There is a road on left, just a few minutes drive from the roundabout. The exit off the A 229 is just after a layby and next to a bus shelter. The golf club is a short drive down the lane.  –   There is plenty of parking.

Time to socialise

We know that having time to socialise and talk to other members is important so we would encourage you to arrive at the golf club at approximately 6.30pm so that you can get a drink or tea, coffee and biscuits and have time to talk and meet other members before the meeting starts at 7.00pm. Tea is £1, coffee £1.75, biscuits from 50p.

Meet in the main bar/social area. The club meeting room is at the end of the room, just down a few stairs.
