Friday Golf Society - Membership Costs and Benefits

When the society was first set up its annual year ran from 1 July to 30 June. In 2014 this was changed to 1 January to 31 December. Annual fees are due on 1 January each year from 2015 onwards. They can be paid in advance of this 1 January but they must be paid by no later than 28 February each year.

Membership Cost

There are two types of members of the society. Members and Temporary Members. All people who take part in society competitions and other events will be either Members or Temporary Members of the society.

Members

For 2011-12 and 2012-13 the annual membership fee is 20 euros. It is guaranteed that this figure will not increase in the period between 2011 and 2015. If a sufficient surplus of funds is accumulated by the society the committee may decide to reduce the annual membership fee in future years for members renewing their subscriptions.

The same membership fee applies to golfers and non-golfers. Note that non-golfers who are members must be partners or close relatives of a playing member of the society.

Temporary Members

People who do not wish to become members of the society may still play in most of the society competitions as Temporary Members.

Temporary members pay a weekly fee each time they play in a competition. For the normal Friday competitions (and summer Tuesday competitions) the temporary membership fee is 3 euros more than members pay (e.g. 8 euros each Friday with members paying 5 euros).

For major competitions such as the Woodsly Cup, England vs. ROE etc. Temporary Members will pay at least 10 euros more than members for each competition.

For Sunday competitions where there are considerable prizes available to the winners (e.g. gift vouchers for meals to the value of 50 euros and other gift vouchers) there is a premium to be paid by Temporary Members. Members pay 5 euros to enter and Temporary Members 15 euros.

Temporary Members will also pay a premium for entering all other events organised by the society.
