There are currently over 120 Stags and our main aim is to enjoy our golf in convivial company. The nature of the Stags competitions and matches mixes everyone up giving an opportunity of making friends outside your normal circle. All events and matches are open to players of all handicaps and if you don’t have a current handicap, entering our competitions is the fastest way of getting one.
Stags enrolment forms and subscription envelopes are held in the Club office and the Pro Shop.
On Monday and Tuesday mornings, tee times are normally reserved for the Stags between 8.00 and 9.00, just turn up and join in; it’s as simple as that.
