Competition

The goal of a many golfers is to get their handicap down, and the reality is that the only way to do that is in club competitions. Playing in club competitions whether they are the Club Championship, Weekly Medal, or Christmas Shotgun, provides the opportunity for members to enjoy the competitive nature of the game, meet new golfers, win prizes, and ultimately improve as a golfer. You don't join a cricket or netball team with the intention of never playing a competitive match. Golf is a competitive sport, and the best way to experience this is by playing in club competitions.

Preferred Tee Times

If you are a weekend-only golfer then a membership is critical to your enjoyment, with peak playing times often reserved purely for our members. This ensures calm, quiet periods for our members to enjoy their golf. While paid visitors will occasionally find during peak hours to play, there is no guarantee and they risk being turned away.

The Value of Opens and Club Matches

Aside from the internal golf club competitions, being a member of Bridgnorth Golf Club affords you the opportunity to play in open competitions at other clubs. We have reciprocal arrangements with other local golf clubs, offering you the opportunity of playing them at significantly discounted rates. Couple this with the prospect of playing in friendly matches against many local clubs there really are tremendous opportunities to play an expansive array of golf courses through our membership.

Extra Rounds

Evening rounds in the summer are some of the most enjoyable times to be on the course, and often some of the quietest. A spontaneous few holes every now and then, maybe followed by a shower and meal in our club bar, are a real member's privilege.

Clubhouse

The clubhouse delivers value to your membership, not only in a social sense but a financial one, too. As a member at Bridgnorth you will enjoy a substantial discount in the restaurant and bar, and the atmosphere in your own clubhouse provides a real sense of belonging. You can also feel comfortable using the golf club as a place to relax, be it before or after a round, or simply as a social club.

Facilities & Improvement

The practice facilities are a huge benefit for Bridgnorth golf club members, and.as a member of the club you get unlimited, free access. There are areas to practice your putting, short game and drives all year round.

Professional Services

Bridgnorth Golf club is fortunate to have a PGA qualified teaching professional at the club. Steve Russell runs a well-stocked shop and will be happy to help you out with coaching, individual lessons, club fitting, club repair and re-gripping and demo clubs - none of which you will get from an online retailer!

Signing in Guests

Whether it's a colleague, a client or just a friend, there is a certain pleasure to be had in extending an invitation to come and play at "my club". As a member you are able to sign in up to three guests at any one time up to three times a year who each receive a significant discount on the daily green fees.
