How to join the society
The society is always on the look-out for new members to come and
join us. The only criteria with regards membership is that you should
not really be a complete beginner. Although we'd like to be able to
invite players of all abilities to join, as we can get large attendances
and tend to play at top quality and difficult venues on our golf days,
we feel it is important that members can get round the course at a
decent pace, something people who've only just taken-up the game cannot
As a general rule, if you can shoot 100 or less then you would be
welcome to join, we are only trying to discourage complete beginners and
admission is at the discretion of the committee, subject to the
applicants playing ability.
Society membership costs £25 per year and this covers the running
costs of the society as well as subsidising some of the golf days.
The membership period runs from 1st November to 31st October and
anyone joining during the season will pay a pro-rata amount of the £25
Please note that new members to the society who are members of a golf
club with a current active CONGU handicap will automatically have their
handicap cut by 10%, to fall in line with other society members (who
typically play off less within the society than their club handicaps).
New members who do not possess an active CONGU handicap will not be
eligible to win the first event they attend (or be eligible for a top
five prize). A new member will be grouped with a member of the BUNGS
committee on their first outing so their playing ability can be assessed
and suitable handicap given for future events.
