Car Park Update

The ANPR camera and warning notices have now been installed. We anticipate the camera becoming active on Wednesday 11th July 2018.  The following criteria apply:

  • Full golfing member = unrestricted parking rights 24/7
  • 5 Day members = unrestricted parking rights Mon- Fri
  • Intermediate (18-30 yrs.) = unrestricted parking rights 24/7
  • Parking membership = unrestricted parking rights 24/7

ALL OTHER GOLFING MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES REQUIRE ON THE DAY REGISTRATION OF YOUR VEHICLE NUMBER PLATE

 There will be two terminals located inside the building upon which you can enter your car registration numbers. The first is in the pro-shop primarily for golfers to use. The second located at the end of the bar.

 SOCIAL MEMBERS & OTHER CLUBHOUSE USERS

 You will be required to input your car -registration number each time you are using the premises. This will entitle you to a three hour stay before having to re-input the number. Those person’s dropping off at the clubhouse will have a 10-minute grace to drop off and leave prior to the camera activating.

We ask that members recognise that the purpose of the camera installation is to free car-park spaces for genuine users of the club facilities and to stop an increasing trend of misuse. Members who allow friends or family to use their registered car to park will be in contravention of the parking regulations and will be liable to a fine unless that person is using the golf club facilities.

Please note you are only entitled to park your car whilst using the club facilities. Failure to comply with the conditions will result in the registered keeper of the vehicle receiving a £100 parking penalty fine enforced by a third-party enforcement agency.

And then there were 2……..!
