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.

How often will I have to put up with temporary greens and mats?

We have two distinctive nine-holes, with the back nine which lays on chalk, and the front nine on a clay cap set on the Marlborough Downs. In general the golf course drains very well, however, the front nine, being of a parkland style on a clay cap, can strugle with we receive a large amount of rainfall. 

I’m new to the area and don’t really know anyone to play with.

We pride ourselves on being an extremely warm and friendly club. We have an innovative committee in "Club Life" which focuses on aspects to incllude the new members journey, integration, social scene, and every aspect of helping new members find golfing buddies to play with. You will soon get to know people.  

I’ve never played before but would like to. How can I go about starting the game?

We have put together a great pathway into membership to guide you through the various stages, from initial lessons, to purchasing the right golf equipment, and into joining the club. Check out our Pathway on the get into golf page of our site.

What tee time system do we currently operate?

We currently operate a hybrid tee time system, which offers a balance between being able to turn-up and play, and bookable tee times to guarentee your slot.

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 providing we have availability.
