    Re: Play more golf memberships

    I'll add I spoke to the club I joined prior to signing up, and confirmed I'd be able to win if it happened. I did need to book comp days through the golf manager as they shut it to prevent you booking a four ball.

    Anything other than sat, sun comps I book through pmg. System at ucgc works great and its been great playing with some lovely people 👍

    Away points - I have seen some negativity but for us we are looking at it as a couple of days of golfing holiday so we think they are really good

    Nice, I'm hoping the give me an option to convert them in March. We do get a slight saving compared to green fees at away clubs

    Ramsdale, Derby was £26 £52 for both and I used 10 points for two so £40 (away points if you rebuy are
    £4 a point)

    Re: Play more golf memberships

    The thing is with the points, you are looking at this the wrong way. Congu H/C, summer comps at the weekend, and then a shed load of money to spend ANYWHERE YOU WANT. Use online booking things to get great prices. I usually play (well this year about ten other courses) so that's another £150 on top of course membership, whereas it could now be incorporated into my £500 saved on membership.
    No brainer for me, but I'm a flaky thing and still feel the pull of my course.

    Re: Play more golf memberships

    Downside is this stunning autumn weather and the last time I played my home course was 8th October, when my points ran dry, but they lasted from 10th Feb. And I feel buying more is a waste through winter.

    Just not enough winter opens to be had 😕 at least the spreadsheet looks healthy this month compared to last over £200 spent on golf events.
