Points are loaded onto your membership card. Each time you play you must have your card swiped and the appropriate number of points deducted at the Bar.

What is not included with Lifestyle Membership ?

Am I allowed to bring guests ? 
You are allowed to bring guests as often as you like provided that there are no more than 3 playing guests per member at any one time. Group bookings/ Societies can be made by contacting the Club Manager.

Can I play in Club competitions ? 
Yes, with the exception of Cup Competitions and matches against other clubs, provided that you have a recognised CONGU handicap (subject to additional annual fee) and that you pay the relevant competition entry fee and that you redeem the appropriate points at the time of play.

If I don’t already have a CONGU handicap, how can I get one ? 
You must play three complete rounds with another full member(s) who must sign your cards – the club handicap secretary will then assess your scores and issue you with a CONGU handicap following the payment of a handicap fee of £20.

If I do not renew, what happens to any points remaining on my card ? 
Unfortunately, you will lose these points. Points balances are not transferable to other members nor do they hold any cash value upon expiry.

Can I use my points for Food & Drink at The Golf Club ? 
No – you will be issued with a Bar Levy Card and will be required to top it up with a minimum of £50 per year to pay for Food & Drinks in the club house. 

What if I forget to deposit my points before playing ? 
Points  MUST be deposited before you tee-off. Members found on the course without having done so will have their membership suspended for 1 month and revoked if the offence is repeated. – The Club Manager and Marshals will inspect bag tags at random times.
