Crow Nest Park this week launched an economical membership rate, designed to attract more players into the game.
More golf clubs are looking at new types of membership which allow new golfers to join at reduced fees. High annual membership charges put many people off if they cannot play regularly and get their money’s worth.
Crow Nest Park’s Flexible Membership allows new members to play up to 18 rounds of golf a year and, most importantly, to get a handicap. They can also play in the club’s midweek competitions.
They can play more than 18 rounds at a discounted rate and can play seven days per week, subject to booking a tee time for an annual fee of £330.
General manager, Les Holmes said: “ I believe that we are first golf club in Calderdale to introduce such a membership scheme. Similar schemes have been introduce elsewhere and have proved popular with those people who have either time constraints on their leisure time or who are looking for a value for money golfing package which meets their financial requirements.
“Not every golfer can play golf week in week out and as our busy lives become busier, more schemes like this will inevitably appear. I am expecting a high degree of demand for this new product.”

On a recent scorchingly hot day, club members Chris Mowl, John Stark and Ricky Brady took part in charity fundraising day for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis to play as many holes as possible.
They notched up a remarkable 108 holes and raised £1,200 from sponsorship and an auction. It was a fantastic effort and the team have thanked all who supported them.
Congratulations to John Stark who got his first-ever on his first hole-in-one on his 95th hole of the day!
