Our application process is as much about ensuring prospective Members like the Club as it is us deciding if they will fit in with the existing members. Please take the opportunity at every stage to ask all the questions that help you find out about us. Whilst we are a very keen to preserve all that is good about the traditions and etiquette of golf, we do not do this to the detriment of modern standards and expectations.
The normal application process normally takes around 2-4 weeks. Once we have the completed application form there name will go on the notice board for 2 weeks. The applicant will be invited to play a round of golf with a senior member of the Club. Every prospective member will then be asked to a short interview with a member of the Management Team where they can raise any final questions they may have.
If there is a waiting list in place, after the applicants name is removed from the notice board they will join the club as a non-playing member whilst waiting for their playing members.

Proposer and Seconder
Ideally, new applicants will have a Proposer and Seconder from the Club, but this is not a necessity. If you do not know anyone at the Club please let us know when you complete the application form as it means that we will take a more active role in integrating you in to the Club.
