New Memberships at The Players Golf Club 2023
At The Players Golf Club we have a variety of membership packages designed around the flexibility of your play. The modern golfer is more nomadic theses days and the COUNTRY membership at £100 per year (plus EGU) allows you to belong to a club and retain your handicap and play in the club competitions. Your annual fee equals 100 points which reduce as you play rounds over the Codrington and Stranahan points range from 20 to 64 for each round, when you use your points you can add more in 100 point lots at £100 and when you exceed £350 in any one year you buy 200 points for £100. Any unused points in the year carry forward provided you renew. Under 30 golfers (Colts) can pay £350 and receive 700 points straight away.The county card is now free with your EGU/GGU at £24.05 LGU £21.55 and allows you to play on most golf courses in England at a greatly reduced price. We have a small joining fee at The Players Golf Club and we give loyalty discounting the annual subscription after six years continued membership and if you pay in full by cash, bank transfer, cheque or debit card before March 31st and we give you another £25 off Silver, Gold and Platinum memberships.

Upgrading, Downgrading and Loyalty.
Whatever package suits you now, you can upgrade if you play more, we take into account the subscription you paid and if you join part way through our year April – April, you pay a percentage. At The Players we like to be fair, we don’t charge you interest and you can
spread your payments over 12 months. Direct debit payments are taken either on the 1st or 15th of each month. They often take two weeks to set up. Please be aware of the terms and conditions and remember that you are joining up to March 31st. If you downgrade you can change your direct debits to reflect the new pricing structure. If your circumstances change and you need think you will not be playing much golf you need to tell us straight away and downgrade to country membership for the remaining portion of the year, you can’t downgrade if you have already played 20 times or more. You can then assess your situation at the start of the new year. If you play less than 28 times in any one year as a Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze member we give you a rebate of up to £30 (£25 gold £20 silver £10 Bronze) on each round less than 28 which makes your subscription cheaper the next year, your rebate is only valid for the category you were in. Most categories of membership have cheaper rates after 6 years of continued membership. If you temporarily downgrade during the year you can go back to the category you were on provided it is before the start of the new playing year (March 31st) you need to tell us. Your loyalty is in the category you currently are and you need to be in that category for 6 years. You can upgrade directly to Platinum loyalty from Gold, Silver or Bronze loyalty for the following payments: Silver to Platinum £200, Bronze or Country to Platinum is £400. If you downgrade a category you lose any loyalty. You can downgrade to Country membership (min payment £100) because of an injury or valid reason only once provided that you have not already played 20 rounds in that season.

Booking tee times mean you don’t have to queue up for an hour for the tee to clear at the weekends or the embarrassment of bringing a guest and a long wait, that aside you don’t have to book and its often quiet during the week and off peak times. Online booking means you can book 24/7 from the comfort of your home or phone, just browse the tee times and choose a quiet gap. You can of course just turn up with two golf courses, the par 3 course and practice areas, you should find a space.
