After moving house late last year I’m now too far away to stay as a member at my golf club. I did try it out for a couple of months as I really didn’t want to move, but almost an hour each way was just too much. The final straw was on the day I planned to be my last round I arrived to an empty car park to find out the course was closed due to snow (there was none by me and the website was updated 5 minutes after I left home!)
I reluctantly handed in my notice just before we started this latest lockdown (and before we knew it was coming) so now I’m without a club and need to find a new one. I’m fortunate to have a fair number within 30 minutes of home, some of which I’ve played before. They range from ‘traditional’ private members clubs to hotel resorts with everthing in between. So the question for everyone
How would you go about choosing a new club in a new area where you don’t know any of the members at any of them?
