Frequently Asked Questions

How does the points system work?
Points are loaded onto your membership card. Each time you play you must book a tee time (or ensure your name appears on the tee sheet if booked by another member or entering a rollup). The appropriate number of points are automatically deducted from your account.
What if my names does not appear on the Tee Sheet before playing ? 
It is your responsibility to ensure your name appears on the tee booking system and you have correctly booked for 9 or 18 Holes. 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.

How do I top up my points?
Top up points may be purchased at any time from the Bar; you can decide how many points to buy according to how many times you wish to play in multiples of 50, minimum purchase £50. If you purchase the higher bundles you will receive up to 50 Bonus Points.

How do I know how many points I have left?
Each time you play you will be able you will be able to view your balance within 'My Golf' on the Dorking website

Are points transferrable? 
No, points cannot be transferred to other members.

What is not included with Lifestyle Membership ? 
Cannot represent the club in official matches against other clubs and cannot play in selected competitions. Lifestyle members playing in competitions will need to redeem the appropriate points before the start.  

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 WHS handicap and that you pay the relevant competition entry fee and that you redeem the appropriate points at the time of play. If you wish to enter Peak time competitions, you may enter up to 6 in any year (competition entry fee and an additonal £5 is chargeable). This gives you the opportunity to meet other members, see if you enjoy it and decide whether to convert to one of the other membership categories.  

If I don’t already have a WHS handicap, how can I get one ? 
You must play a total of 54 Holes either as 9's and / or 18's complete rounds with another member(s) who must sign your cards – the club handicap secretary will then assess your scores and issue you with a WHS handicap.

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 Card and will be required to top it up prior to use for Food & Drinks in the club house.
