Academy membership

Starting at £595

Our Academy was set up to help new golfers to learn the game, rules, and also have access to the fantastic facilities at the club.

It also caters for ‘returning’ golfers, that perhaps haven’t played for a while and require some coaching and time to reach a reasonable playing standard, before committing to full membership.

It is the stepping stone to full membership and runs for a maximum of one year. Academy membership is open to men and women and runs all year round.

The following are included in our Women in Golf Academy membership:

  • Free loan of a 7 iron.
  • Free assessment of your golf equipment.
  • 15 x 30 mins 1:1 coached sessions with our PGA Golf Pro.
  • 1 x 2 hour lesson playing holes on the course with PGA Golf Pro and an introduction to local and R & A Golf rules including “Ready Golf” and how to complete a scorecard.
  • Unlimited access to the club’s practice facilities.
  • A plan to show progress whilst in the Academy.
  • Assessment by the PGA Golf Pro as to when ready to start playing the course with full members.
  • Academy tee booking times after 3pm on weekdays and weekends (1st May – 31st October) and 1pm weekday and 2pm (1st November – 30th April) at weekends.
  • Access to the course up to 24 times, which can be booked through the Pro.
  • Assignment of a buddy from the existing full members to be a mentor during academy membership.

  • Eligibility to enter “fun” competitions as advertised using blue or red tees.
  • Support in achieving a golf (WHS) handicap.

As an Academy member you must transfer to full membership at the end of the year but will be encouraged to join earlier if your golf meets the required standard as set out by the pro and if you want to play with no time restrictions and/or enter club competitions.

If you decide to transfer to full membership within the year then you will only pay “pro-rata” the full membership rate. You can only transfer to full membership if you have reached the required standard set out by Pro.

You will pay a reduced rate (10% off) full subscription fee for the 1st year only when you upgrade your membership*.
