Club Members signing-in policy

You may be aware that the Golf Club has a special type of Alcohol License called a Club Premises Certificate, which allows us to serve alcohol (and provide other licensed entertainment e.g. music) to members and their guests. Members of the general public are, therefore, not allowed to take advantage of the clubhouse facilities unless they are with a member.

The Council, who are the licensing authority, appear to be examining the activities of clubs such as ours rather more closely at the moment and have asked us to put in place certain procedures to prove that we are acting within the letter and spirit of the law. As a result, we have to change certain of our procedures and we need your co-operation in the following areas:
1. If you bring a guest into the clubhouse for a drink /meal, please sign them in to the visitors’ book, which is located by the door to the main lounge in the Spike Bar.
2. If you have a party/function where you are inviting friends and family, Jenine will ask you to provide a guest list of those attending, which you will need to sign, thus confirming they are your guests for the function. A pro-forma is available from the office/Jenine in case of need.
3. If you are inviting someone/some people to play golf as your guest(s), when paying the green fee in the pro’s shop, you will be asked to sign the green fee sheet to confirm that the individual(s) you are playing with is/are your guest(s) for the day.

Given that the Club has several hundred members, the bar staff will sometimes not necessarily know whether the customer they are facing is a member or not. In order to ensure that we do not inadvertently serve people who are not members or guests of members, the bar cards which are available to all members will now double as a membership card. If the member of bar staff does not know a customer to be a member they will be asked to produce their bar card as proof of membership. If the customer cannot produce a bar card and cannot be confirmed as a member or guest of a member by any other means, that/those individual(s) will not be allowed access to the club. If you do not have a bar card, therefore, please contact the office to obtain one in order to prevent any potential embarrassment.

Members’ co-operation with these new procedures will be much appreciated as the consequences of not being compliant could mean the loss of the Club’s Alcohol License. If anyone has any queries at all, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
