From Ollie Young, Golf Operations Manager: We are now officially up and running under the new management of Get Golfing CIO. Here’s to an exciting new era and good times ahead for Arkley Golf Club.
As previously stated in the correspondence from Get Golfing CIO on Friday, May 21st, renewals will begin from Tuesday, June 1st. Fundamental to the way that Get Golfing operates is that Members pay their subscriptions monthly by direct debit, may I please ask that Members co-operate on this matter and avoid wishing to pay annually in advance.
We are introducing some very minor changes to membership categories to streamline the membership options. As part of this process, no member will be paying more for their membership in 2021/22 and you will be receiving much the same, if not more, benefits. These can be best illustrated below. (Introduce the member benefits chart below)
Some notable changes are shown below, and I will be available to discuss your options in detail from June 1st.
- A3 7-Day Student will renew as an Intermediate or Flexible Member
- A4 7-Day Flexible will renew as a Silver Flexible Member
- A5 7-Day Flexible Credit will renew as a Silver Flexible Member
- B1 7-Day Restricted will renew as a Full or Flexible Member
- G1 Social will now get 5% discount on F&B with the new ‘Partner Card’, which can also be used at all other affiliated clubs.
If you choose to maintain your subscription membership (Full, 5-day or an intermediate), you can opt to pay a further £25 per month (in addition to your Arkley subscriptions) and have access to all Get Golfing’s other venues.
In addition, if you are — or decide to become — a Flexible Member, you can use your points at all Get Golfing’s other clubs.
So that I can best manage your membership and ensure you have the correct category for your playing habits, can I ask you to pop in and see me during June.
As part of this process, we will be checking that the personal details we have for you are up to date as well as setting up your direct debit.
The first subscription collection will be in early July and will include May, June and July’s subscriptions, as well as your affiliation fees. After July’s collection, you will only be charged for the coming month’s subscription. For those members that have paid annually in advance, then we can tackle this on a case by case basis.
The membership transfer needs to be completed by June 30th. If any Member has not completed this process by then, access to the tee sheet will be restricted until it is done. From July 1st, the new membership benefits will commence. Please look at the chart on the membership page of the website to understand these best.
A reminder that from Tuesday, June 1st, the club will be going cashless, so any purchases made at the bar or paying for a green fee in the Pro Shop will have to be done by debit/credit or Member card.
If you would like to take up the option of a courtesy round at Mill Green Golf Club, on the 22nd June, please come and see me in the office with the names of your players and when you would like to tee off and I will arrange this for you.
Your Club Card balance has been transferred across to Get Golfing. We will also be transferring away from the current golf management software and will be advising you on this in due course.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me.
