Mendip Magic Membership Offer 2020

Mendip Magic Offer

New full memberships available from now until the end of June 2021, for the price of 12 months, and at 2019 prices!

New members who join under the Mendip Magic Offer will benefit from unlimited golf at a cost (dependent on the option chosen) which is less than the price of a monthly smartphone or broadband contract!

Mendip Golf Club is already magical:

·        A tremendous golf course, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

·        Unparalleled views across the Vale of Avalon and beyond

·        An all-year golf course which is in great condition, with all main tees and greens in play and a           full competition calendar already in full swing

·        Wonderful feedback from the 2019 Somerset County Championships and the chosen venue           for the European Junior Golf Tour in 2020

·        Award winning PGA Fellow Professional (Stuart Disney) and his team running Junior and                Get Into Golf schemes, superb coaching programmes and an award winning Pro Shop                      catering for all your golfing needs

·        Excellent family and golfer friendly clubhouse services supported by a great clubhouse team

Mendip is the best winter golf course in the area, with our excellent Greens Team having an enviable track-record of keeping the well-draining course fully in play.  But how does Mendip compare with other golf courses through the year? 

In 2019, Mendip was ranked as the 4th best golf course in Somerset by Top 100 courses (after Burnham and Berrow, Bath and Weston-super-Mare).

Our next target is to become the 2nd best golf course in Somerset, supported by outstanding practice facilities and clubhouse services.  We will deliver even more magic by:

·        The redevelopment of our 17th and 18th holes alongside our new Driving Range and Short               Game Practice Area (all due to open in 2021)

·        Completion of the complete renovation of our bunkers in 2020

·        The implementation of our Ecology plan – we are custodians of our wonderful location and             we are totally committed to a golf course that is in true harmony with its natural                                   surroundings, flora and fauna

·        Having the vision and commitment to change and grow with the times

We offer everyone a great place to meet new friends, socialise, stay fit and healthy and play a great sport.  We want you to become part of this magical journey with us, and to be welcomed to Mendip in 2020 by our whole team and over 550 existing members.  Whether you are brand new to golf or a seasoned player, Mendip Golf Club has much to offer you.

Effective immediately, we are offering new members an extra slice of Mendip Magic. Membership from now until the end of June 2021, for the price of 12 months, and based on 2019 prices.

Our annual membership year runs from July 1st. To become a new member, you pay the rates quoted below until the end of June 2021 via a one-off payment, or by taking the added advantage of a very attractive monthly direct debit scheme (at a one-off cost of £15 pa).

Membership Category

One-off amount payable from now until 30/06/2021 @ 2019 annual rates

Example monthly cost if you join on 01/03/20 (including Direct Debit fee)

Full 7-Day - £865 or monthly payments of £55

5 Day - £755 or monthly payments of £48.13

**For the first 25 new members (excluding Juniors) who join us under this offer, we will pay your additional Golf Union Fees and Insurance, until the end of June 2021, whereupon these charges will apply as set each year alongside the annual subscription rates. **

After the first 25 new member places are taken, Union Fees and Insurance charges will be payable by subsequent new-members at the current annual rate of £23.50 for men and £22.50 for women. This includes all Juniors who have a CONGU handicap.

The table above shows that if you were to join us as a Full-7 Day member on 1st March, 2020 as one of our first 25 new members under this offer, you would pay £865 for 16 months of golf until 30th June 2021.  This equates to £55 per month (including the Direct Debit setup fee of £15).  For an Aged 23-29 new member this falls to a monthly cost of only £26.28. 

New members who join under this offer can therefore benefit from unlimited golf until 30th June 2021 at a cost (dependent on the option chosen) which is less than the price of a monthly smartphone or broadband contract!

Just for good measure, we will also help you on your golf journey.  For all new Full 7-Day and 5 Day members, who join before the end of March 2020, we will also include a free voucher for £50 (£25 for all other Adult membership categories) for you to spend in the Pro Shop.

And finally, all Mendip members also benefit from free or reduced rate green fees at other golf clubs:

·       Mendip is part of the ‘1908 Clubs’ – made up of golf clubs who were founded in 1908.  Mendip          members receive free, reciprocal playing rights at 18 other 1908 clubs, which in our region                include: Stoneham, Tidworth Garrison, Wareham and Worlebury

·       Mendip is part of the Bristol & District RAG Scheme, enabling you to play at any of 17 other                local courses at a cost of £17.50

·       Mendip is a member of the County Card scheme which provides discounted green fees at                most golf clubs both in Somerset and across the country

There has never been a better time to join Mendip Golf Club as a full member.

Not enough time for full membership? We also offer an excellent Lifestyle membership option, our membership category built to suit your needs.  Each option (Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum) includes an increasing number of credits for rounds of golf, with the flexibility to top up more as required.  As a lifestyle member you will have all of the benefits of full membership (only excluding voting rights at general meetings and the ability to represent Mendip Golf Club in teams). 

To help all new members to become part of Mendip Golf Club, you can (if you wish) have the support of one of our Mendip Magic Mentors.  All volunteer members, our mentors are absolutely committed to helping you to start your magical journey with us.
