Why is it better to join a members’ golf club, rather than a proprietary club or simply pay and play?
Marlborough Golf Club is run by its members for the benefit of its members and their needs come first. We are non-profit making with any surplus reinvested for the benefit of the Club.
Will I have a problem getting games at short-notice or without pre-booking?
Marlborough is unusual in the area in not having starting times (except for a few major competitions). This means you can simply turn-up, with or without pre-arranged partners and be almost certain of a game.
How often will I have to put up with temporary greens and mats?
The chalk of the Marlborough Downs drains superbly which means we are able to stay open when others around us are waterlogged.
I’m new to the area and don’t really know anyone to play with.
Our ‘turn up and play’ policy means that you can be virtually assured of finding others to join up with. During the week and at weekends there are many informal ‘roll-up’ times when you will find lots of players assembling to make up groups. You will soon get to know people. We believe it is this system that has established our reputation for being a very friendly club. However, in the first instance we would be very happy to organise a game for you with a group of either a similar standard to yourself or close to the required time you wish to play.
I’ve never played before but would like to. How can I go about starting the game?
Contact us to learn about our beginners’ packages – memberships and lessons at a discounted price.
Are ladies welcome? And juniors too?
We encourage both and currently have over 80 lady and over 30 junior members. Whilst we are all equal members of one club our ladies and juniors run their own thriving sections.
Can I pay my fees by monthly instalments?
Yes, we can arrange to take your fees by monthly direct debit. Speak to us for more details.
How soon could I become a member?
You could become a member within a few days.
Are corporate memberships available too?
Yes. Please see the
Corporate Membership page on this website or contact us so that we can tailor a package to meet your requirements.
