Get into golf with our Taster Memberships

It's the time of year again when we will be putting on a recruitment drive in order to attract new people to the golf and to the club. Our Taster Memberships have been very successful in the past and our new Head Professional Matt Daley is very keen to get started with the 2019 packages.

Aimed at golf novices and beginners, our taster memberships are a perfect way to get a feel for golf, with a block of group lessons from Matt Daley, 800 driving range balls and two months’ of golf. It’s a crash course in golf!

After the three month course has finished each person will have a good understanding of golf and will have improved by a good margin. We can almost guarantee too that they will want to continue further and play as much golf as they can!

The course of lessons will involve a general understanding of the rules and etiquette of the game and then Matt will move on to the golf swing, short game, and putting. All the while keeping fun and laughs as the main priority!

As part of the lessons and the range work, Taster members will not be required to have their own equipment or even have any golf apparel, they can just turn up in whatever they feel comfortable in and be ready to enjoy themselves and meet new people!

If you’ve been looking for a new hobby, or if you’ve always fancied a crack at golf but never got round to it, now is the perfect time to start with our Taster Memberships! Pop into our clubhouse or download an application form to apply now!

NEW RULES from 1st January 2019 - Everything you need to know

The new Rules of Golf from the R&A and USGA come into force from 1st January 2019 and it is important that golfers know about the changes if they are going to be playing competitively.

This helpful video below gives you a fantastic overview of the 20 biggest changes in the rules, which will be the most commonly occurring in your game. Make sure you give this video a watch before the 1st of January if you are unsure of any of the new rules.

Rules not being adopted by Burstwick

Some of the new rules include the options for local rules to be enforced by the Committee at each club, and currently the Committee has no plans to enforce any of these, this includes and alternative penalty procedure for an out of bounds or lost ball; we will remain with the traditional method of going back to where the shot was last played from under a one stroke penalty.

If you have any questions on the new rules please don’t hesitate to speak to either Alan or Matt at the club for any help or clarification.

Taking Up Golf isn't as Expensive as People Might Think

It's amazing how many people we speak to that still have the image of golf being an expensive hobby, and 20 years ago you could have argued that this was true. Thankfully nowadays golf has opened its doors to the masses and because of this the price of equipment and memberships has become very competitive, meaning that you don't have to be a company director or lawyer to take up the game.

Right now you can pick up clubs for an excellent price, as an example we supply Ben Sayers M15 (see image) full packages for just £199, and they include a bag and full set of clubs including driver, woods, irons and putter.

Shoes can be purchased as little as £40 and all you need to play on the course are some smart trousers or shorts with a polo shirt and you're away!

When it comes to paying for rounds of golf these can be had with our Green Card Scheme from as little as £8 for 9 holes or £12 for 18 holes, and then as you progress and play more, golf memberships for an adult can be had for as little as £38 per month 5 day (Mon-Fri) or £48 a month for 7 day. That's less than many people's gym membership or phone contract!

Don't forget our friendly staff are always on hand to give you advice about taking up the game. No matter what you're wondering, just ask us!

Golf is not an elite sport, it's a sport for the masses.

We also offer great value family memberships and group coaching too, so why not look at taking up a new hobby now and pop in?
