Golf Visitors

At all times, visitors are the responsibility of the member who has invited them.

Individuals invited by a member to a ticketed Club function do not require a guest voucher.

Competitors in open tournaments are deemed to be visitors for the duration of the tournament and do not require a guest pass. Such visitors must sign in at the main gate and may only use those facilities particular to the tournament.

Members of visiting teams are deemed to be under the responsibility of the relevant host team and again do not need a guest pass. If the visiting team wishes to bring any non-competing visitors, the Club must be informed at least 24 hours in advance.

On entry to the Club, at the gatehouse, match managers of opposing teams are required to provide a team list. Any individual not included on this list (player or spectator) will not gain access to the Club.
