The Society of 1908 Golf Clubs ( Updated 5th March 2014)
Houghton Golf Club has teamed up with other clubs which celebrated their centenary in 2008 to form the society of 1908 golf
This allows members the opportunity to play the courses of other member clubs either through a courtesy arrangement or at
reduced fees. Most clubs offer courtesy arrangements unless they are within 50 miles of Houghton Golf Club in which case
they offer 50% off green fees. One or Two clubs make separate arrangements which are detailed in the Terms & Conditions
It is a condition that prior arrangements are made through the Professional at the relative club and generally the offer is limlited
to up to 4 players per day.
Terms and Conditions of the Society
It has been agreed that where courtesy is given it should be for up to 4 players at a time and subject to the visitors calling in
advance to arrange a date and tee time.
Where Society clubs are within 50 miles of one another it is suggested, in order to obviate the possibility of abuse of the facility,
that a charge of 50% of the normal green fee be made.
Clubs may however mutually agree to vary these conditions, if they so wish, to either allow more than 4 visitors to play at any
one time, or to provide a courtesy if the clubs are within 50 miles of each other.
Because some Member Clubs are not privately owned they are not able to provide a courtesy within the principles set out.
Both Frilford Heath G C and Hollingbury Park G C cannot offer any courtesy.
Stoke Park G C, also known as Stoke Poges, has a daily green fee of £125 they have agreed to reducing this to £75 subject
to a booking being made through the Pro Golf Shop.
Penn Golf Club will offer the agreed courtesy but with playing restricted to week days only.
Ripon G C wish to charge 50% Green fee for all visitors due to excessive demand to play their courses.
