    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.

    I'm looking at joining up to Playmore Golf this month and was wondering if anyone had a "refer a friend" code for us each to get 10 points?

    Re: Play more golf memberships

    This feels a stupid question but can you use the 80 home points to play away or is it only the 20 away points and any top up vouchers? I read it as being inflexible between the two but wasn't 100% sure.

    Best to ask, I'd guess not TBH. away points cost more £4 compared to £3 for home. you can buy away points only after initial membership.

    Carl you just need to get the persons email address who puts you in contact with PMG and you both get them, no codes etc, hope that helps.

    Unless they have changed things, you could only use your "away" points away and home points at your home course. It's one of the reasons (not the only) I gave it up as I was effectively buying 80 pts rather than 100.
