The Golf Club Network was set up by a group of forward-thinking and like-minded golf clubs that understand that today's golf market is very different to what it once was. Nowadays golfers want more freedom to play a variety of courses and retain a membership of the club they love. It was obvious that financially this would not be viable for many golfers so The Golf Club Network was formed. It is designed to give you, the golfer, the best of both worlds, you can be a member of the club you love and play at many other courses without breaking the bank.
We are confident that you will get an excellent standard of golf course and fantastic level of service from all of our venues, after all, if you didn't they wouldn't be in the Network.
