Customer Statement – Poult Wood March 2021

 

Dear Customer

 

As you are aware the Government has announced a roadmap to recovery and golf courses will be able to re-open from Monday, 29 March subject to confirmation of this date by the Government. We hope you are as excited as us about the prospect of getting back to golf later this month.

We are busy getting both courses ready for 29 March and will be able to welcome golfers back on a pre-booked basis only with 2, 3 and 4 ball golf permitted. The Driving Range will also be open and some coaching may take place. However, at this stage the Pro Shop will remain closed for retail sales and the bar/restaurant will also stay closed.

We expect the Pro Shop to open and drinks to be served outdoors from 12 April with the bar/restaurant opening indoors from 17 May under the Rule of Six. Finally, all restrictions should be lifted including a review on use of rakes, flagsticks and exchange of scorecards from 21 June. As mentioned above all of these dates should be treated as ‘not before’ dates and are subject to confirmation by Government. We are, of course, hopeful that any amendments to the road map will still as a minimum allow the safe playing of golf to continue.

In terms of pre-booking our online bookings will open from 22 March for all 5 and 7 day members who will, as usual, be able to book up to 9 days in advance. Online booking for discount card holders will open from 24 March with booking allowed up to 7 days in advance. Non-members will be able to book up to 48 hours in advance from 27 March. Please note that the Pro Shop will be open for telephone bookings on this basis between the hours of 10am and 4pm from 22 March.

We hope those of you who are members will be re-joining for the forthcoming year and our headline monthly DD charges, including club membership and payable from 28 March for April are shown below for 2021/22;

  • 7 Day Membership - £73 pcm
  • 5 Day Membership - £51 pcm

Existing Members paying by Direct Debit have outstanding credit from the payment made on 28 December and should you choose to renew for April, the first payment that will be taken on 28 March will be reduced to the equivalent of one weeks payment with the full amount reinstated on 28 April going forwards.

Our annual members have, of course suffered the loss of play during the pandemic and therefore anyone re-joining for a full year in April will receive a discount as follows;

  • 7 Day Member who joined prior to the first lockdown in March will receive a discount of £313 making the 2021/22 annual fee £522.
  • 7 Day Member who joined after the first lockdown from mid-May will receive a discount of £181 making the 2021/22 annual fee £654.
  • 7 day Founder Members receive a further £40 discount on the rates above.
  • 5 Day Member who joined prior to the first lockdown in March will receive a discount of £202 making the 2021/22 annual fee £382
  • 5 Day Member who joined after the first lockdown from mid-May will receive a discount of £121 making the 2021/22 annual fee £463.
  • 5 day Founder Members receive a further £29 discount on the rates above.

Finally, anyone who holds a Discount Card that was still valid on 4 January 2021 will be extended for a further 83 days representing the latest closure period during January to March.

Details of all our fees and charges for 2021/22 which will be applicable from 29 March 2021 may be found on our website. This now includes our new GOLF21 membership for those aged 18 - 21 year sold at just £30 per month to help bridge the gap for younger golfers moving from a junior to an adult membership.

If you have any queries regarding booking, membership or fees and charges at Poult Wood please do call the Pro Shop on 01732 364039 or email memberships@tmactive.co.uk.

Best Regards,
