh start, perhaps because you’ve lost a loved one, you’ll find your golf club welcoming and full of potential new friendships. Most have a busy social scene with quizzes, event nights and an annual captain’s ball.
