Associate Membership is intended as a step towards Full or Intermediate membership; it is directed towards a smooth development program which encompasses developing skill levels with the many other aspects of Golf Club Membership. Alternatively this membership category is suitable for golfers who only wish to play socially when the course is quiet.
As part of the membership, Associate Members can take advantage of the expertise of our PGA Professional. The format for the coaching is flexible and can be arranged to suit personal requirements.
Associate Members have full use of the extensive practice facilities; an excellent practice ground, pitching area, putting and chipping green. They are able to play on the golf course after 12pm on a Sunday, Wednesday and Friday having attained a level of ability and understanding approved by the Professional. There is an obligation to sign in at the Golf Shop prior to playing but the Member's bag tag must be displayed at all times. Associate Members have all social member rights, and are provided a discount membership card but do NOT enjoy any competitive golf or hold a handicap and there are no voting rights.
* The current Associate Membership Annual Subscription rate is £365 (+ £2 insurance).
* Practice balls are charged at Members Rates.
* Buggy Hire is charged at Members Rates.
Newark Golf Club was founded in 1901; it is owned entirely by the members. The Club values the traditions of the great game of golf but has a thoroughly modern outlook. The Club provides facilities for members, their guests, and visitors, that are first class in every respect.
There are many reasons why people join a golf club. For most, membership of a club will offer a chance to play on a regular basis and enjoy the company of fellow golfers. Some look forward to the challenge of playing regular competitions and others want to establish a handicap to monitor their improvement and be evenly matched against their friends. The game is believed to have originated in Scotland and is steeped in tradition. The unique handicapping system allows people of different abilities to play against and with each other; you don't have to be big, strong, fast or part of a team to be successful, because anyone, young or old, male or female can enjoy the benefits of golf. It is a stimulating challenge which gets you out in the fresh air in pleasant surroundings and is an excellent way of exercising. Amateur golf is one of the few sports that allows children, parents and grandparents the enjoyment of playing together competively from a level playing field; throughout the golfing world there are many examples.
New members of Newark Golf Club certainly enjoy all of that and much more; at a very reasonable price!! Not only do they get to know lots of people and have a great time on a quality golf course, they enjoy a busy social life, in a friendly atmosphere, in a super clubhouse, making lifelong friends. We have members who have been participating for over 30 years and are still going strong well into their 80’s.
All Members are issued with a membership card which allows discount on food, drink and golfing equipment along with entrance and exit of the Golf Club and Clubhouse. As a registered Community Amateur Sports Club membership of Newark Golf Club is restricted only by the maximum number of members allowed within the Club rules. Associate Membership is an excellent inexpensive way to learn all aspects of the game and ensures a pathway to a full membership.
