The Flexible Golf Membership – Everything You Need to Know


There is a greater need for flexibility when it comes to golf memberships. Golf is an ever-popular sport, with approximately 4 million golfers in the UK and over 3000 golf courses to play on. In 2019, there were 3.9m golfers in the UK and approx. 1.3m of those belong to a golf club. This means 2.6m people that play the game and either pay green fees or membership discount rates. Unless you can dedicate a large proportion of your time to justify the cost of a full membership, perhaps a full traditional golf membership isn’t an option. Enter the flexible golf membership category. 

At PlayMoreGolf, you can receive the perks of a traditional golf membership, including preferential booking windows, 7-day-a-week golf course access and the ability to hold a handicap, all for the fraction of the cost. Plus, the additional flexibility of being able to play golf at more than one location, creating a smoother, more convenient and cost-effective experience.  

So, who would benefit from a more flexible golf plan? 

Flexible membership is particularly popular with golfers who don’t play enough golf to make a typical annual subscription to a golf club cost-effective, one of the most cited reasons why memberships at clubs have dropped so dramatically in the last decade. The membership category is also perfect for: 

  • Anyone who loves golf but cannot afford a local club membership.
  • Busy golfers who juggle work and family commitments and therefore require a greater selection of options as to when and where they play.
  • Anyone with professional or personal commitments requiring travel to another location within the UK.
  • Groups of friends or colleagues with varying schedules who want to co-ordinate their play using an easy, clear, online system.

The benefits of flexible golf membership 

Golfers who own a flexible golf membership have access to a range of exclusive benefits. With the main aim of saving money, each membership differs depending on the golf club or scheme, but benefits typically include: 

  • Seven days a week access to golf courses
  • Ability to play on multiple golf courses
  • Online booking system making it fast and easy
  • Hold an official CONGU handicap
  • Play in selected club competitions 
  • Discounts on food, drink, and in the club shop

As well as the above benefits, PlayMoreGolf members can also enjoy: 

  • Preferential booking windows
